“Elizabeth Sumner Wafler’s enchanting debut novel, In Robin’s Nest, is a perfect feel-good summer read. The story is a rotating first person narration by three characters: Robin, Lark and Dean, though Robin is clearly the lead protagonist. It is almost like reading parallel stories as the novel moves back and forth from 1977 to the present, creating a compelling ‘will she or won’t she’ drama.
The author’s strength is in her descriptions of place, time and character development. She creates a believable plot . . . This is a richly detailed story of passion and failure, deception and honesty, with anticipation and nostalgia. It is about living with your choices, and the ties that hold a family together.
Wafler has a unique story-telling style, and I was quickly hooked on the plot as well as the characters whose lives intertwined to make this a memorable novel.”
