Inscribed by Welch on the half title page. "This history-shadowed story, which truly reads like a song from the divided heart of the Old World and the New, is a consummate leap of imagination by a sure-handed and wise writer. James Welch, who has long been one of our finest American voices, here reaches the goal of all great literature: to transform words into worlds."
