Praise

★ ”The smooth writing and… distinct narrative voice make this debut novel compelling from the start. Benton’s spot-on description of the sparse mountain setting with its social isolation and desperate poverty draw readers into the corrupt, complex times of the Great Depression. Though these elements are grim, they are balanced by strong themes of family and trust. When combined with the tense, realistic plot, a gripping piece of historical fiction emerges.” — Booklist, starred review

“Smooth, lyrical writing and crisp regional dialogue are the strengths of this debut. Benton knows his landscape… and should be a strong voice for the future… a fine adventure.” — Kirkus Reviews


“Benton has captured a unique moment in time in a unique setting… and woven an exquisite story. Cub and Pa will sneak into your heart and it will be hard to let them go. This is an outstanding choice for a curriculum tie-in on the Great Depression. Teachers and school librarians will want to add this to their collection.” — School Library Connection
