"Owen's first novel, 1992's Littlejohn, was a subtle, pleasant surprise. His second is equally fine; a multigenerational saga that echoes the plot of its predecessor but also resonates with imagery invoking the spiritual tradition of such Southern writers as Faulkner and Flannery O'Connor. This wise, warm and deeply satisfying story should further brighten his rising star". -- Publishers Weekly
