The BookViral Review:

A carefully observed and perceptive study of people following their dreams in the only way they know how Resolutions: A Family In Stories proves a genuine treasure of a read with Knox treading close to the stuff of life itself. To the way in which the majority of us struggle and make do, compromise some of our dreams and insist on the others.

Far too many authors substitute plot for the fascinations of life but Knox isn’t one of those. Here she gets a sublime balance, capturing the smallest details and giving us such a strong sense of her characters that each of her ‘stories’ are alive with possibility. Through Jasmine and Molly May, in particular, we come to realize that people – when they change, do so in small almost imperceptible ways and that what we see is often misconstrued.

Some of the best novels are like this. They show their characters in everyday life, stripped of a saccharin coating, and as we come to know them we maybe find out something about ourselves. “I want you both to read The Power of Personal Leadership—a great book!” says Jasmine, “I just finished it, and it lays out the whole truth of our existence. It says that if you do not act on the ideas you have, you might as well not have them at all.” And for many readers, this will be the crux of Knox’s story.

Emotionally powerful, with scenes that weep with pain Knox’s affection for her characters shines through to deliver an exceptional read and Resolutions: A Family In Stories is recommended without reservation.
