Editorial Reviews

"He writes with such compassion, clarity, and humour that it is impossible not to become engrossed in the lives of his people. Cumyn is a consummate craftsman who has built a home you’ll move right into and leave only reluctantly."

— <i>Fiddlehead</i>

"Between Families and the Sky […] is a captivating novel, the work of an insidiously good writer, one who seems to pull finely pitched sentences from clear air. […] It would be a failure to not treasure, praise, this book."

— <i>Chronicle-Herald</i>
