Editorial Reviews

Review

"What is remembered; what is missed; what will never be again . . . all these are addressed with the tenderness of a wise observer whose heart is large enough, kind enough, to embrace them all without judgment. . . . intense and finely crafted . . . . her stories reach into the hidden places of the heart and break them open to healing light, offering a touch of grace and hope of reconciliation." --Foreword Reviews (starred review)

"The stories center on the complexity of family relationships with such empathy and humanity that novelist Steve Yarbrough called the book 'nothing short of magnificent.' ... Summie grounds readers in reality just as they become lost in her beautiful prose.... To Lay to Rest Our Ghosts does not shy from life s hardest moments, but its sorrow is not gratuitous. Summie is a writer who approaches life as a whole, both good and bad, rooted in history and place, and her elegant prose shines in this collection." --Chapter 16.org

"It's been a long time since I read a collection of stories that amazed me from cover to cover, but that's what Caitlin Summie's To Lay to Rest Our Ghosts did. With the grace and elegance of a master, Summie lays bare our vulnerabilities and desires and hopes in equal measure. The result is one stunning story after another, each as lovely and heartfelt as the one before. If you're a fan of Grace Paley or Ann Beattie or Tobias Wolfe, you ll surely find something to love in these pages." --Peter Geye, author of Wintering
