IN THE PRESS
Beautiful, evocative prose.
The eye for the telling detail paired with solid dialogue and a narrative that moves between past and present with ease, this poignant story captured time and place, and the immediate attention of all the judges.
My boys love this book. We had the older version from the library and had to get this Second Edition!
