Review quotes
"If There Never Was A You is a beautifully told story, that is sure to bring a smile to anyone who reads it."
-Midwest Book Review

A delightfully true sentiment. Amanda Rowe has put into words how every parent feels: big gratitude and love for all the moments we experience thanks to our beloved little ones. A beautiful message for kids to know how their presence deeply matters to us.

-Marianne Richmond, artist and author of If I Could Keep You Little
