"The Illusion of Leaving evokes the emotional pull of home and upbringing."
"Set in small town Texas, The Illusion of Leaving captures small town pettiness and grace, where grudges get held for a lifetime, and love sometimes rides out of the blue to our rescue. They say home is where the hurt comes from, that we can never go back there. The characters in this well-written novel keep trying, and that's enough."
