Heart Spring Mountain (MacArthur) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
(Starred review) [N]uanced, poetic, and evocative; MacArthur empathetically depicts each of her characters in their wounded but hopeful glory.
Publishers Weekly

Lyrical and faintly political (but never pedantic), Heart Spring Mountain is a timely wonder of a debut.
Shelf Awareness

Powerful.… MacArthur demonstrates a commanding ability to weave meaning from separate narrative threads, exploring how the impact of a person’s choices can echo through generations, even as a storm washes the past away.

[O]ccasionally pockmarked with only-in-a-novel dialogue and actions ("Find me!" Vale cries after flinging her clothes off in a rainstorm). But MacArthur ably sustains multiple narrative threads and voices.… A fecund and contemplative feminist family saga.
