Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

"A dark, stirring novel with a riveting final twist whose implications linger well after the last page" —Kirkus Reviews

Review

★★★★★ "A page-turning psychological thriller that grabs the reader's attention right from the start. The premise of the novel promises a dark and gritty story. And the author delivers. If you enjoy well-crafted thrillers that will make you cry, hold your breath, and ruminate, give this book a chance. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you wanting more." SPR Review, 5 Stars.
 
"Sally Saylor De Smet delivers a heart-wrenching story of a little girl who never had a chance. Through artfully scripted prose she paints a picture of a troubled family unit--unit being an oxymoron at best. The characteristics she assigns to each of the four familial characters are extremely well-developed and I found myself often wanting to jump in between the pages and accost the father, in particular. The mother is a passive existence of life and the brother and dead sister, in my opinion are the fortunate ones as they were able to escape--one to college; the other by death. De Smet's clinical nuance to the psychiatric sessions between prison doctor, Lieberman and inmate, Quinn are fascinating. There is a natural flow of De Smet's pen when they are conversing that allows the reader to be an active listener to the session as he or she reads on. This story has no drag whatsoever and the voice of compassion De Smet maintains throughout the entire novel is tremendous. I look forward to this writer's next novel. It is abundantly clear she has found her calling in life and should continue to embrace the natural writing ability she has. Her audience will welcome the next after reading Pages in the Wind. Pages in the Wind is a superb example of how an outstanding novel of compassion and grit is written!"--Feathered Quill

"Secrets and deceit are the main themes in this captivating debut novel about a long-suffering woman who has never felt like she's belonged. Flawless writing transports readers back through Emily's past to uncover a disturbing truth, and keeps the twists and turns creative and fresh. Emily's pain is palpable -- as is the anger she feels towards those who've treated her reprehensively. The explosive conclusion is as shocking as it is fulfilling."--RT Book Reviews
 ★★★★★ De Smet pens a chilling tale in her extraordinary debut. Not intended for the faint of heart, Pages In The Wind is nothing less than a powerful and provocative read. 5 Star Review--Manhattan Book Review
Pages in the Wind is a page-turner with an unexpected twist that stays with you long after you finish the story. Sally Saylor DeSmet delivers a genuine story of loss, violence, abuse, and secrets that changes you forever."--San Francisco Book Review

✮✮✮✮✮ Pages in the Wind is a riveting read; one I found quite impossible to step away from until I had read it through. Within its pages rests a first-rate psychological thriller and one of the most compelling coming of age stories I've read. De Smet's writing style is haunting and delicious as her Emily narrates the marvelous episodes in her life as well as the most awful and nightmarish. Some passages shine so brightly; such as that describing Emily and Perry's evening at his parents' home. Others are sadly realistic in their starkness and brutality. Pages in the Wind is not just an impossibly good debut novel; it's an outstanding work of literature and it's most highly recommended.--5 Stars, Readers' Favorite
