AND SHE WAS by Cindy Dyson

Publisher Wm Morrow, January 2007

"...an unforgettable first novel..."
-- Library Journal  Starred Review


"Dyson delivers an original and provocative first novel."
-- Publishers Weekly

"An impressive first novel that echoes Kingstonís The Woman Warrior  and Proulxís The Shipping News ... Dysonís talent is overwhelmingly evident in her nimble balancing of tribal perspectives and those of her canny, questing protagonist."
-- Booklist

"Dyson has a distinct flair with language, and the two stories she dovetails are intricate and absorbing... Dyson has created such a mesmerizing group of female characters that itís disappointing to bid them farewell
-- Portland Tribune

"At once intimate and epic, the story is told by various voices... woven together as gracefully as an Aleut grass basket... a fascinating, well-written book unlike anything I've read in quite a while."
-- Birmingham News
