More a character study than a tautly paced, plot-driven story, The Amendmentis a vibrant, introspective exploration of marriage and motherhood that highlights the power of self-acceptance.

-- Stephanie Turza, BookList

"Lavinia's ensuing transformation is at the heart of this novel about self-understanding and new possibilities...For Parrish, road trips make for appealing narratives because they're about escape and bridging past and future."

-- Publisher's Weekly

"The Amendment is nuanced, witty, and insightful, exploring the fetters of family and community that prove impossible to escape. Parrish is a smart, savvy writer with a gift for exploring landscapes of both geography and emotion. Once again, she has produced a work of considerable charm and poignancy."

--Jacob M. Appel, author of Millard Salter's Last Day.

"The Amendment is a beautifully written story about a new widow's struggle to wrap her mind around her husband's death by setting off on a cross-country journey in search of she knows not what. Parrish's prose is eloquent yet crisp, moving the story along quickly. A delightful must-read, sure to take its place among today's top literary fiction!"

--Michelle Cox, author of The Henrietta and Inspector Howard Series.
