Praise for Landfall

“Ellen Urbani has written an amazing and original piece of literature. If you love family sagas characterized by women holding the generations together via a magical combination of grit and grace, such as Isabel Allende’s House of the Spirits, you will love this haunting book! “

- Fannie Flagg, international bestselling author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

Praise for When I Was Elena

“The writing is gorgeous. While [Ellen’s] own story is riveting and bursting with observation, illustration, color, action, and life, the stories of the local women are extraordinary gifts of insight and caring that can make a difference in the way these women, and women like them, are seen. Perhaps understood. It is a book that one stays with, because [Ellen has] not backed away from the razor's edge - which is the truth of [her] own experience.”

- Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize winner and bestselling author of The Color Purple
