"Eloquent, imaginative. . . . The creativity and vigor that made A Midwife's Tale an instant classic are also presenthere."
"With The Age of Homespun,Ulrich has truly outdone herself."
--The New York Times Book Review
"Remarkable . . .Ulrich performs like a virtuoso, conjuring up the small details she then weaves into her larger stories. . . . She dazzles."
"Lively and captivating. . . .Ulrich quilts a new narrative, one that both probes and explodes the myths surrounding the idealized era of 'homespun.'"
