“Lesser has reached into the center of her soul to write a book rich with love—love that is just as equally weighted by realism and as it is lightened by mysticism. It is real love: powerful and transformative. Marrow is truly a beautiful book, and an important one.” (Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times best-selling author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic)
"No one truth-tells with more soul and tenacity. Lesser’s courage is contagious.” (Brené Brown, Ph.D. Author of the New York Times #1 Bestseller, Rising Strong)
