“[Heart Land] combines the energy and creativity of Miller’s youth and sagacious wisdom of a woman who has seen the world and experienced first-hand progressive change.” - SE Examiner
“Ms. Miller is a powerful, eloquent writer.” – Silver Reviews
“When looking back is looking forward - Heart Land is sweet, deft and subtle... Sometimes funny, occasionally poignant, Heart Land is a first-rate, observant look at prewar life in a small Ohio town. It is a time and place that are mythic now. Honesty, courage, and caring, friends, relatives, family and community are linked in generational and geographic semi-isolation, and every one knows and (mostly) cares about everybody else. Adults try to understand, children struggle to live up to adult values, and small incidents loom large as major life lessons are drawn from them.
Integrity and compassion underlie Heart Land’s sensibility. Its people are real living, breathing human beings. Miller’s work is engaging; an often lyric expression of small-town Midwestern America left not so long behind, with solid, reliable echoes that still lead to a simple, but well justified life.”– John Legry, author of "The Copper-Handles Affair"
“... Heart Land wears the triple crown of literary genius: it is profound, beautiful and arresting from the first page...” – Writerface.com, the online social network for writers & literary agents
“... a beautifully scripted tale of two boys and their unforgettable home town.” – Leigh Goodison, author of "WildOnes"
