"Ni Dhuibhne skillfully turns what seems like a dim bleak image into a tale full of compassion, pathos, intrigue, reflection, and even humor... [Her] deft and deliberate hand will delight all short-story lovers. A great one for the nightstand, although one of two might be best read during daylight hours."
