Críticas:

Oh, what a incandescent debut! From the atomic bomb tests at Los Alamos to the Vietnam War protests to the fascinating lives of crows, Church follows one extraordinary woman, who is brave to enough to challenge the times, take defiant wing, and chart her own extraordinary flight path. So engrossing, I couldn t wait to read another page, and so alive, I never wanted the story to end. Caroline Leavitt, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Is This Tomorrow" and "Pictures of You" This exquisite debut is the beautifully written story of a woman who must negotiate the tricky terrain of love, responsibility, ambition and sacrifice. In her impeccable portrayal of a long marriage, Elizabeth Church weaves together the historical and the personal and shows the impossible choices women faced - and still face - between family and self. Tara Conklin, author of "The House Girl" "

"Church s debut will likely strike a chord, especially with women who find that not much has changed in our patriarchal society since Meri s time, and that Meri s story might well be their own." Poornima Apte for "Booklist" Church's debut novel explores the relationship between sacrifice and love...Church's commentary on the American nuclear family, particularly the expectations placed on women, showcases iterations ranging from doting housewives and mothers who are content in their roles to the rebellious. Each sentence drives the plot further, exploring love's limits and its spoils. But it's Church's exploration of Meridian's role in her relationships that is the most gracefully executed feat of the novel. Meridian's voice is poignant, a mixture of poetry and observation...An elegant glimpse into the evolution of love and womanhood. "Kirkus Reviews" Oh, what a incandescent debut!
