“What a visually rich book; the collage work is stunning. And the writing will rip your heart out as you identify with many of the emotions in this beautifully written book. I highly recommend this book to everyone that would like to take an intuitive life journey with this debut author! We are sure to see her again and again.” – AMAZON
“When a stranger sitting next to me on a plane looked over and saw me reading Return to Sender, he was struck by the power of the illustrations presented. The writing matches the intensity of the images with the writer getting so personal that it’s almost uncomfortable! A well-done release from a talented young illustrator/author. Hoping to see much more from Samantha Castoro.” – AMAZON
“What a wonderful and thought provoking book. It is the type of book you need to stop and think about, but at the same time cannot wait to read the next story. I am sure everyone will relate to one or more of the stories. Samantha Castoro writes in a very raw, real and emotional way. Highly recommend and would be perfect for discussions at a book club.” – AMAZON
“This book is fascinating. This young woman has hit the proverbial nail on the head in so many emotions. I have recommended this book to everybody.” – AMAZON
