Review

Praise for Amanda Skenandore
and Between Earth and Sky

"Gripping and beautifully written, Between Earth and Sky tugs at the heart with its dynamic heroine and unique cast of characters. Though this novel brings alive two historical American eras and settings, the story is achingly modern, universal and important."
--Karen Harper, New York Times bestselling author of The It Girls

"Intensely emotional. . . . Skenandore's deeply introspective and moving novel will appeal to readers of American history, particularly those interested in the dynamics behind the misguided efforts of white people to better the lives Native American by forcing them to adopt white cultural mores."
--Publishers Weekly

"A masterfully written novel about the heart-wrenching clash of two American cultures . . . a fresh and astonishing debut."
--V.S. Alexander, author of The Magdalen Girls and The Taster

"By describing its costs in human terms, the author shapes tension between whites and Native Americans into a touching story. The title of Skenandore's debut could refer to reality and dreams, or to love and betrayal; all are present in this highly original novel."
--Booklist

"A heartbreaking story about the destructive legacy of the forced assimilation of Native American children. Historical fiction readers and book discussion groups will find much to ponder here."
--Library Journal

"At its heart, this luminous book tells a Romeo and Juliet story. But Skenandore's book is so much more than a simple romance. This novel examines the complex relationship between love and loss, culture and conquest, annihilation and assimilation."
--Historical Novel Society --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book I've Read All Summer
Reviewed in the United States on 24 August 2019
I am absolutely smitten with the main character, Effie. Smart, competent, awkward, and head strong she sped me through the pages until I had devoured the entire book. I was fascinated by descriptions of early embalming while New Orleans of 1875 burst to life; the beauty and gaiety of the city, the excited, hopeful disposition the freedmen, and the dark stains of its past as well as the looming shadows of its future. I love how this author exposes us to pieces of our American past that have been (purposefully) overlooked. She holds our hand as she unearths ugly truths that have so much relevance to our nation today. This book was a perfect combination of entertaining and enlightening, and I highly recommend it!
