(ARC received from the publisher for review on Literary Inklings.)

In Shelter Frances Greenslade offers a complex, achingly poignant creation that delves into the relationship of mothers and daughters, sisters, and womankind alike with a subtle grace and an honesty that fluctuates between the sentimental and unsentimental. There were three elements of Shelter that struck me the greatest: Greenslade’s characters, story and scenes. Her characters, from Maggie and Jenny to the scattering of women throughout the novel, stand boldly off the page and reach into the heart of the reader without fear. They represent both strength and weakness, and the journey of women learning through life’s trials how to govern each trait.
