Praise

New York Times Book Review
"Such lives have rarely been so thoroughly, honestly, lovingly evoked....[A] novel of compassion and great charm."

San Francisco Chronicle
"A wise, melancholy, glowing appreciation of middle age and after, a pleasure to read. There isn't a character in this book who isn't interesting."

(unknown)
"The special bond that exists between a woman and her best friend would be hard for anyone to put down on paper; but Shelby Heron has done it beautifully with her touching portrayal of Sara and her lifelong friend Harriet." - Fannie Flagg

(unknown)
"In 'Life Estates' Shelby Heron has written an unblinkingly and graceful novel of contemporary widowhood, filled with the pleasures and sorrows, loves and deaths, of three generations of coping women." - Alix Cates Shulman

Booklist
