Reviews

"Amy's Story is simply spellbinding. This is a story at once about identity, love and social upheaval; a woman's journey from old world to new; from Italy to America. Mysterious, brave and captivating." -Joe McGinniss Jr., author of Carousel Court and The Delivery Man "Lawton's characters connect to words with dynamic interactions and intellectual alacrity. This author's voice manages both the interior lives of her characters and the connective tissue of their worlds. Anna Lawton's mastery of story orchestrates the best out of 'situation and plot, ' with a full range of motion using the entire emotional alphabet." -Grace Cavalieri, Producer/host, "The Poet and the Poem" from the Library of Congress "From the collapsing towers of 9/11 to the lyrical groves of northern Italy, the author ingeniously morphs Amy's Story into a journey across America and back and forth across time. Along the way we meet a cohort of colorful characters, witness several romances, and there are wars and politics, too-all woven into a mesmerizing narrative that unspools like a good film. Anna Lawton is not only a scholar of the first rank, but a deft and artful novelist with a flair for the unexpected in her work." -Louis Menashe, author of Moscow Believes in Tears: Russians and Their Movies
