Configurations - The Many Faces of Love
What reviewers are saying:
An outstanding novel. What could have been a meandering history lesson (CONFIGURATIONS)
In this beautifully written novel…carefully researched by the author…set just after the turn of the last century…enough twists and turns to keep reader’s interest level high. Readers who enjoy a wonderful story along with a mix of history will particularly enjoy CONFIGURATIONS…

This elegantly constructed and emotionally powerful novel is a compelling read from first to last…though they belong to a bygone era, many of the problems encountered by (the Macklins) are timeless. - BookWire Review
