Great review in FOCUS

While writing A MILLION MILES FROM BOSTON, I thought a lot about Lucy's "psychological biography." After all, I was writing about a girl who'd lost her mother six years earlier. I knew she'd have lingering unconscious and conscious issues and that she'd view everything through the lens of grief. Having not actually lost a parent, I wanted to be as accurate as possible depicting Lucy's life. Over the years I talked about this with several psychologists. A couple of them also read drafts and gave me feedback. One has written a wonderful review in FOCUS, the publication for the National Association of Social Workers (Massachusetts chapter). Thank you, Cynthia! Oct11FOCUS_v7_ONLINE(1) 5-1
