Daniel Hecht's story made me fall in love -- with a hard land and a harder way of life, with tough women and noble men, and the complex ecosystem that is the human family. . . . In times of darkness, a story like this gives light, and strength, and hope.
-- Laurie R. King, New York Times bestselling author of
The Beekeeper's Apprentice and twenty-five other novels.
