Dear Ms. Tanzman,

Thank you for your query. Your novel’s focus on the misunderstanding and injustice of the ‘refrigerator mother’ myth is a good idea, but I’m afraid the sample pages didn’t grab me enough to offer consideration of the full manuscript. Of course tastes vary widely among agents, and I wish you success in finding the right match for your work.

I found this quite helpful. I rewrote the novel after receiving this input. I was disappointed that she didn't ask for a re-submit. I recommend querying this agent.

Thank you for your email. I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work for possible representation, but I’m afraid I have decided to pass. Of course this is only one response, and tastes vary widely among agents. I wish you the best of luck finding the right home for your work.

After her request for a full mss, she passed, but wrote a thoughtful and helpful response. Really appreciated her taking the time to give me feedback.

Closed in August. Reopens in September. " She is looking for literary fiction, upmarket commercial fiction (contemporary and historical, American in particular), and narrative non-fiction. She is drawn to an authentic voice, unforgettable characters with an edge, and a well-crafted story that is emotional in unpredictable ways. "
