Praise

“A beautiful and brilliant work of art, vulnerable, driven, and unsettling. . . . Extraordinary.” Madeleine Thien, author of Do Not Say We Have Nothing

“Brilliant and harrowing. . . . There is something of Mark Twain in this telling and something of Willa Cather, a narrative as ingenious in its mix of points of view as Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying.” —Robert Hass, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Time and Materials

“A dark and mythopoetic novel . . . Beautifully rendered. . . . . Epic.” —The Globe and Mail

“Excellent. . . . A drama set in the late 1850s as conflicts over slavery and abolition tear apart a Virginia plantation family. . . . Rife with historical detail.” —Publishers Weekly

“Timely, historically sensitive. . . . A literary saga. . . . Explores the ramifications of slavery on the next generation of the Dickinson family. . . . Spectacularly described.” —Booklist

“An engrossing, deftly crafted narrative. . . . Taking up the lives of the Dickinson family from her last historical novel, Spalding follows the misfortunes of patriarch Daniel’s sons.” —Kirkus Reviews
