Review:

“A gifted storyteller...her characters are intelligent, brave, and witty...human and real.” (Susan Isaacs, New York Times Book Review)

“It’s funny without sacrificing intelligence, intelligent without being pretentious. It’s all-around good reading.” (Boston Globe)

“Gutcheon has an impeccable fix on time, place, and native customs — and...pathos of a vanished youth.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“This is the story of those crucial relationships and of a harrowing loss of innocence.” (Library Journal)

“The author moves in and knows the world about which she writes. Good entertaining reading.” (Pensacola News)
