"The Enigma of Iris Murphy is a quiet collection of linked short stories focused on a powerful, intelligent woman. Smith's movement from story to story allows her to draw a larger portrait of Iris Murphy, inviting readers to know the magic and strength of loving relationships."
From New Pages Review by Allyson Hoffman
"Rarely does one book encompass all of the finest elements of fiction -- well-developed, intriguing characters; a heart-warming and seamless plot; and most importantly, an authentic, crystal-clear voice. When Charlotte Comes Home is such a book."
