From the first page, I was under Anna Solomon’s spell.

Sue Monk Kidd, New York Times bestselling author of The Invention of Wings

Anna Solomon writes with a poet's reverence for language and a novelist's ability to keep us turning the page.

J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author of Maine and The Engagements.

A piercing and often profound look at motherhood, what it is and isn’t, as well as the ways suffering makes and unmakes us all, sometimes many times over.

Paula McLain,  New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Wife and Circling the Sun

That rare combination of stunning language, raw emotion, and profound wisdom that catches you up and wrings you out and yet somehow leaves you fuller than when you began.

Celeste Ng, New York Times bestselling author of Everything I Never Told You

Chosen by TIME Magazine, InStyle, Good Housekeeping, The Millions, BookPage, and The Minneapolis Star-Tribune as a Must-Read book for Summer 2016
