*Starred Review* " Powerful, harrowing, and deeply unsettling. It keeps you reading as your blood pressure mounts...proceeds like a noose gradually tightening...stark, beautiful, sad and frankly terrifying...finely crafted, with careful attention to characterization, style, and pacing. It succeeds on every level." --Quill & Quire September 1, 2011
"Powerful, harrowing, and deeply unsettling. It keeps you reading as your blood pressure mounts... proceeds like a noose gradually tightening... stark, beautiful, sad and frankly terrifying... finely crafted, with careful attention to characterization, style, and pacing. It succeeds on every level." -- The Quill & Quire
"Absorbing, strikingly-written, and subtly-honed . . . a page-turner!" -- Gordon Hauptfleisch
"Full of remarkable moments . . . a level of detail that puts us in the beating hearts of imperiled souls . . . simple, brave, powerful scenes, skillfully written with an anger no less effective for being tempered - scenes that sit with the soul long after the book is closed." -- Alan Cuymn, The Globe & Mail
Named as one of the "Very Best Books of 2011" by The Globe & Mail and the Boston Globe.
"Thrilling . . . unflinching . . . unforgettable. Davis makes us care about her characters . . . imaginatively transformed by exquisite prose. Her moral fiction calls us to empathize, read, imagine and hear. This is a story of getting lost in the woods, of meeting the monster and getting out alive." -- Jean Randich, Truthdig.com
"I'll never forget this book, the sunning power of the descriptions, the attention to detail, the riveting plot, the fully-realized characters--this is storytelling at its very best." -- Duff Brenna, author of The Book of Mamie, The Holy Book of the Beard, Too Cool
"From the first chapter of OUR DAILY BREAD...I was hooked--by the characters, by the flow, by the clean, rhythmic prose." -- Thomas E. Kennedy, author of The Copenhagen Quartet
"Rendered with gorgeous prose, this compact, fast-moving novel features an astonishing range of tones, from hope to heartbreak, from black humor to white-knuckle terror." -- Dexter Palmer, author of The Dream of Perpetual MotionSee all Product Description
