"The Shift is a travel story that leaves you feeling like you’ve been on a trip to Scotland, and experienced a journey of self discovery too. You won’t be done thinking about the story when you close the cover."
"A meaningful story with lovely descriptions of beautiful Scotland. Honest and vibrant; puts you in her boots and in her heart."
"Jamison paints a beautifully magical portrait of her time and transformation during an escape to her ancestral land of Scotland. With rich imagery and depth of feeling, she transports the reader to her life of both the mundane and experiences of wonder. It left me wanting much more, and I hope she continues the story!"
