REVIEWS FOR "Unexpected Gifts" ( Mockingbird Lane Press)
“S.R. Mallery has caught the defining moments in the lives of one working class, upward striving family, as each one of them benefits from and contributes to the growth and setbacks of America itself…A rich and involving book, the author has written a gem.
––Dorothy Salisbury Davis, A Gentle Murderer, Lullaby of Murder,
The Pale Betrayer, etc.
“S.R. Mallery, with her strong sense of history and deft narrative skills, shows us one American family’s fascinating journey through flashpoints of American history, as a modern day young woman discovers the spirited narratives of her forbears, and is inspired to take charge of her own life…. an impressive, wonderfully thought out and well-told first novel.”
––Carla Davidson, former Senior Editor at American Heritage Magazine
“In S. R. Mallery’s fine first novel, the past is a trunk in her parents’ attic. Open it and a dozen vibrant, real characters, each with a distinct voice, leap out. The book covers decades––a stroll, a run, a skip through American history as the author adroitly rewinds and replays the greatest hits of those times, making sense of the present by experiencing the past. And who mattered.”
––Dan Vining, The Quick, The Next, and Among the Living
