Reviews

"Doesn't disappoint."--John Searles, on NBC's "Today"

"Fans of Goolrick's juicy debut novel A Reliable Wife--which spent 32 weeks on USA Today's Best-Selling Books list--can't wait for this follow-up."--USAToday.com

"Deliciously dark and dangerous."--O, The Oprah Magazine

"Within the heartbreak of this story, there is joy and beauty . . . In a year when so many of the books I've read have been lovely and memorable, Heading Out to Wonderful is my favorite. I could not possibly recommend it or any other book more highly."--Literate Housewife

"Goolrick spins out his tale like a mountain ballad . . . Dreamers like Charlie will still try to blunder on to wonderful, and they're the ones whom poets will sing about and old men will remember."
--Wilmington Star-News

"Robert Goolrick vividly evokes two lovers doomed by their place and their past."--Richmond Times-Dispatch

"[A] poetic tale that simmers with foreboding atmosphere."--Printers Row magazine, Chicago Tribune

"[An] unforgettable story of lost and displaced souls in search of identity, acceptance and belonging . . . Goolrick (A Reliable Wife) masterfully ratchets up the tension, while evocative sensory detail and spiritual overtones infuse the emotional landscape of a powerful, climactic novel that seeks to define and explore the meaning of love and goodness."--Shelf Awareness

"Robert Goolrick is a master of emotive, suspense-driven drama."--Flavorpill
