Colleen Kelly Warren"St. Louis Post-Dispatch"A clear-eyed, poignant story of a family in crisis.

Friedman"Entertainment Weekly"A portrait of parenthood, with all its wild loves and anguished fears...compulsively readable. Susie Linfield"Los Angeles Times"With almost perfect pitch, Robinson captures the clash of worldviews between adults and young children. Adam Begley"People Magazine"Robinson writes with slow-motion precision. She registers every last gesture and nuance and gets it all right. Francine Prose"Newsday"Robinson's impressive new novel grows on you...so slowly you discover how truly ambitious and tough its intentions are. Bath Brophy"USA Today"Compelling...after reading this exceptional novel, it may be hard to think about remarriage without this book coming to mind. Diana Postlethwaite"The New York Times Book Review"Often compared to John Cheerer...but Robinson's latest novel made me think of an earlier literary forebear, Henry James. Carol Ratelle Leach"Minneapolis Star Tribune"Nearly perfect prose...there isn't an awkward phrase or false note in the entire work, Robinson depicts this family's struggle to survive with unerring intelligence and grace. Susan Goodman"The Washington Post Book World"Robinson's strength as a novelist rests in her ability to create the texture of life...."This Is My Daughter" shows us that it is -- as Robinson writes -- brave to be independentand braver still to engage.
