The Secret Language in the news

From Kim Nowacki the Yakima Herald Republic:(click for entire article)

The book is a warm, candid and insightful memoir of the nonverbal traditions -- gesture, habit, disposition -- that pass among women. Martin's prose is subtle in its power to relate what connects a mother and child, sisters, friends and romantic relationships.


Martin conveys with a poignant but astute observance, the wide-eyed wonderment and reckless abandonment of childhood, as well as the perils of growing older and then finally solace, and where to find it.

"It's absolutely the best work I can do at this point in my life," she says.

"So now it's a blank page again."
