rave reviews

“This book is so different, so sobering, so nuanced in its telling of a truly unique and, at the same time, beautiful and sad story.”

“Your book blew me away. I inhaled it, couldn’t put it down…I’m going to read it again.”

“The burden of the story had very different effects on the three powerful women in this book, and it drove the trajectory of each of their lives in different ways. I commend Allison for being brave enough to share a very private story and for coming out stronger on the other side.”

“Holy sh*t Allison, this has to be a movie!”

“I admire and salute your honesty and your self-awareness. You are a gift, as is this book.”

“It’s a touching and compelling story that I’m grateful to have read. Fair warning, though, once you start reading it, it’s hard to put down… I finished it in two days! ”
