Jack of Thorns is a seductive novel that weaves together elements of romance, pagan spirituality, family trauma, and magic. It’s as potent and enchanting as a flower from Laurence’s greenhouse: aromatic and beautiful, with tender thorns.

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly
Faulkner’s lustrous passages turn basic scenery into beautiful imagery.
