“Rendered with intense depth of feeling, Neecey’s Lullaby evokes Morrison’s The Bluest Eye with its haunting prose, rich characters, and timely message of hope and redemption. A beautiful novel that reminds us how love survives in the human heart despite years of physical and emotional pain.” —Heather Neff, author of Haarlem
