Daren is an old friend and I couldn't be happier for him! His debut is the talk of the Fall! - Kelly, owner of Fountain
Praise for The Hidden Light of Northern Fires:
“The Hidden Light of Northern Fires is splendid—a distinctive clear-eyed perspective on a fresh corner of the Civil War. The characters are fully alive, wonderfully varied, and the narrative voice is particularly lucid, in sharp contrast with the raving bloody madness of that dark moment in American history.”
—Charles Frazier, author of Cold Mountain, winner of the 1997 National Book Award
In this fine novel, Daren Wang compellingly depicts the darkness of our country’s greatest era of strife, but he also finds courage and love. The Hidden Light of Northern Fires is a wise and timely book.
—Ron Rash, NYT bestselling author of Serena and Above The Waterfall
The Hidden Light of Northern Fires is so self-assured I’m shocked it’s a debut. Wang’s absorbing and ambitious first novel brings our history to vivid life in scenes that are by turns brutal and breathtakingly lovely. I will carry this story of love and vengeance, ruin and restoration with me for a long, long time. Read it; you will want to pass it on. --
