Review quote

2019 IPPY Silver Medal Winner in LGBTQ+ Non-Fiction "Reading First Signs of April is like sitting in front of a fire with an old friend: Briscoe starts telling her story and all of a sudden the sun is up and you feel as if you haven't blinked once. This book will become that friend who stays with you for life." --Melanie Braverman, author of East Justice and Red
"The First Signs of April is an inspiring story of about life, death, and how connected we all remain--but only if we're open to listening to the wisdom waiting for us. Mary-Elizabeth Briscoe shows us the power of friendship, and the ways we can heal by embracing all life has to offer. --Linda Joy Myers, president National Association of Memoir Writers, and author of Song of the Plains: A Memoir of Family Secrets and Silence
"By living and writing her truth, Briscoe shares her healing journey of loss and love. A compelling read that grabs your attention and will not let you leave." --Priscilla A. Hutchins, licensed Psychologist-Doctorate, retired
