Editorial Reviews

“Equal parts paranoid tension and quiet wonder . . . A nuanced portrayal of the connection between Bea and Lou.”Publishers Weekly

“Walden is up to her usual visual tricks in her latest, with intriguingly layered, intricately detailed images in rich, warm, sunset colors that lack concrete realism but cultivate powerful atmosphere . . . A moving story of recovery and resilience.” Booklist, starred review

"Walden crafts a story rich in metaphor about two gay women on a journey through trauma and grief...A tsunami of emotions―sharp and heavy."Kirkus
