"A strange and beautiful fable with shades of Deliverance, Room, and Winter's Bone." -Laline Paull, award-winning author of The Bees
"As she slashes through the mythology that restrains her, Hannah rises like a phoenix. Christopher Meades weaves a feast of paradox and surprise." -Benjamin Ludwig, author of Ginny Moon
"Compelling and provocative, Meades weaves elements of magical realism into his poignant coming-of-age tale. In Hanna, readers will find a new heroine, one who uncovers the secrets of her repressive society as she journeys toward self-discovery." -Paula Treick DeBoard, author of The Drowning Girls
"With original characters and graceful prose, Christopher Meades has created an indelible novel about faith, family and love. Your heart will soar and ache for Hanna on her thoroughly original coming-of-age journey." -Kelly Simmons, author of The Fifth of July
"The emphasis on faith, the fantastical and mythological, invites the reader to also question what elements of the story are real and which are the collective delusion of a small, removed community... an engrossing, richly layered novel." -Kirkus Reviews
