Editorial Reviews

Review

NPR’s Science Fridays. On the surface, Adelaide, 46, has the life she envisioned when she dropped out of college and got married—a family, a volunteer position, and a great husband. The husband, however, is cheating with her best friend Gwynnie. When Adelaide meets terminally ill physics professor Jakob Pankowicz in a hospice center, new worlds literally begin unfolding as she takes classes and he takes her under his wing and (a little more) in the laboratory. As if these plots twists weren’t clichéd enough, both of her children, Patty and Eric have also started to stray from the straight and narrow. Patty is having sex (gasp!) and Eric is getting kicked out of camp among other places. And, of course, Addie who has always deferred to her husband, must take matters into her own hands and discover what it’s like to carve out her own life. It is not necessarily the story here that makes Adelaide’s worries so utterly unconvincing, it’s that she seems like a a blank canvas that the artist cannot decide how to fill. Overall, the writing is clean and consistent, but the story itself has very little soul. -- manuscript review by Publishers Weekly, an independent organization

What really works for me with this excerpt is the way Adelaide herself is crafted-- we learn a great deal about her with a very few actions, rather than endless description. Unfortunately, that isn't always the case with the plot, but that's nothing a quick revision wouldn't take care of. It's quite obvious that the author really feels for Adelaide (and as all those writing books tell you, if you don't cry when a character's dog dies, you're not doing it right), and has the skills to make the reader do so as well. I like this one a lot. -- Amazon Top Reviewer

About the Author

April L. Hamilton lives in Southern California with her two children and entirely too many pets. When she's not writing, kid-wrangling or pursuing her grandiose and hopeless dream of a neat and orderly household, she can generally be found reading, reclaiming the domestic arts (aka "crafting") or taking in a movie.
