“A vibrant, deeply affecting, and wonderfully rich coming of age story in 1940s New York. The city is her own glorious character, and you feel transported into another era that is sadly gone for good. The cast of eccentric, flawed, complex and eminently lovable characters make you long for just a little more time in their company as this sweeping novel draws to a close. I couldn’t put it down.“

“One of the greatest stories I’ve ever heard. Elizabeth Gilbert writes a woman’s mind and soul so well, it made me happy and broke my heart simultaneously. I was with her every step of the way!“

“I truly enjoyed this book by Elizabeth Gilbert. The writing style, characters, and plot had me staying up way too late to see what would happen next. It was so refreshing to see a story have a leading lady who is so complex, relatable, and true to herself. Great work!“


“For readers who are intrigued by NYC, pre and post WWII, off-Broadway life, feminism - you will grab on from the start. While none of these subjects are my top draws into storytelling, I am now interested in them after reading this book. Beautifully written as only Elizabeth Gilbert can do. I will walk through life knowing these characters and will remind myself that while they are not real, they represent many women and their stories. That’s important. There are so many lessons about being human here. Important perspectives that can make the world a softer, more accepting place if more would practice what’s written in these pages. I will pause and think before judging - with Vivian in mind. A quarter into the book, I had to push through the detail of the 1940’s theater and follies world of NYC. I’m so glad I did. There was a big picture treasure waiting in the rest of the pages and how the story came together in its final chapters. Well-written, important content. I recommend to women of all ages. Men could find a new view in these pages as well. Can’t wait to see what story you tell next, Elizabeth.“

“I loved this book so much. I couldn’t put it down. The writing is just beautiful.“

“Wonderful story of relationships and insights. I devoured it.“
