Reviews for THE LION IS IN by Delia Ephron:
"One of the sharpest observers of human behavior around, Ephron, with her trademark mastery of smart, snappy dialogue, delivers a read-in-one-sitting, feel-good celebration of resiliency and hope."

“Three women embark on a journey of self-discovery, facilitated by a giant feline, in Ephron’s whimsical but winsome third novel.”
—Kirkus Reviews  
“Imagine if Siegfried & Roy had written Water for Elephants … The Lion Is In is off to the races from the first sentence. [A] fun ride.”
—Tampa Bay Times
