"The Amendment is nuanced, witty, and insightful, exploring the fetters of family and community that prove impossible to escape. Parrish is a smart, savvy writer with a gift for exploring landscapes of both geography and emotion. Once again, she has produced a work of considerable charm and poignancy."--Jacob M. Appel, author of Millard Salter's Last Day.

"The Amendment is a beautifully written story about a new widow's struggle to wrap her mind around her husband's death by setting off on a cross-country journey in search of she knows not what. Parrish's prose is eloquent yet crisp, moving the story along quickly. A delightful must-read, sure to take its place among today's top literary fiction "--Michelle Cox, author of The Henrietta and Inspector Howard Series.

Anne Leigh Parrish is the author of Women Within; By the Wayside; What Is Found, What Is Lost; Our Love Could Light The World; and All The Roads That Lead From Home.
