"Like sitting in a parlor and catching up on the trials and tragedies of the reader's own extended Southern family."
- Kirkus Review
From the Back Cover
"A wise and brilliantly evocative Southern tale enhanced by Claire Fullerton's inimitable wit. Indulge in this eloquent exploration of colorful and complex family dynamics."
Creative Director of Southern Writers Magazine
"Set against the backdrop of a complicated 1970s South - one both forward-looking and still in love with the past - and seen through the eyes of a Minnesota girl struggling to flourish in Memphis society, 'Mourning Dove' is the story of two unforgettable siblings with a bond so strong even death can't break it. Claire Fullerton has given us a wise, relatable narrator in Millie. Like a trusted friend, she guides us through the confounding tale of her dazzling brother Finley, their beguiling mother Posey, and a town where shiny surfaces often belie reality. Like those surfaces, Fullerton's prose sparkles even as she leads us into dark places, posing profound questions without any easy answers."
Editor, Lowcountry Weekly
Former Assistant Editor of Pat Conroy
"Claire Fullerton knows how to get a voice going. I'm talking distinctive, authoritative, original as all get out. Narrator Millie Crossan will grab you by your high-ball-holding hand and set you down in privileged Memphis with her family and not let you go. Get ready for the Crossan layers to be peeled back and universal struggles exposed."
Author of One Good Mama Bone
"Every sentence tells a complete story in and of itself. A rare accomplishment by any writer! What an excellent novel -- put it on your Must Read List for 2018! Millie tells the story of her brother Finley, life in the South and the anguish and joy of growing up in an eclectic and ever-changing household with rare poetic prose. Such a wonderful book."
Valerie MacEwan, The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature
"In Mourning Dove, Claire Fullerton deftly weaves the story of a Memphis family into a fine fabric laden with delicious intricacy and heart. A true Southern storyteller."
--Laura Lane McNeal, Bestselling author of DOLLBABY
