Reviews

"In "Small Blessings", Woodroof displays a lovely gift for inventive plot turns and glittering moments. The novel brims with life and complexity and characters who never stop surprising themselves, and each other. This is a delightful and splendidly intelligent comedy." --Margot Livesey, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Flight of Gemma Hardy
"
""Small Blessings" is a comedy of manners that will capture your heart. Woodroof's prose is tart and sweet -- smart enough to make you laugh, but with an aching soul that will make you cry. I loved these characters even as I was chuckling at them, and I know Rose and Tom are a couple you'll relish rooting for...Get ready for pure pleasure shot through with moments of illumination: maybe this is how love really is." --Lydia Netzer, author of "Shine Shine Shine

""In the world of "Small Blessings", to choose happiness is to take a risk... Optimistic, wise, and beautifully written, this book about love in all its colors, hope, and the glory of third chances will stay with you long after you close the cover."--Joshilyn Jackson, "New York Times" bestselling author of "A Grown Up Kind of Pretty"
"A warm, caring and thoroughly entertaining debut that reads remarkably well." --"Library Journal" (starred review) "Along with dark humor and a confident command of story, strong characters and absurdist twists add to the fun." --"Publishers Weekly" "In "Small Blessings", Woodroof displays a lovely gift for inventive plot turns and glittering moments.
