"Why would a thirtysomething modern woman give up sex? At the heart of The Thrill of the Chaste is this mystery story which as it unfolds reveals our deep human longing for a love that matters, for a sexual union that is real. A brave, beautiful book."
Maggie Gallagher, President, Institute for Marriage and nationally syndicated columnist"

"Eden is fearless about sharing details of her personal life so that others might learn from her mistakes. Her story, told with breezy wit and peppered with literary and pop-culture references, makes for an eye-opening and persuasive witness."
Robyn Lee, National Catholic Register

"The Thrill of the Chaste is a book by one who has been there.  It's a book for anybody who has the brains to see that America's present sexual ethos is a con job resulting in a herd of isolated ciphers all alike in their loneliness and sense of exploitation.  Dawn Eden knows that the only really exciting, love-filled, and happy life is one that embraces Chesterton's great battle cry, 'Break the conventions! Keep the Commandments!'"
Mark P. Shea, Senior Content Editor,

"I can't say I agree with everything in it or 100% with the overall message, but there were some parts of it that I really liked and related to, especially the chapter on 'Becoming a Singular Sensation.' As a single woman myself, Dawn's given me a lot to think about."
Rachel Kramer Bussel, author and Village Voice "Lusty Lady" columnist

"BUY THIS BOOK! So much more hip than 'Sex And The City'... Dawn Eden takes you on a journey that delivers far more than it promises. Not only does Eden deliver a truth-based foundation for what single women are ultimately looking for, she does so in an ever-so-New York, transparency that shows she has nothing to hide. Dawn's advice to the single woman in today's world is laced with grit you will not find anywhere else. I know, because single women call my show everyday looking for the wisdom that Eden dispenses! With better writing and far more spunk than Carrie Bradshaw, Eden proves a worldview based in unrelenting honesty is the only true way to find out for herself what a woman truly needs! Buy a copy of this book for every single woman you know. They will thank you for it!"
Kevin McCullough, award- winning talk-show host, WMCA-AM 570, New York City, and author, MuscleHead Revolution

"A remarkable record of conversion, written by New York's hippest downtown scripture-quoting blog darling. Move over, St. Augustine!"
