  1. Judith Ryan Hendricks, author of Bread Alone

    Mary Lou Sanelli says things that matter to me…and when she says them, they sing.

  2. Margaret Bikman, The Beliingham Herald

    Sanelli is jaw-droppingly honest.

  3. Hayley Clayton, letter to author

    I just wanted to tell you that I just finished your book and loved it. Thank you for your honesty and for dispelling the movie myth of friendship. I have felt like a failure for so long for not being able to understand what went wrong in relationships that I invested so much in and cared for with all my heart. Your book showed me that I am not alone.
