Product description

Review

[A] portrait of people coming to terms with their lives, finding unsuspected nobility in themselves and unexpected kindness in others along the way. Elizabeth Strout has written a gem of a novel.

-- "Amazon.com, editorial review"

An expansiveness and inventiveness that is the mark of a true storyteller.

-- "Philadelphia Inquirer"

An exquisitely nuanced exploration of the complex relationship between a single mother and her teenage daughter.

-- "Barnes & Noble, editorial review"

One of those rare, invigorating books that take an apparently familiar world and peer into it with ruthless intimacy, revealing a strange and startling place.

-- "New York Times Book Review"

Strout demonstrates exceptional poise, and an uncommon ability to render complex emotions with clarity and a sympathetic intelligence, evoking comparisons with the work of Alice Munro and Anne Tyler.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Strout's insights into the complex psychology between [mother and daughter] result in a poignant tale about two coming of age.

-- "Time"

This is a beautifully written novel with characters so real that readers will miss them at the book's resolute ending. Their interactions are riveting.

-- "Library Journal"
