On The Big Bang Symphony:"A well-balanced humdinger of a story keeps this unusual novel hurtling along like a skidoo on the ice." -- Kirkus Reviews On Sweat: "In an outstanding novella and...rich and satisfying stories, Bledsoe shows herself to be a smart and savvy writer.... In this tender work, she perfectly evokes the healing power of the outdoors." --Publishers Weekly
