I have missed reading Jeffrey Lent after his terrific earlier novels.  This current book is absolutely wonderful, capturing the essence of post-civil war life in New York state with marvelous character development. Highly recommended!

After Thomas Hardy my favorite author. So glad he's at it again

Somehow kept reading in spite of impatience with the pace. Needed to know what happened. Lovely language, heartfelt, insightful, spiritually mature. But maybe a bit too languorous, at least for my taste.

Entertaining and thought provoking story.

Really excellent historical fiction. It takes a few pages to get into the flow of the language of the book, but stay with it - it is well worth it. The novel includes betrayal, great loyalty, faith, war, deep love, evil, a sociopath, hard work, and more. Really well written. This book deserves an A+++++
