Reviews

Sensitively plumbing the complexity of human emotions, of love and forgiveness, [Maynard] draws readers into a deep, aching attachment to her characters, creating an ultimately hopeful tale just right for this moment. --Booklist (starred review)
"How did Maynard know that this is exactly the book we all need now? This exhilaratingly brilliant novel isn't just an indelible story of the falling dominoes of a family struggling through crisis and through generations, it's also about the times we live through. . . . This gorgeous story reminds us that love is always, always worth it."--Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You and With or Without You
"My to-do list had umpteen items on it, but I let them all go to hell as I tore through Joyce Maynard's latest page-turner. . . . To-do list? What to-do list? Under the Influence is a riveting read."--New York Times bestselling author Wally Lamb on Under the Influence
"Joyce Maynard has, again, managed to tap flawlessly into the voice of a teenage girl: part hope, part fiction, and all heart. After Her is page-turning mystery, wrapped in a beautifully rendered story of sisterhood; and reading it is a journey through one's own memory of what it meant to be thirteen, when the world was equally terrifying and fascinating. Books this compelling just don't come around very often."--Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author on After Her
"Count the Ways is an extraordinarily generous invitation into a woman's intimate life, from the loneliness of her youth to the earned wisdom of middle age. In this richly imagined novel, Maynard never flinches as she portrays both quiet successes and heartbreaking failures at love, marriage, and motherhood. This is the work of one of our great storytellers."--Meredith Hall, New York Times bestselling author of Beneficence
"Joyce Maynard is the queen of the family saga, and Count the Ways is the best! Instantly addicting, the story of Eleanor, Cam, and their children pulls you in and wraps itself around you like an heirloom quilt made of familiarity, intimacy, and the orchestral complexity of loving the people closest to us. This is the novel you'll be longing to return to at the end of every day and one you will re-read for years to come."--Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Save Us and The Lost Family
The novel bites off a lot--a Brett Kavanaugh-inspired storyline, a domestic abuse situation, a trans child, Eleanor's career--and manages to resolve them all. . . Maynard creates a world rich and real enough to hold the pain she fills it with.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Count the Ways is the book you will want to curl up in a chair and read from beginning to end. It's rich and complex, beautiful and heartbreaking, just like life. Reading about this flawed and lovely family will make you want to hug your own flawed and lovely family tight. Joyce Maynard celebrates the messy, wonderful thing that is love.--Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle and The Book That Matters Most
Readers will sink into Maynard's masterful portrait of one woman's life in this decades-spanning family saga.--Readers will sink into Maynard's masterful portrait of one woman's life in this decades-spanning family saga.--Library Journal (starred review)
