An elegiac celebration of the redemptive power of love and community, by the prolific poet, novelist, and essayist. A precise and moving evocation both of a vanishing lifestyle and of the liberating power of faith. - Kirkus Reviews

Berry's narrative style is deliberately traditional, and the novel's pace is measured and leisurely. Crow's life, which begins as WWI is about to erupt, is emblematic of a century of upheaval, and Berry's anecdotal and episodic tale sounds a challenge to contemporary notions of progress. It is to Berry's credit that a novel so freighted with ideas and ideology manages to project such warmth and luminosity. -- Publisher's Weekly
