—Anna, middle-school teacher in Virginia
"The Gate is a serious, well-written book about weighty topics that will encourage middle-schoolers to think about the direction of their lives. It would be great as a school assignment or a read-aloud so that it can be used to foster discussion."

"I *loved* it. Every night, I couldn't wait to get home to read what happened next. I plan to actually RE-READ this book (The Gate) at a future point, and that is the ultimate stamp of endorsement from your Catholic Librarian...It is inspiring, it is lovely, it is thought-provoking, it has an ending that made me cry. Multiple times. This is an absolutely worthwhile book for middle school aged children and adults alike. "
- Tiffany, Life of a Catholic Librarian blog
"Parents looking for a book that...promotes wholesome Christian values and the Catholic faith will want to get their hands on Olivia's Gift. Pro-life values are subtly underscored in a moving chapter...and Olivia's turning to her favorite saint for help ultimately leads her to do the right thing, after taking a few wrong turns along the way. Even better, her example influences her friends to become better persons themselves. "
- San Antonio Today's Catholic
"I am always looking for excellent Christian books to recommend to my students and give as gifts. But so many are either too preachy or not well-written. Olivia and The Little Way surprised and delighted me! As an English teacher, I have always said that the test of a good children's book is that an ADULT will enjoy it. Both this book and its sequel, Olivia's Gift, kept me reading from cover to cover. "
- Betty Wolf, teacher and secular Carmelite
