"Absolutely stunning... Reads with the force and generational sweep of some ancient rural myth. Like the author, Annie D. is such a mesmerizing storyteller that you can almost feel the fire at your back." —The New York Times Book Review
"What emerges in these interwoven lives is a vivid evocation of place, of an inexorably changing world. With Ms.Chehak in the driver's seat, the story never veers off course." —The Wall Street Journal
"Annie D. is a treasure, a skillful, reflective storyteller with a style as gentle as a breeze." —The Chicago Tribune
"A clear, dry voice, stripped of sentiment or passion, narrates an absorbing saga of love, madness and murder...This authentically and distinctively cadenced first novel marks a promising debut." —Publisher's Weekly
"Chehak's prose provides a seamless, calm flow to a novel whose elements of love and murder ripple enticingly, fully surfacing only gently, only eventually, in the most satisfying kind of storytelling." —Booklist
