Shawna Lemay Review

Calm Things received a wonderful mention on Brenda Schmidt's blog, Alone on a Boreal Stage. Here is the first paragraph:

"Calm Things is indeed a gift

...in the fullest sense of the word. Calm Things by Shawna Lemay is the most beautifully written, generous and honest collection of personal essays that I've read in ages. Thought-provoking to say the least. Because the clean, pitch-perfect prose never calls attention to itself, I was left looking at a world through Lemay's eyes and with Lemay's clear, wide-angled vision. What I saw was a well-rounded world. A moving world. A world I both know and don't know."
