Past Review Highlights:
"This remarkably talented author writes in a refined, understated prose that captures the spontaneity of adolescent dialogue in an eloquent, often brilliant narrative."
--The New York Times Book Review
"Light and lovely....full of warmth and insight...a valentine to the
transformative power of art."
"A superbly crafted
novel of two women who discover each other. A combination romance, folk
tale, humor novel, and poignant reflection on destiny. A unique and
enthralling reading experience from cover to cover."
"Tara, who calls
herself 'TB like the disease,' is about to have her dream wedding,
complete with roast beef, emerald high heels, 'slutty' silver eye shadow,
and red pantyhose beneath a thin white bridal gown. But the beautiful old
White Cliffs restaurant, her cherished venue for the event, burns to the
ground. Shattered, she leaves town with a note to her parents to tell her
fiance, Tommy, that she is calling the whole thing off, which is not a bad
idea, since it already crossed her mind that what she really wanted was a
wedding, not a marriage. Meanwhile the local psychic, Signora Guida
Santucci, equally devastated by the fire (why hadn't she foreseen in?)
refuses other job offers but agrees to help Tara's parents locate
her...Guida finds her, and both women are surprised by their mutual
attraction. But can they find true love and happiness? Many will want to
find out in a novel this fresh and engaging."
