"Dora Dueck’s work is immensely satisfying and dazzling in a way that you often don’t find in fiction today. She takes the time to delve deeply into the souls of the people she writes about, to find the perfect word, phrase, cadence, that will bring to life their journeys toward peace and beauty. Dora is a sage and marvellous writer, and one of Manitoba’s best kept secrets."
—Sandra Birdsell, author of The Russländer
