Review:

“Erdrich is a talented storyteller. She has created a world, fictional but real: absorbing, funny, serious, and convincingly human.” (New York Times Book Review on The Game of Silence)

“Readers who loved Omakayas and her family in The Birchbark House have ample reason to rejoice in this beautifully constructed sequel.” (Kirkus (starred review) on The Game of Silence)

“Readers will want to follow this family for many seasons to come.” (Publishers Weekly on The Birchbark House)

“Charming, suspenseful, and funny, and always bursting with life.” (Kirkus Reviews on The Birchbark House)

“The struggle to survive provides the exciting action in this sequel to The Birchbark House (1999) and The Game of Silence (2005), which takes place in 1852. What is left unspoken is as powerful as the story told.” (Booklist (starred review))

“The novel reinforces the strength and importance of family.” (KLIATT (starred review))

“Charming and enlightening.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“The events in this installment will both delight and appall readers.” (School Library Journal (starred review))
