Reviews

Cassandra Dunn's debut novel is a must for shrewd book club readers who like a little substance with their story.-- "Diablo magazine"
"Dunn's debut novel treats readers to a family in transition. . . . A neatly wrapped, happily-ever-after tale of a broken family that survives and thrives."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Dunn's debut novel is a lively, engaging, and heartfelt tale of learning how to cope with change. Dunn is able to fully draw the reader into each individual character's skin. This is a thoughtful and touching novel, and will leave readers eager for the author's next work."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"The Art of Adapting is a heartfelt tale of people making their way through emotional pain to grow stronger."-- "National Examiner"
"... [Dunn] compels with her sympathetic characters."-- "Library Journal"
Cassandra Dunn writes with compassion and grace about characters who are so compelling, you won't want this delightful novel to end.--Ellen Sussman, author of A Wedding in Provence and French Lessons "Library Journal"
"Told through the voices of each of the family, the story of how Lana gets her groove back is by turns humorous and touching, and infused with reality, which is a refreshing change for women's fiction."--Ellen Sussman, author of A Wedding in Provence and French Lessons "BrodartVibe"
It's difficult to believe that this carefully crafted, touching story is a first book. Dunn juggles four third-person narrators beautifully, and the story is intriguing and moving. . . . Once you meet the members of this family, you will not want to stop reading until you know how it all ends.--Ellen Sussman, author of A Wedding in Provence and French Lessons "Examiner.com on The Art of Adapting"
"A moving portrait of a family in transition.--Ellen Sussman, author of A Wedding in Provence and French Lessons "San Jose Mercury News"
