Author Jeffrey Dunn has crafted a novel unlike anything else that I’ve read this year, and I found myself absolutely falling in love with the Peninsula and its wild, untamed beauty as I devoured this multisensory feast of a story. The craftsmanship in the wordplay and scene setting is second to none, offering not only a cinematic vision of this little microcosm of paradise but a real sense of how the ecology, culture, and attitude of the place come together to form their own personality.

Midwest Book Review
Jeffrey Dunn has created a book like no other I’ve ever experienced. Having four solid characters and seeing the world through their eyes was a unique and unexpected surprise. I liked how he used different ways to present their story. One moment you read it in a first-person stance, and the next, you find yourself immersed in poetry. To say this book provides a wealth of variety is an understatement.
