Review

Praise for the Novels of Irene Hunt

“A deeply affecting, affirmative story.”—Booklist

“A powerfully moving story.”—Chicago Daily News

“An intriguing and beautifully written book, a prize to those who take the time to read it, whatever their ages.”—The New York Times

“This is a beautifully written book, filled with bloodshed, hate, and tears, but also with love, loyalty, and compassion, with unforgettable characters, and with ideas and implications that have meaning for young people today.”—Chicago Tribune

About the Author

Her second novel, Up a Road Slowly, was awarded the Newberry Medal in 1966. Ms. Hunt was born in southern Illinois and received degrees from the University of Illinois and the University of Colorado. For many years she taught in the public schools of northern Illinois, and later taught psychology at the University of South Dakota. She died in 2001.
