Editorial Reviews

“The Cape Ann is the first-person story of a child’s loss of innocence, of a growing awareness of just how complex life can be.”—Washington Post Book World“The childish narrator is sweet and touching, without being sappy, and we believe her every recollection of life in a small Minnesota town at the end of the Depression.”—New York Times Book Review   “Sullivan has written a fascinating, original novel.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune“Funny, sensible, at times achingly sad … Sullivan leads us into the heart of an American childhood.”—Chicago Tribune
