The Memory Garden was one of Charlie Jane Anders' favorite science fiction/fantasy books of 2014. Here's what she had to say about it:

Rickert's quiet, introspective story about three aging witches who used to be best friends is a perfect complement to Grossman's trilogy, actually — it has some of the same thoughtful exploration of magic and its consequences. But it's also impressive how much suspense Rickert manages to achieve in a book where the stakes are super low. I was on the edge of my seat reading about the precarious coming of age of a young girl who was found in a shoe box, and now lives in a house surrounded by a garden of discarded shoes.
