reviewsof Still Here
Great read and perspective on a tragic chapter in American history - Great historical novel that helps rewrite the revisionist history most of us learned in school. Such a tragic history. This novel does such a good job showing the cultural divide between the English settlers and the indigenous peoples and the total lack of understanding between the cultures and the inherent racism throughout. Loved the alternating point of view between two strong women from each side and the insight into the Native American way of life. —Jennifer Wasserman
This book brought many feelings of how a person can suffer and still persevere and come out to be a better person. The suffering and pain that the main character Mary Rowlandson went through was so real that I cried at many passages. I think everyone should read this book and think about their lives and how they got to where they are today. —Lena Zielke
I loved it! - Lovely prose that invited me to continue with this rich and interesting story/history. —R. Kane
It was amazing! Superbly researched, beautifully written. A very interesting and enjoyable read.

Well researched & riveting historical fiction novel. As an avid fan of historical fiction novels, I found this book hard to put down. The research behind it is extremely thorough and consequently the woven story is fully believable. If you’re interested in Colonial and Native American history, this is the novel to read!
Christine Zerillo’s book worth reading. For those who want to know about the colonial conflicts, with Native Americans, I strongly urge reading Still Here (2019) by Christine Zerillo, an excellent book on the 1675 King Philip’s War.
