Staff Reviews


I loved the quiet power of RULES FOR VISITING. It’s a celebration of connections, friendships, and a story of the choices we make and sometimes the choices that make us.—Kathleen

May 2019 Indie Next List


“A skillful writer can show how things that seem unrelated are actually intertwined. In this way, Kane quietly reminds us that friendships and plants may be deeply rooted but need tending to bloom completely, that words matter, that going back to their roots may change how we think about what we say, and that a quiet life can be a full one. This gentle book grows on you (the puns just keep coming), but it is a refreshing change from the stresses of our digital age or the angst of so many recent books about contemporary life. Entertaining and erudite, I highly recommend this book.”
— Ann Carlson, Waterfront Books, Georgetown, SC

Description
