September 13, 2017: “Virginia Woolf Down Under: The Singing Ship by Rebecca Winterer. “…her sophisticated story of the afflictions and creative transformations that shape the Pilgrim family…” A Review by Rebecca Foster “Bookish Beck“: The Singing Ship

Spring 2018: “With deeply insightful prose, Winterer runs a finger over the memories we cannot escape, but she doesn’t linger there. She touches them, then retreats back into a world we believe we can control. Touch and retreat. Touch and retreat. Building in us an urgent need to see it—understand it. Until, finally, it unfolds, naturally, brutally, but also gracefully. And it is every bit as powerful as we had expected. ”  by Heather Sharfeddin in the  Colorado Review
