"[An] amazing story." -- Pam Houston "Written with courage, compassion, and an uncommon wisdom... This book is a reckoning with truth." -- Terry Tempest Williams "Solomon succeeds so admirably where Krakauer fails. She has produced a book sprinkled with both beauty and 'indelible sadness'." "I have never read a memoir that moved me so deeply." -- Teresa Jordan "Her harrowing family history and bracingly vivid, frequently poetic memoir is a document of consistent fascination and intermittently astonishing power." "Bold and strongly imagined...takes us deep to the heart of a family story that is both strange and familiar." -- Kim Barnes "A wise and moving memoir that should be read by anyone interested in how we configure our relationships." -- Judith Freeman
