Aviation journalist and author Colleen Mondor wrote a review of UNMENTIONABLES on her blog, “Chasing Ray.” Mondor enjoyed the novel and called it a “surprise,” explaining that:
I found a certain amount of “earthiness” to this novel–a perspective on life that reads very much about people most readers know and will recognize. I think I especially liked the history here though, how Lowenstein so effectively weaves bits about milk inspection and disease and racism and education into the overall story. This is how we live, after all, with so much big and small going on around us.
