Jacqueline's NPR Commentary
This is the first in a series of my commentaries for New England NPR. Fall is ripe with memories and mine link back to a death and a remarkable teacher.
Listen to Jacqueline on Writers Voice with Francesca Rheannon as she describes her first book, The Comet’s Tale, a novel about Sojourner Truth.
Reviews of Picture This
Boston Globe, July 22, 2012 – Pick of the Week: Picture This
Ellen Meeropol of Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley recommends “Picture This” by Jacqueline Sheehan (Morrow): “In a sequel to ‘Lost & Found,’ also set on Maine’s Peaks Island, Rocky Pelligrino is contacted by Natalie, who is just out of foster care and claims she’s the unacknowledged daughter of Rocky’s late husband. This page-turner is a profound exploration of damage done in childhood, the nature of evil, and the difficulty of knowing what is true.”

"By page four, I was immersed in mystery, suspense, and romance. I finally turned the bedside lamp off at midnight!"
A review by Maura Lynch
" Her story line is riveting, and I very much hope that there is a third Rocky Pelligrino novel in the works. Even if you did not take a vacation this summer, when you read PICTURE THIS you will have traveled well." - Maura Lynch
Goodreads Review by Rebecca Holland
"Picture This, … is an ‘everyman’s’ story – one that the everyday person can relate to, enjoy and will want to share with their friends." Five Stars
"Sheehan uses her skills as both a psychologist and a writer to create a solid, insightful story that will leave fans eagerly awaiting another visit from the strong heroine, her dog and her friends."
