The December 2015 issue of Quill & Quire (the Canadian book trade monthly) has a starred review (indicating “books of exceptional merit”) of The Shadows We Mistake For Love. Reviewer Brenda Schmidt calls the collection “wonderful” and says that “these stories resemble a close-knit community. Shifting in response to internal and external forces, the Slocan Valley and its inhabitants—wholly realized under Wayman’s deft touch—feel simultaneously alive and vulnerable.”
