Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Virgin of Small Plains will keep you up all night. Nancy Pickard’s intelligent, suspenseful storytelling never disappoints.” Julie Garwood, New York Times bestselling author of  The Ideal Man
“A hold-your-breath suspense story—sexy, warm, and poignant, with aching loss and a human desire for miracles. Pickard’s best book yet.” Margaret Maron, New York Times bestselling author of Death’s Half Acre
“Pickard draws out the truth with tantalizing suspense, while using the mystery to illuminate the ways a community would rather live in guilt and believe in miracles than give up its dark secrets.” New York Times
“Just like real life, this novel is full of joy, desire, heartbreak, tragedy—and, above all else, hope.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Cleverly planted surprises and the convincing portrait of small-town life make this a memorable read.” Publishers Weekly
