  • More praise for Anita Shreve:

    "One cannot help but compare this fine contemporary writer with the likes of literary giant Edith Wharton . . . . Shreve is by far one of the finest novelists of her time . . . . She is a consummate storyteller." (Boston Herald).

  • "As Anthony Trollope was in his day, Anita Shreve is prolific, polished, unputdownable . . . . And as she demonstrates her seemingly effortless ability to bridge that perceived chasm between literary and popular fiction, she will continue to satisfy a thoughtful audience while still managing to sell like hotcakes." (Guardian).
