Author Katherine Catmull elegantly summons a fairy-tale timelessness for this YA story of teen anxieties, fairies, and creativity
Arts Review  January 21, 2016, by Rosalind Faires
"...With The Radiant Road, Katherine Catmull elegantly summons that same fairy-tale timelessness, that gentle déjà vu that maybe we heard this tale as a bedtime story once when we were very, very small even when we know we are reading it for the first time. The second novel by this award-winning Austin stage actor – the follow-up to her enchanting Summer and Bird – follows the motherless, displaced Clare, a girl on the precipice of her teenage years, as she travels to Ireland with her father to return to the house she was born in – inside of which grows a tree that her mother's family has had guardianship of for generations..."

Film Review  May 10, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Filmed by Taiwanese cinematographer Mark Ping Bing Lee (In the Mood for Love, Flowers of Shanghai), Renoir sets its palette with its opening shot. A flame-haired young woman in a bright ochre outfit rides a bicycle through the countryside of the French Riviera in 1915, the moving camera capturing all the sun-dappled interplay of light and color as she weaves along the road..."
