Review quote

Leavitt's writing is so fluid, her characters so well realized, I found myself reading nearly until the sun came up. When I was finished I felt as though I had made a new friend, and had stayed up all night listening to her stories.--Pam Houston, author of Cowboys are My Weakness and A Little More About Me "Leavitt's writing is so fluid, her characters so well realized, I found myself reading nearly until the sun came up.
