"An emotionally and intellectually astute debut."—Kirkus
"[A] delightful first novel... wise, witty and observant."—The London Times
"Segal writes with an understated elegance."—The Observer (UK)
"[A] charming modern take on Edith Wharton's The Age of Innocence. With understated wit, empathy and a cinematic eye of detail, Segal brings alive a host of characters so robust that you can easily imagine them onscreen .A winning debut novel."—People (***1/2 stars)
"A crafty homage [Segal] writes with engaging warmth."—Entertainment Weekly, Grade: B+
"Readers who enjoy fast-paced, gently satirical literary novels, fans of Allegra Goodman, and book group participants will find a Shabbat dinner's worth of noshing in this accomplished debut novel by the daughter of author Erich Segal."—Library Journal (Starred Review)
"Inspired by The Age of Innocence, Segal's book is warmer, funnier, and paints a more dynamic and human portrait of a functional community that is a wonderful juxtaposition to Wharton's cold social strata."—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
