Reviews

Globe and Mail Fiction Bestseller Chevalier is a master at foregrounding the small, dramatic stories of overlooked people from the past. Geraldine Brooks Sometimes, a book comes along that somehow ticks all the boxes. This is one of those books: The voices are rich and individual; the attention to detail impressive; the scent of apples, damp earth, and pines runs potently through the whole. A joy. Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat With impeccable research and flawless prose, Chevalier perfectly conjures the grandeur of the pristine Wild West Robertencounters, the bawdiness of the period, and the commanding needs of the everyday adventurers male and female who were bold enough or foolish enough to be drawn to the unknown. She crafts for us an excellent experience. USA Today A well written tale about people with courage, including strong women who make the best of what life offers. Washington Times Chevalier is a gifted conjurer. The New York Times Book Review Excellently researched brings to life a seminal chapter in American history A compelling look at what was lost and gained in westward expansion. People A heartbreaking narrative of an Ohio pioneer family s struggles A pleasureable literary experience. BookPage Chevalier s research is painstakingly detailed without weighing down the story Chevalier has created a patchwork of stories together they form a picture of lives wrested from an unforgiving land, but with a promise of renewal. The Guardian Praise for Tracy Chevalier: "Evokes entire landscapes...a master of voices." New York Times Book Review (on Falling Angels) "Absorbing...[Chevalier] creates a world reminiscent of a Vermeer interior: suspended in a particular moment, it transcends its time and place." The New Yorker (on Girl With a Pearl Earring) Chevalier admirably weaves historical figures and actual events into a compelling narrative. San Francisco Chronicle (on Remarkable Creatures) "Chevalier's signature talent lies in bringing alive the ordinary day-to-dayness of the past...lovingly evoked." Elle (on Burning Bright) "Chevalier's ringing prose is as radiantly efficient as well-tended silver." Entertainment Weekly (on Falling Angels) From the Hardcover edition."
