"SUPERB! A written tapestry that is so well crafted that it literally paints in the mind of the reader. Striking visual imagery, sexual chemistry, music, mystery, and pounding emotion set the story in motion, where loss to cancer begins a restorative transformation of Allie's body and the very essence of her entire life."
-Frank DellaCroce, MD, FACS, Center for Restorative Breast Surgery, New Orleans.
"Wallinga's imaginative debut . . . a story not only of identity and femininity, but of magic . . . The Big Easy stars in this affecting novel about a couple's unusual route to redemption."
