Best of 2012, Suspense Magazine
"A truly enjoyable read. Perfect for a cozy evening snuggling under a blanket, blocking out the world. The sequences of Silvia's recollections into the past with her strong willed, born ahead of her time grandmother, the jobs she has held, and lost as it were, are nothing short of brilliant." Chapters and Chats Book Reviews
"I found myself thinking about the characters long after I finished this, so I'm happy to hear there is a sequel coming up. It makes one proud of the human spirit, what it can overcome when it is motivated by love to do so. My mother was a "Silvia" in her lifetime, and for the same reason, so the message here mattered to me. Thanks to this author for giving us that insight without dragging it out into a long, dismal and depressing novel." Amazon Vine Review
"The author weaves a tale that is a moving and realistic portrayal of a dysfunctional family with enough drama and humorous family situations that will keep the reader engaged and entertained, while providing a witty sense of humor and subtle messages of life lessons to extend the olive branch and learn to live, love and forgive." Jersey Girl Book Reviews
"Grace's intimate knowledge of her subject shows in her frank and open style of writing, which invites the reader into the lives of the Greco family, as though they were long lost friends and therefore there is no need to stand on ceremony, or pretend that things are not just as they are. An amazingly perceptive, cleanly written and well told story, marks Grace Mattioli's debut novel." fiction-books.biz Book Reviews
"The author did a great job of showing what Silvia was experiencing as she tried to reunite the members of her hot-headed Italian family." Bella Online: The Voice of Women
