Mom Egg Review Literature & Art:
“…a well-integrated treatment of love and family. Sienkiewicz’s decision to cast the narrative as a loose address to Joe affords the story a layer of suspense that remains wonderfully unresolved until the novel’s very end.””
A Splendid Messy Life Review:
“Stories of women who have suffered sexual abuse have been at the forefront of media recently. How do we empower these women to find strength within darkness? How do we ensure that they are heard? Those are questions that Linda Sienkiewicz has us think about in her debut novel.”
Book Viral Review:
“Take it as a given that the writing is excellent as she steers away from clichéd characters that are crippled by irony… In The Context Of Love is a must read for the year ahead and is recommended without reservation..”
Story Circle Book Reviews
“The author’s strength is in her character development and unexpected plot twists. She is obviously a close observer of people, and the way they interact with each other in friendship, courtships, marriage and family. She brings to life intergenerational differences in perceptions of the same events. In the Context of Love is a powerful story that stays with the reader long after reading.”
