The Guest Book.jpg

“The Milton family history, rife with secrets and moral failings, including a deep-seated bigotry, is a timely tale of America itself. An enveloping and moving page-turner.”

“The Guest Book is monumental in a way that few novels dare attempt.”
The Washington Post

“… an American epic in the truest sense,…Blake humanely but grippingly explores the heart of a country whose past is based in prejudice.”
Entertainment Weekly

“Potent and mesmerizing.”
Publisher’s Weekly

“Blake deftly interrogates the many shades of prejudice and ‘the ordinary, everyday wickedness of turning away’….Blake’s brilliant and ravishing novel promises to hit big.

“The story of the Miltons engages not just with history and politics, but with the poetry of the physical world… This novel sets out to be more than a juicy family saga—it aims to depict the moral evolution of a part of American society. Its convincing characters and muscular narrative succeed on both counts.”

“A modern day classic.”
