“Diana Sheets has written a really cutting edge novel. She cleverly tells the tale of 3 ladies, a mom and her daughters, via compelling diary entries from each one of them over a 12 months interval. they're clever, refined girls, every one juggling their very own lives and private relationships, in addition to the usually opposed familial one amongst the 3 of them. Ms. Sheets has skillfully stored every one personality in personality, now not regularly a simple activity, and their tales are advised in this type of manner that every voice is obviously outlined. to easily say, 'It’s a true web page turner,' by some means doesn’t appear to do American Suite justice, yet that's precisely what this booklet is. I couldn’t wait to find what significant writing awaited me at the subsequent web page. My congratulations to Ms. Sheets on a very good story.” Kathleen Kubik, writer, Neither Sand Nor Sea >>>>>>>>>>>

“Diana Sheets is unafraid of taking over the sacred cows of ‘chick lit’ in a sweeping relatives saga that provides up horny males, violent and treacherous romance, boring marriage, soulful union and creative ladies . . . . non secular and religious confusions vie for consciousness with kinfolk loyalties and geographic rootedness as a brand new Yorker strikes to the Midwest looking for a good-enough life.” Jerry Sander, writer of limitless Calling (Certain regulations Apply)
