Review

"A winner. Once again, Shreve's fans can approach her book with the confident anticipation that she will provide yet another satisfying experience. "A Change in Altitude "is an unusual kind of page-turner, part whodunit, part adventure story....Readers will vicariously enjoy all facets of this adventure in Africa from the safety of their own armchair."-- Free-Lance Star "Diane Makovsky "

PRAISE FOR A CHANGE IN ALTITUDE:

"Visual and sharply focused....Shreve knows how to keep a reader engaged." Valerie Sayers, "Washington Post""

"No one is better at gently, but thoroughly probing the interior life of her characters than Anita Shreve...."A Change in Altitude "reflects many of Shreve's familiar themes: loss and grief, the relationship between a man and woman, and how one moment can change a life forever. Shreve weaves a strong mix of exotic Africa and interesting characters, producing a potent story that will keep readers thinking about them long after the last page of the novel." Mary Foster, "Newsday""

"Shreve takes readers from Nairobi's lush suburbs to its fetid slums, from the drawing-room world of the white gentry to that of its black servants...."A Change in Altitude "rises a few thousand feet above typical women's fiction." Olivia Barker, "USA Today""

"Prepare to cancel all your appointments as you race through this dramatic saga....Enthralling. The mountains Margaret must climb-literally, and figuratively-are difficult ones. Readers will be eager to learn if she successfully scales the peak." Eliza Borne, "Bookpage""

"Awinner. Once again, Shreve's fans can approach her book with the confident anticipation that she will provide yet another satisfying experience. "A Change in Altitude "is an unusual kind of page-turner, part whodunit, part adventure story....Readers will vicariously enjoy all facets of this adventure in Africa from the safety of their own armchair." Diane Makovsky, "Free-Lance Star""

PRAISE FOR A CHANGE IN ALTITUDE:
