What People are saying about this

Roger C. Schlobin
Anyone who has ever doubted the psychological link between fantasy and life will be quickly corrected by this insightful and highly recommended novel. (Roger C. Schlobin, FANTASY NEWSLETTER)
Theodore Sturgeon
Smile a lot, yes, and then weep a little, and hold your breath, and wonder at the wisdom and the whimsy of it..depending on how much you bring to it, the book is metaphor, it is fable; it makes a statement, has a moral, looks back at you, from time to time, like a mirror. (Theodore Sturgeon, TWILIGHT ZONE)
John Clute
Sprightly and moving. (John Clute, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FANTASY)
Anne McCaffrey
A depth and freshness of observation that is uncommonly astute and poignant.
Stephen R. Donaldson
Nancy Kress has the true storyteller's Gift -- the ability to make her characters and what happens to them so vital that the reader's heart aches.
