Big Thanks to Booklist

Rather delicious review of THE MOMENT OF TRUTH from the ever so important Booklist who service the libraries throughout the US. McNicholl’s moving novel, rich in emotion and written with style and precision (the bullfighting scenes have the crisp clarity of Hemingway), strikes a fine balance between love story and historical adventure. Though he sets the book in another place and time and evokes both vividly, McNicholl uses the sensibilities of his heroine to give the story a very modern-seeming immediacy. This pairs well with Malcolm Brooks’ Painted Horses.” —Booklist
