Reviews

Riveting...A fierce, elliptical novel that's both a gripping psychological thriller and highly moving meditation on the emotional consequence of war. --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times A classic mystery...Only the best historical fiction can make the journey into a distant time and return with a believable sense of how things really were. That Japrisot's book has done so is a mark of his great talent. --Paul Watkins, The Washington Post Book World Magical...Part romance, part mystery, part history, part exploration of the dogged pursuit of the improbable, it commands attention from first to last. -- The Boston Globe
