Stephen King, take note: here’s writing to aspire to.
The richest, most effective prose takes you on a journey you’ll not soon forget in this wonderful novel. Not a purple word in the bunch, not a meretricious line to be found, nary a letter out of place. Mary E. DeMuth is the Rembrandt of novelists.
Characters and story so profound you’ll wonder why the store bookshelves today are so filled with pulp.
(And by the way, I’m not Christian or Catholic. I’m not another prattling zealot. Just an average reader.)
