Praise For The Heroines…
"On a picturesque acreage near Prairie Bluff, Illinois, thirteen-year-old Penny Entwhistle and her mother, Anne-Marie, run a retreat where literary Heroines seek temporary refuge from their tragic destinies. Franny Glass, Madame Bovary, Scarlett O'Hara, Catherine Earnshaw, and others find respite from their varied cries, but must return to their books eventually and suffer the fate that awaits...Favorite offers a fun take on the impact literature can have on our lives." -- Publishers Weekly
"Quirky: adolescent angst meets metaphysics, screwball-comedy trysts with the underpinnings of reality. It's funny and tender; it's a chance to see Scarlett O'Hara and Emma Bovary off duty." -- Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife
