Reviews
"The Portlander's delivery is always laced with smart and sly subtleties. Manaster draws magnetically, without a load of extras, and her audience is likely to sneak away only to fill a drink for her, to ensure she doesn t stop telling her story." --The Register-Guard"
"Manaster (You Could Be Home by Now) has written a deeply human and morally saturated novel, with captivating language. Don t miss this sympathetic examination of how a tragic incident can irrevocably change a life's course." --Library Journal, Starred Review

"The Done Thing is a masterful example of what fiction can be. The writing is sharp and evocative, tenderly depicting a sister's grief-born obsession. Clarence is an unrepentant villain, so different from typical death penalty-themed novels. Lida is wounded and bitter, tender and loving, and completely lost in the past. But justice, compassion and forgiveness are the real main characters of this book, and readers will know them better by the story's end." --The Deseret News

"In this engrossing story about the effects that vengeance can have on love, Manaster refuses to take the happy, easy way out, instead leaving her strikingly relatable characters with just enough room to breathe." --Publishers Weekly
