What People are Saying About This

author of Once and The Big Dream - Rebecca Rosenblum

"Suzanne Alyssa Andrew's writing is sinuous, polished and deceptively simple, drawing you closer to her characters, their fears and longings, and all the mysteries they are trying to penetrate. Circle of Stones is a dragonfly's view on a complex story of love, loss, and art, in ten chapters. I enjoyed the shifting point of view because it makes the reading experience both exciting and challenging — as a reader, I was also a fully engaged participant in the novel, finding connections, and empathy, with and for the characters."

author of And Also Sharks and Pulpy & Midge - Jessica Westhead

"Suzanne Alyssa Andrew's Circle of Stones reveals the secret lives of the almost-invisible strangers we encounter every day — the timid elderly woman next door, the sullen street kid, the stone-faced government worker — and traces the hidden connections among them. In this enthralling, character-driven novel, nobody is quite as they seem, and routine interactions have surprising layers of meaning. Andrew brings a sweet vulnerability to her unwittingly entwined protagonists, and sets a compelling mystery at the heart of it all."

author of Beginning of Was - Ania Szado

"Suzanne Alyssa Andrew is a talented writer who creates fresh fiction with acuity and sharp wit. She has a keen sense of detail and timing, and knows well how to draw a reader into characters' worlds and concerns — with a balance of sensitivity and irreverence that makes for a crackling good read."

I kept reading thinking it was going somewhere but it didn't. Reminds me of something you would discuss and pick apart not really an entertaining, pass the time away kind of book which is what I wanted.
