American Suite is an edgy comedy of manners. What occurs whilst a WASP relatives turns into multicultural—a little bit Jewish, a section Hindu, and, remember the fact that, African-American? here's a “chick lit” novel that upends our notions approximately romance, big name, family members, identification, and our possible insatiable starvation for memoir to invite, “Who are we actually, and what are we becoming?” >>>>>>>

“Diana Sheets has written a really cutting edge novel. She cleverly tells the tale of 3 ladies, a mom and her daughters, via compelling diary entries from each one of them over a 12 months interval. they're clever, refined girls, each one juggling their very own lives and private relationships, in addition to the usually adversarial familial one amongst the 3 of them. Ms. Sheets has skillfully saved each one personality in personality, now not consistently a simple job, and their tales are informed in one of these means that every voice is obviously outlined. to easily say, 'It’s a true web page turner,' by some means doesn’t appear to do American Suite justice, yet that's precisely what this publication is. I couldn’t wait to find what great writing awaited me at the subsequent web page. My congratulations to Ms. Sheets on a superb story.” Kathleen Kubik, writer, Neither Sand Nor Sea >>>>>>>>>>>

“Diana Sheets is unafraid of taking up the sacred cows of ‘chick lit’ in a sweeping relatives saga that gives up attractive males, violent and treacherous romance, boring marriage, soulful union and imaginative ladies . . . . spiritual and non secular confusions vie for cognizance with kinfolk loyalties and geographic rootedness as a brand new Yorker strikes to the Midwest looking for a good-enough life.” Jerry Sander, writer of limitless Calling (Certain regulations Apply)
