— The Visionist

Attractive example of gold foil on acetate.

The New York Times Book Review – Amber Dermont


“…transfixing debut novel…Urquhart has created a world rich in detail and vibrant in its historical dimensions…Urquhart captures how the Shakers live, dance, dine, garden, heal and worship, but she also has a genuine feel for her characters’ longings and devotion. She knows her black hellebore from her white poppies and writes beautifully about the spirituality of the natural world…Like Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead and Edward P. Jones’s The Known World, The Visionist aspires to illuminate our understanding of faith, resilience, shame and forgiveness.”
