Praise for Perdita:

"Hilary Scharper deftly mines the beauty and wonder of both the human heart and nature in this haunting tale of enduring love." 

--Cathy Marie Buchanan, author of The Painted Girls.
"...this novel has accomplished a believable and adroit mix of magical realism with classical overlays. The story moves effortlessly between two love stories, one from a hundred years ago, the other contemporary, both depicted with plausibility. No mean feat."
- Roberta Rich, author of The Midwife of Venice
