It’s a true mother-daughter relationship that endures the test of time.

REVIEWS:

“Simpatico takes the reader on a wonderful journey of the ever-evolving parent/child relationship and offers an interesting snapshot of the decade-by-decade transformation of 20th-century American society.”

- Mark Concannon, four-time Emmy Award-winning journalist and author of Mettle & Honor: Wisconsin Stories from the Battlefield

 

“Simpatico is a wonderfully heartfelt memoir of two lives in simpler times that only hints at darker currents beneath the surface and over the horizon – the way life worked before reality TV.”

-Douglas Armstrong, author of Even Sunflowers Cast Shadows, awarded Best Novel of 2010 by the Council for Wisconsin Writers
