Advance Praise for THE CURE FOR DREAMING + Upcoming Blog Tour and Events

The trade reviews for The Cure for Dreaming are starting to come in!

“Winters combines the history of women's rights in the early 20th century with a spellbinding story of a young woman caught at a crossroads between family and self. A strong female protagonist, realistic dialogue, and well-written prose allow readers to become immersed in Olivia's rather unique (and sometimes frightening) world.”
School Library Journal 

“[A] gripping, atmospheric story of mind control and self-determination.”
Kirkus Reviews
