Dear Reader,

I wrote ELSEY COME HOME because I wanted to do an extremely honest  portrayal of a woman struggling with the expectations placed on her to be an "extraordinary" mother and to also have an extraordinary career. 

My novel explores what happens when the pressure on women becomes too much. Oprah Magazine picked ELSEY COME HOME for its "Top Ten Books," and Judy Blume writes of the book, "I loved ELSEY COME HOME. The exotic setting, the characters Elsey meets along the way — and the writing, spare and lovely. What more can I say — perfect."

The Library Journal called the novel a "Best Bet," and the Publishers  Weekly's Starred Review writes, "it's an excellent novel, asking probing questions about motherhood and careers and marriage."

Thank you,
