Editorial Reviews


I dove into this book and didn't come up for air until I finished the series. A perfect vacation on the Chesapeake with a colony of quirky, all too human characters who broke my heart and gave me hope as they navigated their lives. You don't have to wish you were here. You are.
Liane K. Hansen, National Public Radio PersonalityGail Priest's Annie Crow Knoll trilogy, the stories of four generations of family on Maryland's Eastern Shore, is rendered with achingly beautiful power and sensitivity. The characters, led by the strongest of intelligent women, are all finding their way forward with tremendous wisdom, tears, and courage. A literary tale of deep pain and every manner of healing, I wholeheartedly recommend all the Annie Crow Knoll titles, to our most demanding readers, and yes, to Hollywood as well. -Robert Blake Whitehill, Author/Screenwriter, The Ben Blackshaw SeriesIt's not just thepeople of Annie Crow Knoll who will keep you turning the pages of this trilogy.What sets Gail's novels apart is the strong sense of place she has created. Theupper Chesapeake Bay is a major character in each of the books. Gail's abidinglove for the Chesapeake is unmistakable. The descriptions of nature's constancyacross the seasons and the years serve as a beautiful backdrop for the story ofAnnie Crow and her family. 
-MaryScherf, Chesapeake Style Magazine
First, let me say I love the character of Annie. I love how Priest shows her growth from childhood to being forced into early adulthood with the death of her parents. I love how she becomes a part of where she grew up as if it is an extension of her. What a wonderful feeling to have about where you live. 
I also love how Annie is such a cool character. I mean really what other child would have a crow as a childhood pet. She is not a normal child by all means but that is what makes her so special.  I also love how Annie manages to maintain a friendship from childhood into adulthood. 
If you are looking for a great book to read, I would highly recommend this book.
