Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lyrical…Chessman is adept at setting a mood.” Publishers Weekly
“Norma Lang narrates in an even and introspective tone. Her quiet and steady examination of the corners of Hallie’s past and present is appropriately low-key and well tempered.” AudioFile
“Chessman captures the inner workings of the mind and the processes by which decisions are made. Her prose, well read by Norma Lana, is thoughtful, and her characters are beautifully constructed.” Library Journal
“A poetic and moving first novel.” Booklist
“A quietly lyrical debut about a young woman coming to terms with family and mortality…A compelling and sensitive portrayal…Chessman’s style is fluid and unobtrusive, and manages to be meditative without being abstract.” Kirkus Reviews
