Reviews

Through a narrative strategy that alternates chapters between John's plight and Helen's search, Payton effectively gives the reader two visions-and two versions-of a neglected aspect of World War II. -- Kirkus Reviews Payton, in the loveliest of prose, illuminates a little-known aspect of WWII while portraying a devoted couple who bravely face down the isolation, pain, and sacrifice of wartime. -- Booklist Top-notch...Payton has delivered a richly detailed, vividly resonant chronicle of war's effect on ordinary people's lives. -- Publishers Weekly A suspenseful, beautifully researched title that readers will want to devour in one sitting. -- Library Journal (starred review) Brian Payton's remarkable novel is a tightly wound double helix: the gripping tale of a man struggling to save his own life entwined with the heartrending tale of a woman struggling to save her marriage. As both love story and war story, it is a revelation. -- Julia Glass, National Book Award-winning author In his gripping, meditative second novel, Brian Payon explores this nearly forgotten chapter of American history...The borders between ingenuity and insanity, honor, and murder all blur as Easley comes face to face with the darkest parts of nature in a place where 'thin fog softens every edge and line.' -- New York Times Book Review What a greathearted, beautifully written, and utterly riveting novel. The Wind Is Not a River has a power that brings to mind the old Greek stories of war, love, and journey. -- Ron Rash, New York Times bestselling author
