Review:

"Sidonie's life, and Yochim's novel, are alive with the flavors, smells and sounds of the Atchafalaya and the Cajun people living there, with the customs and cooking, the folklore and rhythms of the language. Yochim's depictions of the swamp are sensory and evocative. Yochim does not let us forget for a moment that the human and natural worlds are one. The story of Sidonie and her struggle for selfhood, of the Cajun community, of the swamp and the life burgeoning from it, are laced together in complex and beautiful ways throughout her novel. Open these pages and you will find yourself transported immediately into that world: Into "the mystical space of the great Atchafalaya, the unending swamp of the towering cypresses, that region of shadowy mystery and strange night music". "Jill Jepson -- from her Writing as a Sacred Path blog" In her novel, "Swamp", author Karen Yochim skillfully uses the mystery, danger, and lushness of swampland to create a story both realistic and mystical. She places her novel not just in any swamp, but in the magnificent Atchafalaya, the largest swamp in North America, in the late 19th Century, just before Yankee loggers came to wreak havoc on it. "Swamp", like the setting it is named for, is laced with mystery: A man disappears. A body emerges. An ominous stranger appears out of the North. Objects are stolen and lost, identities questioned. As in a swamp, nothing in the lives of Yochim's rich multifaceted characters can be taken for granted."
