Editorial Reviews

“Proves again that Berry is one of our most ambitious writers. Happily for us, that ambition so often results in great success.”  - Booklist Online (starred review)

"An unforgettable romance so Olympian in scope, human at its core, and lyrical in its prose that it must be divinely inspired." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Julie Berry [is] a modern master of historical fiction for young readers. . . Berry’s superb research and attention to detail are perfectly suited to the layers of this story of love in wartime . . . [a] romantic yet unflinching look at teenagers coming of age during World War I." -Bookpage (starred review)

"Berry’s evocative novel starts slow but gains steam as the stories flesh out. Along the way, it suggests that while war and its devastation cycles through history, the forces of art and love remain steady, eternal, and life-sustaining." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
