Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Kimmel offers a beautifully wrought portrait of the brilliant and psychotic Trace Pennington…Kimmel skillfully weaves together Trace’s lucid moments and her diminishing sanity, providing a full picture of a troubled woman whose identity, past, and present are repeatedly called into question.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Disturbing and haunting, Kimmel’s latest novel builds slowly and ominously, ratcheting up the suspense right up to the final page and captivating the reader with Trace’s frightening downward spiral.” Booklist
“[Kimmel] has crafted a dark and complex tale of dual personalities…The novel remains grounded in its striking prose, its unique portrayal of mental illness, and, most important, its captivating main character, Trace Pennington.” Bookmarks magazine
“Haven Kimmel not only writes like an angel, she has a gorgeous warm voice and skills any actor would envy. I can’t imagine a better narrator to present Trace’s searching, terrible confusion, her incantatory understanding of the world, and the utterly harrowing truth about her past. Stunning work in every way.” AudioFile
