. . . a gripping, heart-rending family saga that explores the darkest side of human nature— and the incontrovertible, uplifting power of hope, ​spans more than fifty years, from the Ukranian pogroms in the 1920's to a chaotic Hippie Household in the late 1970's. Vividly drawn and breathtakingly insightful, this story is a beautiful, heartbreaking exploration of human nature at its worst and its best.


 . . . "Yates shows much skill in description, characterization, and dialogue, and she’s insightful about the mental state of abused children, as when Jules learns to compartmentalize: “I began to see my life in parts. When something bad, or weird, or crazy happened, like my father having a gun and threatening my mother, I’d say to myself: This is the part where my father points a gun at my mother’s head. Yates vividly evokes time and place, whether it’s Samuel’s childhood among the apple orchards in Ukraine, the bleakness of a Cape Cod tourist town in winter or Wendy’s psychedelic decorating style. Well-written." -Kirkus Reviews
