Praise for After You’ve Gone:

“This is what makes After You’ve Gone so engaging. I felt connected to these women, as though I’d had intimate conversations with them both, and at the end of the book I was sad to leave them behind.”     — Alberta Views Magazine

“Everyone wants a grandmother like Lita, the young woman whose talents will surface in the next generation, the old crone you can go to, to affirm yourself.  As she frets the muse of her loves, the greatest being her National guitar, you want to be carried on her chords into the past that strums the music like you’ve never quite heard before.  Lori Hahnel has a similar gift to Lita’s; she knows how to turn nostalgia into unforgettable melody.”  — Vivian Hansen, author of  A Bitter Mood of Clouds and Leylines of My Flesh
