An Uncertain Age is a fascinating work, at once a mystery that transforms itself by degrees into a pilgrimage, and an unlikely love story that deepens into transforming mystery. Ulrica Hume is literate, smart, painfully honest, and often slyly, redemptively funny, and she has suffused her story with the rare urgency of a genuine spiritual quest.
~Tim Farrington, author of The Monk Downstairs

A rich and complex tapestry, a spiritual and literary mystery, this novel turns the reader into a seeker. The quest that unfolds is rewarding in multiple dimensions, beginning with the sheer delight of its beautifully crafted sentences. And while the novel’s sophisticated layers of meaning engaged my adult mind, its wildly adventurous plot, its vivid descriptions of far-away places, and its cast of wonderfully eccentric characters drew me in to an experience of reading that I haven’t had since I was a child.
~Noelle Oxenhandler, author of The Wishing Year: A House, A Man, My Soul
