Under copyright law, it is fair use to quote short passages in the context of
your original writing. You can also summarize the ideas in an original
manner. Ideas can't be copyrighted.
However, your contract with the publisher may not allow you to do this.
However, I bet the author would love the free publicity, so you might ask her.
