“It is a gift to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary, to reveal the lives we see unfolding every day, and add a charm and warmth to them that those of us who move around them sometimes forget to notice. But this is what Suzanne Strempek Shea
does for her readers.”
– Ann Hood
“I love this book!”
– Katie Couric, on Suzanne’s debut novel,

“She’s what Amy Tan is to Chinese Americans, Isaac Bashevis Singer to the Jews, Jimmy Breslin to the Irish, Mario Puzo to Italians, Terry MacMillan
to African-Americans.”
– Margaret Carlin of Rocky Mountain News
“This is one of those books that changes your life forever. I am deeply grateful that
I got a chance to read it, and I will recommend it to everyone I know.”
– Anita Shreve, on Songs From a Lead-Lined Room
