Praise

“Humphreys has always been a master of telling a larger story through a deceptively intimate narrative, and Rhoda’s tale, with its clear, distinct voice, is no exception.” The New Yorker

“A novel so compelling works a kind of magic, casting a spell. . . . She has distilled to a splendid coherence the complexities of history and the human heart.” —The Washington Post

“With fluid writing, nuanced characters, and a suspenseful pace, Humphreys blends historical romance with a meditation on the ambiguities of race and morality.” —Time

“Josephine Humphreys has always been a very, very, good novelist…with Nowhere Else on Earth…[she] has taken a quantum leapfrom very, very, good to extraordinary.” —The San Diego Union-Tribune

“Though I loved her three previous novels, Nowhere Else on Earth … the narrator, Rhoda Strong, belongs to the ages, a fabulous creation.” Pat Conroy
