"Its cinematic potential clearly shows. The high-concept narrative is entertaining, well-paced, and highly visual ... It's a charming, humorous, and hopeful tale. A quirky, touching love story that offers insights into autism, religion, and personal tragedy." - Kirkus Reviews

"A wonderfully well-written, funny, romantic love story. Unique and inspirational. The Sound of Violet is not your average romance. Rarely do I find myself so captivated by a book that I cannot put it down for nearly two hours. Pick up this book and get lost in the beauty of their relationship. My only complaint would be that the story had an ending, as all stories do, and I did so want to keep reading on. Most highly recommended. The Sound of Violet is simply remarkable." - Readers' Favorite

"By turning conventions of contemporary romance on its stilettos and swapping out the typical sassy, fashion-obsessed female protagonist for an autistic male who reads jokes from index cards, Wolf puts a fresh spin on the genre. A sweet and entertaining romantic comedy, The Sound of Violet touches on autism and the power of faith. It will appeal to any reader who enjoys a blend of quirky characters, humor, and drama." - Blue Ink Review

"Heartfelt, out-of-the-ordinary romance. This warm, witty story does not shy away from serious themes like exploitation, redemption, and true love. The Sound of Violet explores heavy issues with a light touch. It's easy to see this being adapted into an enjoyable movie." - Foreword Reviews

"Wolf creates a gripping and heart-warming read out of the most surprising relationship. The Sound of Violet was a novel I really wanted to savor and appreciate. It did not disappoint, in fact, it outdid my expectations. It was a really heartwarming story and dealt with the two worlds of Shawn and Violet colliding well. The characters in this novel are fleshed out well, especially with their detailed backstories that make them feel like real people. I almost didn't want the story to come to an end but knew it had to." - Reedsy Discovery Reviews

"The Sound of Violet is a modern love story that will leave readers glued to the pages as they wait for this addictive storyline to unfold. With plenty of humorous, light-hearted moments to balance out the underlying serious nature of the book, The Sound of Violet validates how the human experience is rooted in craving connection and understanding. In this unexpected love story, readers will ride the rollercoaster of emotions with the characters as they overcome challenges in life and love." - The Book Review Directory
