A beautifully written book full of tension and emotional power. Unlike most psychological thrillers, this is a book with a lot of heart and one you will keep thinking about long after you've finished it. I'm really looking forward to her next one!

"Smart, funny, thought-provoking, and often very moving; I plan to keep The Inspirational Atheist right by my desk, for those moments when I need ideas and inspiration from these many wonderful writers."

“I was once again struck by the key to genealogy: stick-to-itiveness. Yes, it takes creative thinking and knowledge of available resources, etc., but basically it takes a willingness to just keep at it and never give up. Being an optimistic idiot helps.”
