Reviews

"Like Tracy Chevalier in "Girl with the Pearl Earring, "Gregson excels at developing strong, complex female voices; a swift plot; and a story that will hold readers from beginning to end." "Booklist " Unforgettable. "Historical Novels Review" It s a testament to Gregson s skill that she lures readers on board and makes us believe even cheer on the grisly twists. She might get away with it because she s so careful with her pacing and character development. She doesn t race straight to the guts; she instead gives us enough of village life to hook us, make us believe, make us care about Sari s strangeness, and the village s general sicknesses and plucky misery, before any angels are made. Furthermore, Gregson possesses an enviable talent for delivering a full character in just a few lines . her prose hangs together well overall and demonstrates an elegant ability to shift perspective, an acuity with handling the passage of time, and a touch for simple, transformative moments of beauty. Fiction Writer's Review Gregson has created in Sari so curious a character that the novel, based on a true story, springs vividly alive. Grade: B+ Clevland Plain Dealer "Basing her novel on a true story, Gregson draws the reader into Sari s conflicted world . Gregson s cautionary tale is all the more chilling for its basis in reality. Curled Up With a Good Book"
