_x000D_ "Joining the long history of women of color fighting to claim literary space to tell our stories, Sherry Quan Lee shares her truth with fierce_x000D_ courage and strength in Love Imagined. ... Quan Lee crafts a riveting tale of Minnesota life set within the backdrop of racial segregation, _x000D_ the Cold War, the sexual revolution while navigating it all through the lens of her multi-layered identities. A true demonstration of the _x000D_ power of an intersectional perspective."
_x000D_ --Kandace Creel Falcon, Ph.D., Director of Women's and Gender Studies, Minnesota State University, Moorhead

_x000D_ " Love Imagined : this fascinating, delightful, important book. This imagining love, this longing for love. This poverty of No Love, _x000D_ this persistent racism, sexism, classism, ageism. The pain these evils cause the soul...This is an important document of a mixed-race _x000D_ contemporary woman, a memoir about her family lineages back to slavery, back to China, back to early Minneapolis, and about the struggle of _x000D_ finding herself in all of these."
_x000D_ --Sharon Doubiago, author of My Father's Love

_x000D_ "When I read Sherry's story [ Love Imagined ], I recognized feelings and meanings that mirrored mine. I felt a sense of release, an exhale, and _x000D_ I knew I could be understood by her in a way that some of my family and friends are unable to grasp, through no fault of their own. It's the _x000D_ Mixed experience. Sherry Lee's voice, her story, will no doubt touch and heal many who read it."
_x000D_ --Lola Osunkoya, MA Founder of Neither/Both LLC, Mixed-Race Community Building and Counseling
