|Editorial Review||"A Riveting Literary Thriller.... Donoghue Brilliantly Conjures The Chaos Of A Boomtown In The Grip Of Both A Heat Wave And A Smallpox Epidemic; Her Cast Of Colorful Lowlifes Includes The Freeloading Arthur And His Sycophantic Best Friend, Ernest. But It's Blanche And Jenny Who Hold Our Attention.... Frog Music Begins With A Mystery: Who Killed Jenny? But It Enthralls With Two Other Questions: Who Was Jenny? Who Will Blanche Become?"―Karen Holt, O, The Oprah Magazine "Frog Music...[Brings] To Steamy Life The Unresolved So-Called San Miguel Mystery.... Donoghue Front-Loads The Drama.... She Captures San Francisco In All Its Melting-Pot, Fishy-Smelling Glory, And Weaves In Authentic Details About Smallpox Outbreaks, Race Riots, And OrphanAges. Jenny Bonnet Is An Incendiary Character Pulled Directly From The History Books.... Her Extraordinary Life Gives Donoghue's Novel Contemporary Resonance."―Elyse Moody, Elle "More Fine Work From One Of Popular Fiction's Most Talented Practitioners.... Donoghue's Vivid Rendering Of Gilded Age San Francisco Is Notable For Her Atmospheric Use Of Popular Songs And Slang In Blanche's Native French, But The Book's Emotional Punch Comes From Its Portrait Of A Woman Growing Into Self-Respect As She Takes Responsibility For The Infant Life She's Created."―Kirkus Reviews|
