Driving Lessons: Reviews

“Fishman demonstrates a rare gift for illuminating the interior lives of women with honesty, generosity, and a whole lot of heart.” – Jillian Medoff, bestselling author of I Couldn’t Love You More and Hunger Point

“A refreshingly honest and insightful story of a woman whose questions about the direction of her life follow her from the big city to small country roads.” – Meg Donohue, author of All the Summer Girls and How to Eat A Cupcake

Sarah is a relatable mess, Josh is a dream husband, and the supporting characters are mostly a hoot…a charming story. – Susan Maguire

NY Journal of Books:

A sparkling comedy with a heart. From beginning to end, Sarah is a believable, likeable protagonist, and her story is absorbing. Did I mention it was funny? I dare anyone to read Sarah’s sister in law’s depiction of childbirth and sex afterward and not have their sides aching from laughter.

“The characters in this book are real. That’s the best way to put it. Their lives are real, their feelings and fears and dreams. All real. That’s what makes the book so enjoyable.” – cupcake’s book cupboard

“This is a good book about female identity, relationships, independence, and interconnectedness.  I really loved it, and would recommend it to readers fond of books focusing on female characters which out being overt chick lit.  This should be on a lot of summer reading lists.” – Tiffany’s Bookshelf

“…A cute story, a light read…refreshing in a world of books that are trying to insert unnecessary drama.” Traveling With T
