MAR 2015. Southern festivals, folk music, families falling out & returning- "Shana writes a magical story that stays with you long after the final page. As with one of the characters, 'She knows real magic.'" -Virginia Brown, author of Dark River Road & the Dixie Diva mystery series​

APRIL 2014. An OnPoint Radio suggestion as Best Summer Reads 2014! 

Set on the Massachusetts coast, The Mosquito Hours is a multi-generational story about how the women in a family attempt to keep secrets about their desires, spirituality, and motherhood.
