Blurbs:
  • "As intricately woven as the nettle shirts Eliza makes for her swan brothers, this moving book will remain with me for a long, long time." Jane Yolen
  • "Despite subtle correspondences between the two stories--including shared names, common images and mutual reflections on sibling and parental relationships--there is not enough synergy to fuse their themes or distinguish either as more than a simple parable. Nevertheless, Kerr's characters are sensitively rendered, and their plights make for a moving meditation on the ties that bind individuals to family and community." Publishers Weekly
  • "The book should appeal to fans of authors such as Mercedes Lackey." Library Journal
