“Big city girl marries a small town guy—that story. But never more engagingly told than in Hundred Miles to Nowhere. It’s full of humor, heart, and in the end proves that love always wins. Women will love this book, and I did, too.” ~ Will Weaver, author of Sweet Land and The Last Hunter: An American Family Album
“An absolutely stunning debut. Brilliant, breathtaking and hopeful. Korenne is the ideal storyteller: part enchantress, part dogged reporter, wise, studious, generous. Her book is a superbly crafted journey into the unexpected riches of the rural American wilderness, and of the heart.” ~ Josh Axelrad, author of the memoir Repeat Until Rich: A Professional Card Counter’s Chronicle of the Blackjack Wars
“I’m a romantic, but even I would have given poor odds to a romance between a man and a woman with different religions, different careers, different interests and — most important — different relationships to the Minnesota wilderness. But no matter that one’s a native outdoorsman, the other a transplanted Jewish Philadelphian/New Yorker singer-songwriter! “Hundred Miles to Nowhere” makes you believe in the power of love, and of literature.” ~ Mark Oppenheimer, author of Wisenheimer: A Childhood Subject to Debate
” Korenne’s memoir chronicles her odyssey from New York to New York Mills with lush texture, exquisite description, and engaging storytelling. With unflinching candor, Korenne leads us on a thoroughly enjoyable romp through her two worlds.” ~ Jerry Mevissen, author of Good Shepherd
“Elisa Korenne has written an action-packed, heart-driven page turner. Each line is crafted with the focus and care of the song lyrics for which she has become known. You will want to slowly savor the reading of it, enjoying the rich nuances of Korenne’s words and brilliant storytelling. Hundred Miles to Nowhere is a narrative tale of self-discovery in which preconceived notions of identity are turned sideways, and we eventually arrive at a place where we come to believe that with a little patience and humility, love truly is enough!” ~ Joe Jencks, international touring performer, songwriter, entertainer, educator, and co-founder of musical group Brother Sun.
