The characters are beautifully drawn, the setting beautifully original, magical and seductive and the language is exquisite . . . The reader who invests the time to get to know the quirky and beautiful Persimmon, Epiphany, Rose and the rest, will be rewarded and might even discover – or rediscover – a love for the beauty of language. Judges comments, NSW Premiers Literary Awards, 2011The Three Loves of Persimmon is whimsical, wise and outrageously charming. While influenced by the fables of Hans Christian Andersen and Oscar Wilde, Cassandra Golds weaves her own tale with singular poise and skill. Judges Comments, Prime Ministers Literary Awards, 2011These two narratives, both drawn so beautifully and so enchantingly, come together in a surprising, utterly delightful manner, and its all but impossible not to be charmed by the result, which is moving, illuminating, and frankly quite lovely. Golds has an exquisite sense of the fairytale genre, and she evokes every essential element in a way that is absolutely pitch perfect . . . Her writing is nimble and elegant, and at times gorgeously lyrical . . . Her characters are . . . drawn with rich subtlety and allusive effect . . . This is a beautiful, affecting tale of the need to challenge the status quo, question norms, address binaries and bigotries, and to remain unwavering on those things that are truly important to oneself and ones identity. Its a book that . . . opens itself up to reveal an astonishing depth of thought and internal richness. Stephanie Campisi, Read in a single sittingAn achingly beautiful book.
