Praise

“Told with an integrity that makes it compelling . . . The reader gains full confidence in characterizations that are both complex and especially well rendered.”—New York Times

“Pulls the reader into its clutches, then refuses to let go. As Beryl Fonteyn recounts her troubled but not unusual childhood, Davis-Gardner’s seductive poetics lure us on. . . . Captivating.”—Boston Globe

“Rarely has an author confronted more honestly one of the deepest betrayals of the notion of family… A deeply moving piece of literature.”—Los Angeles Times

“Davis-Gardner skillfully renders the fine lines that connect sympathy, intimacy and menace. . . . A wise novel.”—Washington Post

“A strong and wise book . . . Angela Davis-Gardner writes with integrity.”—Kaye Gibbons

“What a strong voice Angela Davis-Gardner has, and what a listening heart. Forms of Shelter shows the transcendent power of childhood to heal itself when the adult world cannot or will not."—Anne Rivers Siddons
