"The novel soars when describing the relationship between the musician and her music."
-The Book Life Prize in Fiction
"The description of the music is perfection. I couldn't imagine it being written any more eloquently and beautifully. The way Lauren put the feeling of music into words was second to none...totally incomparable to the work of any other author."
"Reverie is a powerful story about hiding and dangerous patterns, it's about playing from memory and turning those memories into powerful instruments of change, and it's about what happens when that determination to succeed against all odds is attacked by something different...Most of all, Reverie profiles dreams, shattered visions, and survival. Tenacious and absorbing, Reverie is a story hard to put down."
-Diane Donovan, Senior Editor, Midwest Book Review
"Lauren E. Rico's debut novel is exquisitely written and showcases her knowledge of classical music and the beauty that it possesses. While I was unaware that Reverie was the first book in a series, I couldn't be happier that there will be more of this intense and compelling story." -Two Book Lovers Reviews
