Review in Midwest Book Reviews  July 2020:  “Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, “Unlocking: A Memoir of Family and Art” is an inherently interesting and engaging life story told with an impressive composure and candor. Ultimately inspired and inspiring, “Unlocking: A Memoir of Family and Art” is an especially and unreservedly recommended addition to both community and academic library Contemporary American Biography collections.”

Kirkus Reviews said of Unlocking: “This is a woman of extraordinary passion and enormous energies. The test of a person (and for that matter, a marriage) is how the individual handles and overcomes the challenges of life. Pressly time and again passes the test with flying colors in this candid memoir. A side benefit: the illuminating chapters devoted to her thoughts on what it means to experience great works of art. (The volume features copious illustrations, both art plates and family photos.) In Florence, she admired Jacopo Pontormo’s “enigmatic, strange, and beautiful” painting Deposition From the Cross (1526-28): “I was absolutely stunned by the intense, almost strident, pastel colors of the drapery, which in places clung so tightly to the grieving figures as to appear translucent.” The author is a truly marvelous guide on a tour literally around the world, insisting that art reproductions in books are a poor second to the insitu experience that she convincingly describes as life changing.”
