    The Speed of Light is a must read

    For me, reading The Speed of Light was like stepping into a nightmare that is transformed into a meaningful dream. The language of poetry interwoven with scientific facts gently carries the reader forward and backward, all the while in a vehicle that feels very familiar and personal. Liz Rosner's poetry, written long before this novel, holds the same mystique. Perhaps when one has chosen stories so steeped in trauma it is almost mandatory to soften the path to the darkness with the delicacy of poetic words and images. The Speed of Light will live on in the heart of anyone who reads it in much the same way as the inherited stories must live on in the present lives of each character.

    Words for Your Bones

    Rosner's beautiful tale of loneliness and the inevitable connection we have to others and the past is one that deserves attention. Her prose is almost too wonderfully poetic to be called prose. There is not only one story here, there are three; and then, really, there are many more. This is one of the most affecting novels I have read in a while. It has a subtle way of sneaking into your bedtime thoughts and daydreams. It will sit on your desk or coffeetable, softly calling to you like the wind.

    Fantastic and Engrossing Read

    An incredible first novel. A story told in three voices -- each voice filled with emotion and character. Rosner captures the essence of her characters and the story line is powerful. This book is lyrical.
