Kate FlatleyIn When Mountains Walked, the strength of this book lies in Ms. Kate Wheeler's lyrical use of language. She has gift for tangible, descriptive writing. The reader will be able to see the land of India as as "the color of lions...the color of eternal dust" and feels Maggie's relief in Peru when [the nights] descended, bringing coolness, the scent of leaves, wet dirt, and flowers, and dissolving the canyon walls. When Mountains Walkedsubtly questions how much is too much to sacrifice in a relationship. It is a deftly written debut by a gifted storyteller.
