    "Eerily relevant to today's issues of social apathy and entertainment trumping truth. Worth a read. It's "afterword" is priceless."

    This author is amazing... choosing each world like a five-star chef, to tell a delicious story. Rosnay is another new favorite author for me.

    Nora escapes with her daughters to her childhood home in Maine to sort out her rocky marriage. The story is one of Irish Fairy Tales and mysteries of Nora's past. I could not put the book down!

    Very inspirational. A woman overcame great odds on her independent journey along the Pacific Crest Trail. A testimonial to one's grit, determination, and indomitable will in search of self discovery. A great read!

    Book 3 of this excellent series. I hope my spouse loves me half as much as Alan loves McKabe. Love it.

    Patron review: The book is very enjoyable. It is much better than "Casual Vacancy." It kept me guessing until the end.

    "A very interesting look about the genesis of the Mary Tyler Moore Show and the production company MTM. Lots of fun to read and many memories revived for readers of my age and yet appealing to younger people too."

    4/5 "Terrific novel that offers an engaging, sensitive take on the typical post-apocalyptic zombie adventure."
