“A rare combination of superb reporting
and narrative skill.”—The New York Times Book Review

Facing the Wind . . . elevates itself out of the true crime genre into literature.”—USA Today

“[Julie Salamon’s] book is important not only for its lessons on the ravages of mental illness but for its ability to overturn our assumptions about evil, innocence, guilt and compassion.”—The Wall Street Journal

“This grim, gripping story is far more than a sensational murder case. . . .[Salamon] offers a rare, fascinating look at the daily lives of the men and women least inclined to forgive Bob Rowe—parents raising handicapped children.”—People

“Splendid . . . Life’s cruelest blows are struck in these pages, and Salamon records them with scrupulous accuracy. . . . It’s to her credit that she doesn’t shy away from showing the aftershocks of these tragedies, and her triumph in Facing the Wind is in showing how the human heart keeps throbbing anyway.” —Newsday
