"The Bird Sisters is truly something to crow about. Rasmussen's obvious intimacy with her characters...breathes such life into them, each voice is perfectly defined, whether her characters speak as teenager or septuagenarians."—St. Louis magazine

"The Bird Sisters is in no way imitative, it has the sturdy literary bones of pastoral masterworks such as Jane Smiley's A Thousand Acres and Marilynne Robinson's Housekeeping."—St. Louis-Post Dispatch

"A magical debut, original and poignant, lovely and moving. The Bird Sisters evokes the richly imaginative joys of childhood and the throat-aching betrayals and loyalties of being an adult. I absolutely loved The Bird Sisters and will carry Milly and Twiss with me as if in a locket for a long, long time."—Jenna Blum, bestselling author of Those Who Save Us

"What a book -- unique, beautifully written, vivid and heartbreaking. I loved it. With evocative and finely wrought prose, Rebecca Rasmussen has crafted a moving story that explores the fierce bonds, wounds, and tender complexities of the human heart. The Bird Sisters is a magical debut."—Beth Hoffman, bestselling author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt
