Review:

"Lush and loaded as a bluegrass lick. . . . Come and Go, Molly Snow is as contagious as the music it describes."―Philadelphia Enquirer

"Music spills out of this story. . . . The language is fresh, strong, and as appealing as Carrie Mullins."―San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

"Recommended reading. . . . One's interest is consistently held by the sheer wealth of feeling that the author's mellow prose sets flowing through the pages."―New Yorker

"A remarkable first novel. . . . [Carrie's] passion fills this novel with lyrical intensity. Her spirit leaps from the narrative like an inspired improvisation."―People

"In writing of great beauty and honesty, Taylor-Hall has achieved that rare thing, a genuine evocation of a mother's grief. One reads this novel with a kind of dull ache in the chest."―New York Newsday

"This book is more finely crafted than a wooden instrument and more deeply honest than a mountain song. It picked me up and won't let go of me. . . . it made me even more in love with the world."―Pam Houston

"There's music in Come and Go, Molly Snow . . . but something grander, too, something almost sublime: the song of a woman's loss and pain, the song of her redemption."―Los Angeles Times

"This vernacular and gorgeous book very simply and without frills takes it all on, from the hilarious to the shattering, and leaves you with a lingering, hard-to0place tune in your ears."―Elle

"Mighty fine. . . . Mary Ann Taylor-Hall's real achievement in her first novel is to bring us inside a grieving woman's mind and enrich us with her grief."―Washington Post Book World

"Exquisite . . . As in Jane Hamilton's A Map of the World, the events of this story are searing, but the writing is like a plaintive, unforgettable song. . . . Not to be missed."―Publisher's Weekly

"Taylor Hall's book, as it turns out, is like those golden peaches, to be savored time and time again."―Journal of Appalachian Studies
