Book by Penny Louise

Críticas:

"Penny writes with grace and intelligence about complex people struggling with complex emotions. But her great gift is her uncanny ability to describe what might seem indescribable - the play of light, the sound of celestial music, a quiet sense of peace." --"New York Times Book Review"

"Gorgeous writing...fresh and fully realized." --"The Washington Post"

"Penny, elevating herself to the pantheon that houses P.D. James, Ruth Rendell and Minette Walters, demonstrates an exquisite touch with characterization, plotting and artistic sensitivity.' --"Kirkus Reviews "(starred review)

"Like P. D. James, Penny shows how the tight structure of the classical mystery story can accommodate a wealth of deeply felt emotions and interpersonal drama....Top of the genre." --"Booklist"

"Penny proves again that she is one of our finest writers." --"People"

"Penny continues to amaze with each novel. Wrapped in exciting plots and domestic details, her characters are people we want to follow through their very real joys and sorrows." --"Cleveland Plain Dealer"

"All of Penny's talents combine to make the Gamache series worthy of the multiple awards bestowed upon it. But what lifts her work to the highest plane is the deep sense of humanity with which she invests her novels." --"Richmond Times-Dispatch"

"Masterful...Once again, Penny impressively balances personal courage and faith with heartbreaking choices and monstrous evil." --"Publishers Weekly "(starred) on "How the Light Gets In
