Praise for Misty Urban:

"This author has an uncanny ability to explore relationships, love, and loss in a fresh and original way."

Publisher's Weekly starred review of A Lesson in Manners

"Urban draws you in to the circumstances of her characters' lives through prose so keen and almost unbearably lovely that it feels both mysterious and familiar."

Christiana Langeberg author of Half of What I Know

"Urban . . . is a keen observer of the human condition, a skillful wordsmith who writes with powerful clarity, and an absorbing storyteller who commands your attention."

X.H. Collins author of Flowing Water, Falling Flowers
