Review quote

"Louise Erdrich gives a powerful vision of the broad stages that mark most women's lives: birth, maturation, marriage, motherhood, death...She gracefully weaves traditional religious imagery and the common moments in our lives.""--Detroit Free Press"A significant voice...The dominant chord of Louise Erdrich's poetry is that of an instinctive acceptance of life's unknowable mysteries.""--San Francisco Chronicle
