"In her debut novel, Sharon Koho plunges with passion into what seems at first a heartthrob romance. . . . The notion does not last long. As ripples on the pond distort reality, Sharon reshapes our perceptions of classic romance and bids us enter a mysterious matrix of ghosts, gold, and a gust of gothic. It's a trip worth taking." –Kieth Merrill, filmmaker
"Koho's masterfully superintended work presents engaging, vivid glimpses into what is and what might have been or could be. Filled with enough artifice, intrigue, and wonderment to keep the reader engaged." –Molly Martin, Molly Martin's Reviews
"Written from a pure heart, this book is like a breath of fresh air." –Betty P. Tuner, M.S., Ed. D.
