. Debut author, Donsky-Levine enters the literary arena with a superbly-crafted exploration of the grieving process and what happens when we cannot move on. In Riley, a feisty, emotionally scarred woman who lives in an uncertain world where survival shares a place alongside the thin edge of violence, she has given her readers a unique and fresh perspective on an oft-traversed topic (sexual abuse). One seen not only through Riley's eyes, but through her cat's and the two equally-damaged men who enter her isolated existence, hoping to save her." ---MidwestReview

Donsky-Levine's haunting debut novella of lost souls living half-lives amidst the bustle of New York City in the 1970s is so beautifully crafted, so seamlessly seasoned with unforgettable characters and a storyline that delivers on all levels, readers will be begging for more."---Readers' Favorite
