Editorial Reviews

Review


"One of the greatest riddles, it turns out, is a parent's real life, the one not shown to children. ...Skillful dialogue as well as brisk pacing and an effective resolution."

~Kirkus Reviews

"
A captivating story filled with mystery, suspense, love, longing and family."
~Readers' Favorite (5 STARS - Silver Medal / 2017 Book Awards)


"A compelling portrait of three memorable women and the unique bond that exists between mothers and daughters."
~Booked Solid (5 STARS)

"This is that kind of book, one so real and important that it bears at least a second reading - after the first sinks in."
~Grady Harp, San Francisco Review of Books (Amazon Top 100 Reviewer - 5 STARS)

"While I enjoyed The Taste of Air for the story, full of suspense, mystery, and drama, which kept me entertained, it also got me thinking."

~Big Al's Books and Pals (5 STARS)

"A family saga bridging decades and filled with shocking revelations, hope and love, you won't be able put this book down." 
 ~Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author

"The Taste of Air is an engaging story about what our mothers teach us. When Nell and Bridget start pulling at the thread of their mother's deceptions, their own worlds unravel."

~Katie O'Rourke, Amazon bestselling author

"This is a book to choose as a companion for curling up on a sofa on a dark winter day or for laying on the beach in the summer...character-driven fiction at its best." 

~Ann Warner, author of The Babbling Brook Naked Poker Club series

"Gail Cleare's mesmerizing new novel...will make you see your own life with new eyes and leave you transformed."

~
Jamie Cat Callan, author of Bonjour, Happiness!
