“Tense and brooding…like (The) Grapes of Wrath, only creepier and with a lot more murder…a delightfully dark read.” – Margaret Adelle, booktuber

“Gritty, Real, Fiction…Schleicher thrusts readers deep into the early part of the twentieth century, with real people living real lives and experiencing a thrilling, suspenseful tale….the rising conflict and relationships between characters reminded me of one of the classics I read in high school, but this time, I was reading it for pleasure!” – C. D. Tavenor, author and co-founder of Two Doctors Media

“A page-turner with a dark slant, morally gray characters who were flawed yet likable, realistic and multi-faceted with certain twists I didn’t see coming.” – Jenna Moquin, author 

“The Great Depression has been a setting for many novels…it’s a fascinating period brought to life in this moody, dark novel. This is a terrific read that won’t disappoint.” – John Greco, author/photographer

“A good, enthralling historical suspense/thriller…Schleicher delves deep inside his characters. He’s not afraid to have unlikable but realistic people in his story…(and) excels at portraying children.” – Meredith Rankin, writer and book blogger
