Poignant ... A powerfully affecting story about our capacity to hurt the people around us and our imperfect attempts to bridge the divides between ourselves and our loved ones * Herald *
As a storm threatens a Boston river suburb, a group of friends and strangers provides a moving look at the ties that connect people * People *
While the world and weather carry on, indifferent to lives left in ruins, or why, Ethan Hauser's network of people enact the many permutations of love - the difficulty of needing it, finding it, hanging onto it and, perhaps most curious of all, avoiding it when it arrives inconveniently. In every way this is a love story, and beautifully faithful to rendering it whole * Antonya Nelson, author of Bound *
Ethan Hauser's powers of compassion and observation are remarkable; each life in this richly layered narrative is rendered with sensitivity, attention, and insight. Most striking of all is how he brings these disparate lives together, revealing how profoundly we are shaped by the forces of family, love and inevitable change * Sarah Shun-lien Bynum, National Book Award finalist and author of Ms Hempel Chronicles *
