Advance Praise

"I have been honored to witness Vanita's amazing growth as a writer. Her children's books have won a dedicated nationwide following. Silent Is The Magpie is, by turns, touching and thrilling and, finally, inspiring. To women of a certain age, they will read this and when finished say, ‘I want to meet Jamie Barlow!'

"They will also realize that we truly never stop growing and learning, and then saying to the world with both feet firmly planted on the ground: ‘This is who I am.' Hurrah for Jamie! Hurrah for us!"
