Next to LoveNext to Love received ***Starred Reviews*** from both Booklist and Library Journal:

From Booklist: “The quiet devastation wrought by WWII on the lives of ordinary Americans forms the backbone of this haunting and profoundly moving novel that interweaves the stories of three small-town women …”
