This is my favorite of the author's novels. The main character moves through life with a silence worthy of attention, which she finally receives from the voices of the dead.

I think Reynolds' greatest writing talent is her ability to create unforgettable characters. Finch, the main character in this book, is no exception. She's strong-willed, she's sympathetic, she's brave to do all she must do in the face of mockery. Highly recommended.

Sheri Reyonolds is not for everyone,but I for one adore her books.Her subject matter is a little unusual,but her style is wonderful. Just like "The Rapture of Canaan" I couldn't put it down.

This book seems like it would be decent, but we had a recent death in the family and the whole "talking to dead people in the graveyard" thing was just not something I could handle emotionally at this time. I only read the first chapter.

Excellent read! I am now a diehard Sheri Reynolds fan! Almost as good as her two other books, "Rapture of Canaan" and "Bitteroot Landing." The author's character development is incredible! You live in their world and resent coming back to reality!

I lvoe Finch!! What a great book. I just found it this week at the library and although it's not the type of book I normally read (not a mystery or thriller), something about it caught my attention. Thank goodness! I really loved this character and even Leonard, in all his stumbling, bumbling good-heartedness.

This book was very odd in context but still great. I read it fairly quickly, and you really didn't want to put it down. There are a few interesting surprises in there.
