-Library Journal on The Book Club

"Skyward is a soaring, passionate story of loneliness and pain and the simple ability of love to heal and transcend both. Mary Alice Monroe's voice is as strong and true as the great birds of prey of whom she writes."

-New York Times bestselling author Anne Rivers Siddons on Skyward

"Readers who enjoy such fine southern voices as Pat Conroy will add the talented Monroe to their list of favorites."

-Booklist on Sweetgrass

Her talent for infusing her characters with warmth and vitality and her ability to spin a tale with emotional depth will earn her a broad spectrum of readers, particularly fans of Barbara Delinsky and Nora Roberts."

-Publishers Weekly on The Four Seasons

"Mary Alice Monroe is helping to redefine the beauty and magic of the Carolina Lowcountry. Every book she has written has felt like a homecoming to me." -New York Times bestselling author Pat Conroy
