"In Diane Barnes's More Than, Peggy Moriarty finds herself unmoored when she sends her twins off to college while still grieving her husband's loss fourteen years before. With a light touch, a dash of humor, and a pace that keeps the pages turning, Barnes has crafted memorable and relatable characters in this story of grief, friendship, and self-discovery."
-- Jennifer Klepper, USA Today Best Selling Author of Unbroken Threads
"A warm and wonderful novel about love and loss (of many kinds!) You'll root for the relatable Peggy along her journey of parenthood, cardio boot camp, and self-acceptance. A book chockfull of heart!"
--Annie Hartnett, Author of Rabbit Cake
"In MORE THAN, Diane Barnes captures some of the true struggles with extended grief, depression, and self image while keeping the story fresh, crisp, and real. The character development is superbly done, as Peggy's outer appearance becomes secondary to her inner transformation. I was "Team Peggy" all the way and almost did a few sit-ups myself. Almost."
