CARRY ME is “another meditation on history and destiny . . . that make[s] the past feel stunningly close at hand.” —Megan O’Grady, Vogue
“This ambitious novel provides a panoramic view of a continent and a microscopic view of two individuals hovering precariously between the two world wars . . . . Vividly imagined . . . . Moving seamlessly back and forth between times and countries, Behrens (The O’Briens, 2012) paints a stunningly intimate portrait in wide, universal strokes.” —Margaret Flanagan, Booklist
"Behrens . . . revitalizes the war epic, substituting grand panoramas with realistic settings and great acts of heroism with small yet powerful acts of compassion . . . " —Publishers Weekly
