PRAISE FOR STAND THE STORM: "Passionate, daramatic, and uplifting....Stand the Storm reads like a great nineteenth-century page-turner."―Gail Buckley, Washington Post Book World
"An evocative, historically rich book that brings the turbulent Civil War period alive."―Time
"An intense and memorable journey....Breena Clarke uses deceptively simple language to pack an insightful, powerful punch."―Robin Vidimos, Denver Post
PRAISE FOR RIVER, CROSS MY HEART: "A genuine masterpiece....Full of grace and beauty and profound insights....It bears traces of Eudora Welty's charm and Toni Morrison's passion."―Michael Shelden, Baltimore Sun
"A compelling novel...Inspired by tales her parents told her about growing up in the 1920s, Clarke brings to life a whole neighborhood of vivid personalities, writing blacks back into Georgetown's history."―Denise Kersten, USA Today
"Seldom do I find a novel that I can recommend to everyone. My aunt likes a book to be both sad and funny. My mother-in-law hates violence and sex. Friends like lyricism and depth of theme. Everyone wants a good story. I'm delighted to say that River, Cross My Heart fills the bill in all these respects."―Sandra Scofield, Chicago Tribune

Clarke weaves her book lovingly with a kind of omniscient voice that speaks in the Russell's Knob accent. It's comforting to hear it. What's meant to be beautiful (descriptions of Dossie's bird calling) is definitely so, and what's meant to be ugly--the violence when it happens--is rendered in such a clear, matter of fact way that the results are heartbreaking. Reading this book was an unforgettable experience.
