Praise for Kathryn Shay's novels "Kathryn Shay writes some of the cleanest prose around, and it's my belief she'd make the Yellow Pages sound interesting if the phone company put her on staff. And Ms. Shay knows her way around a steamy love scene." The Romance Reader "Shay does an admirable job with a difficult subject, writing...with sensitivity and realism and without shying away from any of the hard issues." Shelley Mosley Booklist "What a great book. Controversial subjects handled in a sensitive and yet honest way--characters that just walked off the page, real and warm. The story just kept coming. A heart toucher, about problems with no easy solutions. Wonderful Don't miss " A Reader.
