"Blue Sabine is a big, spellbinding novel, as deep and complex as the Texas river for which it's named. The mystery and relevance of the past is Gerald Duff's great theme, as he masterfully traces one family's history from the Civil War to the present day. His great characters are all astonishing storytellers, with true and compelling voices that will ring in my head forever."
--Lee Smith, author of Mrs. Darcy and the Blue-Eyed Stranger and On Agate Hill
"Blue Sabine [is] a veritable saga of insights, intimacies and intimations. The characters are obsessed with their family, and the reader is completely caught up in this American story set in the historic valley of the Sabine."
--Roy Blount Jr., author of Alphabetter Juice: The Joy of Text
