Critical Praise

"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

"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
