Review by: Olivia Boler on March 25, 2012 :
There's a lot I enjoyed about this book such as the quirky appearance of the high priestess, Lulu's ability to read tarot cards, and the author's success at conveying the different personalities of each character.Lulu is a likable heroine who puts up with a lot of toxic BS from her dysfunctional family. The dialog is intense and reminded me of a staged play. Jumping between the September and March action works well and wasn't confusing.

Review by: A. D. Williamson on Nov. 8, 2011 : (no rating)
De Niscia gives voice to many of the spirits that trouble mothers who terminate pregnancies by choice or circumstance. Myself a transplant from the East Coast, I found her voices compelling and authentic, her characters colorful and commanding. I can see Momentary Mother spinning off into a series of adventures engaging readers for years to come.
