From the Back Cover
Set in the woods and rural areas outside Montréal, New Zealander Alice Peterson's stories sparkle with down-under merriment and Québecois charm. Her themes are simple--love, family, death--but rendered so precisely that their inner complexities shine clear, and their most improbable beauties emerge. All the Voices Cry is a romantic and whimsical debut from a not-to-be-missed young author.See all Product Description

This is one beautifully perceptive book that I wanted never to end. The subtle way of encompassing so many familiar thoughts and experiences of our days with subsequential surprising outcomes at times, plus situations that emphasise all things familiar , the little darts of shade and light , the wonderful sense of humour, an underlying theme of acceptance and courage in the face of the unpredictability of life, is a whole body/ whole mind experience. I find the stories to make one feel alive, delicious little episodes that remind us of our own experiences that are not quite the same in content, but with which we share the same range of human response, and this makes Alice Petersen's book very, very endearing.
I have no choice but to begin re-reading it, for coming to the end is somehow, not an option. Please continue your fine writings, Ms. Petersen. I heartily recommend this book for the most refreshing and uplifting read. For Quebecers, scenes of the familiar forests and lands away from the cities add yet another dimension that enhances the fine writings. Bravo to the author!
Irresistibly rich and compelling....with stories that keep you turning the pages.
A vivid tours of emotions,intelligence and poetry.
ALL THE VOICES CRY is exceptionnally absorbing and thought-provoking!
