Editorial Reviews

"Watkins writes fiction as thoughtful as it is stirring. His clean, Hemingwayesque prose speaks with urgency and beauty." -Dan Cryer, Newsday"Rich in detail, chokingly tense and gorgeously romantic . . . hoists its author to the top of his class." -The San Francisco Chronicle"From the first sentence, Paul Watkins' book grabs the reader and doesn't let go . . . As changeable as the sea: beautiful and romantic and brutal and ugly, but always fascinating." -Chicago Tribune"Subtly evocative . . . Ingenious." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)
