"A compellingly readable, funny, wry, ultimately heartbreaking saga of womanhood, motherhood and the things we do to humor the ones we love the most. Best yet, it's gorgeously written. I'll say that again: gorgeously.... O'Reilly's a lovely writer of poignant scenes and funny bits of dialogue, and she has a knack like few writers do for capturing the shimmering, stressful moments that make mothering the unique challenge and burden and utter exaltation that it is.... Why did O'Reilly move, crate and barrel, to the country? The answer, it turns out, looks like love. Did she stay? You'll have to read the ending--brave, moving, revelatory--to know for sure."
"A thoughtful, lyrical writer...O'Reilly walks a fine line here with great skill."
"Minneapolis Star-Tribune," August 15, 2008
"A thoughtful, lyrical writer... O'Reilly walks a fine line here with great skill."
Susan Barnett, host of NPR's "51%"
"A wry and engaging look at what happens when an urban loving writer/journalist leaves it all behind so her husband can fulfill his dream of life as a country squire. O'Reilly has the sass of Carrie Bradshaw with kids... endearing, irreverent and neurotic. She's a woman you just know you'd like."
