Quotes & Awards

  • The Washington Post Book World raves, “Waterborne is a formidable achievement, an engrossing story, masterfully told.” “... a gorgeously written, Steinbeck-like saga that is part thriller, part romance, and part social critique, replete with blissful and brutal sexuality, unbridled prejudice, and acts of both kindness and mayhem. Booklist, starred review

    " A good debut. The violence was over-the-top and unnecessary to move the story. Too much and too often graphically described. Took away from the read and what the story was about. The was a story about finding peace and redemption. "
