Editorial Reviews

Review

There isn't a woman alive who will not instantly recognize the sinews of this story, the bonds between the female generations within a family, along with the hopes that accompany them. -- Alan Caruba, Editor, Bookviews.com, December 2006 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Author

Women of all ages will find truth in the novel as it explores the many roles that women play. While the target audience is primarily women, any man who seeks to understand female relationships - between wives and daughters, sisters and mothers, girls and their fathers - will also find insight as he reads the lively conversation of easy-to-relate-to characters. The family issues explored in The O'Malley Trilogy transcend the sex of the family members; its themes of parental separation, adolescent identity, middle-age crisis, romantic attachment and parenting are universal. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Janice M. Van Dyck is an award-winning novelist and freelance writer.

Her current release, The Illusion of Secondhand Smoke, is about teenagers growing awry in the 1970's. Set in Levittown, Pennsylvania, the author describes the plot as a "modern-day Crime and Punishment," and an exploration of the choices that define us. "It's gritty, honest and probing," she says. "I'm not afraid to take on tough topics."

"I love to invent people and situations and then see what the characters are going to do. In my latest book, my protagonist Maria just couldn't bring herself to do what I needed her to do. She turned out to be a much better person than I ever imagined she was capable of. And the supporting cast, well let's just say they had a few surprises of their own. I never would have imagined what each of them would do when faced with their demons. I love getting into their heads. That's why I write."

Van Dyck's strength is in her insight and ability to describe a situation clearly, gracefully and with empathy for her characters. It is the cornerstone of her writing style. She tells stories that catch the reader's attention, give a new perspective, and motivate the reader to keep thinking about the topic long after they put the book down.

Ms Van Dyck approaches her story with love, humor and reverance for the mother/daughter relationship. I loved the intertwining of all the characters, from past to present, each character intermingled with each other culminating into a web of laughter, tears and hope!

A must read anyone who is (or knows) a mother, daughter, or grandmother.

Thanks Janice, can't wait for the next one !

All in all, a good read and something to think about. This is a book about a mother and daughter finally figuring each other out. Eve is 22, and she returns home to her mother after her boyfriend breaks up with her. She blames her mom for the breakup because her mom never liked the guy. They spend a weekend trying to figure each other and themselves out. Her mom, Amy, is trying really hard to help, but she always seems to come up short when it comes to what Eve really needs. Chapters alternate from Eve to Amy's narration, and each character is very insightful about what is really going on in their lives. I liked the characters; I think the dialogue and narration ring true, so you really believe that it's a naïve 22-year old and her 43-year old mother talking. A rolller coaster of emotion, sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's sad, and the characters really draw you in.

This is a story rich in dialogue to stir the heart of the mother/daughter that there is in every woman. A story about the mother daughter relationship,the toughest in the lives of many grown women. As the story unfolds we hear about Amy's mom and grandmother,its clear that the issues between mothers and daughters are universal.What Amy and Eve are dealing with has happened before in their family and they are trying to get it right this time. I liked the flashbacks to the grandmother and great-grandmother and the struggles they faced. Written with warmth enthusiam,and intelligence. A wonderful read.

The subject matter of this book is particularly interesting to me as both a mother and a daughter. I found myself glued to the pages, compelled to continue to explore and experience more of the deep shared truths, and the secrets of what goes on in the mind of both sides as they meander through the journey. This book is masterfully written as the author succesfully reveals the viewpoint as both mother and daughter, and how those viewpoints ultimately come together and find harmony and beauty.
