"Fusing memoir and research, Wendy Bilen goes back into the past and brings back news about her family that enlivens the present. That's my definition of history." Alan Cheuse, novelist and critic

"'Finding Josie' by Wendy Bilen is a thoughtfully written and thought provoking book. It is both a biography of the author’s grandmother, Josie Broadhead, and a journey with the author as she discovers much about herself while finding Josie and sharing her life. A truly Midwestern story, the power of place and family are explored by an honest and gifted author. Josie and Wendy's intertwined stories make a lovely read I found both challenging and comforting." Jane Funni, Book Vault Bookshop, Oskaloosa, Iowa
