"MacNeal's images and characters are true to the time, and the resonance of several of the subplots with current events deepen the impact of the tale; MacNeal is to be commended for her skillful weaving of racial and gender issues into an already complex political picture. . . . There's a tremendous amount of world and U.S. history in this delightful volume."--Historical Novels Review
