"In Harvest, Catherine Landis has given the reader a powerful archetypal story of the inherent connection of the human spirit, the land which supports it, and the devastation which occurs when that tenuous thread is broken. Set in east Tennessee over a period of four generations, the novel sensitively explores the losses, reconciliation, and sacrifice of one family in a voice that rings completely true from beginning to end."
-Jeanne Ray, author of Julie and Romeo
"Harvest is an important book, a beautiful American story, and a testament to the power of the land. Catherine Landis's writing is so self-assured it stands in neat rows like a garden, but is incredibly organic at the same time, natural enough to burst forth and envelop the reader with its moving, graceful, and deceptively quiet story. Filled with characters as vivid as the Tennessee landscape Landis so remarkably presents to us, Harvest is a book that will stay with me for a long time."
-Silas House, author of A Parchment of Leaves
"Harvest is a vivid story of a time and a place, of land and lives in transition. It is a story of drastic, irreversible but sometimes liberating change. The voices and faces will haunt you long after you put the book down."
- Robert Morgan, author of Brave Enemies
"A moving story, which subtly links the life of the heart and the life of the land. Leda is the heroine readers are looking for -- unlikely, and yet believable to the end."
-Melany Neilson, author of The Persia Café
"Harvest is a beautifully written novel full of characters who come alive with a stunning vividness. Catherine Landis is a writer of rare talent, and Harvest secures her place as an important voice in contemporary fiction."
- Ron Rash, author of One Foot in Eden
"An ambitious novel that spans three generations of rural American life, and laments how much we've lost to progress in a clear, honest language that befits Landis's conflicted East Tennessee characters." -Marlin Barton, author of A Broken Thing
