Tending Memory is absolutely exquisite in its lyricism and story, and truly one of the best novels that I have read in years. An extraordinary accomplishment."~Mickey Turnbull-Coughlin


"The writing is stunning.Tending Memoryis definitely a poet's novel. There are lines which leap out at me. This will be a book I return to and there have not been many of those."~Nancy Morrey

"Tending Memory is a touching and insightful book about love, loss, and life's journey. Ms Paul has crafted a mysterious story of relationships, memories and how history defines our identity. Her writing style flows like water pulling the reader downstream to the final conclusion." ~ Anne Ramsay
