Critical Praise

"With a poet's eye for luminous detail and a mother's heart, Chessman traces her character's erratic path through unspeakable grief and insistent hope."

——Christina Schwarz, author of Drowning Ruth

"In deft, impressionistic prose, Harriet Scott Chessman has given us an elegant, haunting novel of memory and its loss, flickering like a beautiful dying candle flame, full of private heroisms. So true, so true."

——Susan Vreeland, author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue
