“Warm and hopeful, this marvelous debut stands next to novels from Catherine McKenzie and Carolyn Parkhurst.”

— Booklist (starred)

“Simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming, this hard-to-put-down, engrossing debut will have readers wondering until the very end. It examines life and death, despair and faith, parenthood and marriage, the choices we make, and, most of all, love ― making it a perfect choice for book clubs.”

— Library Journal (starred)

“Debut author Fabiaschi’s even tone and her characters’ bright intelligence inspire empathy . . . [and] explore the main theme: tragedy often has no reason, and those experiencing it must contend with the reasonlessness as well as the loss. . . . An earnest effort from a natural storyteller.”
