“I am in awe of books like Erin Vincent’s. More than just a story of unbearable loss, it is a story of survival, it is a story about being orphaned and terrified, and it is amazing that not only did Erin Vincent carry on–but she became a writer and shares her story with us, elegant, simple, heartbreaking.” – A.M. Homes, author
