Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

In a rich feast for the senses---both literary and culinary. Publishers Weekly Starred Review
“Deeply moving and intensely meaningful, Reay’s latest gives readers an intimate look into the lives of sisters. Elizabeth’s character is raw and real—her desire to live a meaningful life, yet her authentic fear of rejection will help everyone identify closely with her journey. Delicious descriptions of food and the closeness that provides to others gives the novel even more depth.” RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars)
“In a rich feast for the senses—both literary and culinary…Reay treats readers to a banquet of flavors, aromas, and textures that foodies will appreciate, and clever references to literature add nuances sure to delight bibliophiles. The relatable, very real characters, however, are what will keep readers clamoring for more from this talented author.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Reay’s second Jane Austen-inspired tale is a layered and nuanced story of faith and hope, enriched by complex but relatable characters. Recommended for lovers of character-driven women’s fiction.” Library Journal
“Narrator Hillary Huber successfully projects the tenuous relationship between the sisters, the story’s pervading sense of loss, and the crisis Lizzy is going through at work and at home. Huber also portrays Lizzy’s growth as she becomes more forgiving and more open to building a new future with her family. A tender story for listeners looking for a quiet novel about family.” AudioFile
