“Briscoe depicts this world of few rules and many consequences with honesty and with compassion. In lucid, observant prose, she captures the messiness of family and, crushingly, the consequences of desire.” ―Publishers Weekly
“Absorbing... You is deliciously reminiscent of the haunting tales of the Brontes, Blackmoore and Hardy.” ―Baltimore Sun
“Briscoe... summons the romance of the moors and offers a devastating depiction of the 'carefree' '70s.” ―Booklist
