“The great thing about Nora, the titular 'thinking woman' is that she is completely relatable. Nora, a perennial graduate student who hasn't made the best romantic choices, lands in another world that is rife with medieval attitudes toward women. She brings an analytical eye to a highly stratified, low-tech, but magical world and by speaking truth to power she learns new lessons about herself. This beautifully written first novel reverberates with echoes of fairy tales and fantasy literature from Narnia to Harry Potter.”
— Tonie Lilley, The Regulator Bookshop, Durham, NC
