Los Angeles Times Book Review
"THIS IS THE GRIPPING STORY OF A REAL CONFLICT. . . . Denise Giardina tells the miners' stirring story with a fierceness and passion. This is a fine, moving book."
"If we are very lucky, every few years there arrives a novel that is so moving, so instantly successful . . . that it towers high over much else that is being published. Storming Heaven is that novel."
The Cleveland Plain Dealer
"An excellent book, full of fine observations and vivid characters . . . Giardina is a gifted writer."
