"The story is beautiful, haunting, and sad and gives great insight, of the profundity and grief, of what it is like to want children and not have them; but also to love and lose a person and wonder always, if your history together left anything lasting in their heart."
- Peggy Rambach
author of Fighting Gravity

"Sarno has a wonderful ability to balance sadness and stress with humor."
- Martha Carlson-Bradley
author of Sea Called Fruitfulness

"A very moving, beautifully written story which unfolds effortlessly and, with a graceful touch, moves us through powerful, emotionally volatile territory: lost love, childlessness, and that forever elusive past we never cease longing to revise . . . there's a stoic nobility to the narrator."
- Askold Melnyczuk
author of Ambassador of the Dead
