Reviews

"Overwhelmingly moving . . . In this novel, where so much is about what vanishes, there is also a deep beating heart, of what also stays."--The New York Times Book Review

"Stunning . . . The matriarchal theme [is] at the heart of Miller's Valley. Miriam pushes her smart daughter to consider college, and other women--a teacher, a doctor, a benefactor--will raise Mimi up past the raging waters that swirl in her heart."--The Washington Post

"Economical and yet elegant . . . [Anna Quindlen's] storytelling and descriptive powers make Miller's Valley compelling. . . . Miller's Valley has a geography and fate all its own but its residents, realities, disappointments, joys and cycle of life feel familiar, in the best way possible."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"A family story with humor, surprise, sorrow and mystery . . . Quindlen has created distinctive characters, none of whom seems like anyone you've met before in fiction."--The Columbus Dispatch

"A breathtakingly moving look at a family."--USA Today

"[Anna] Quindlen's provocative novel will have you flipping through the pages of your own family history and memories even as you can't stop reading about the Millers. . . . a coming-of-age story that reminds us that the past continues to wash over us even as we move away from the places and events that formed us."--Chicago Tribune

"Picking up a novel by Anna Quindlen means more than just meeting a new family--it's like moving in and pretending they are yours. It's a rare gift for a writer, and Quindlen does it to near perfection."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Quindlen's novel of a childhood examined by someone who literally can't go home again is an incredibly engaging read. . . . Miller's Valley takes familiar themes and manages to make them fresh and new."--Bust

Praise for the bestselling fiction of
Anna Quindlen


"Anna Quindlen knows that all the things we will ever be can be found in some forgotten fragment of family."--The Washington Post, about Object Lessons

"There comes a moment in every novelist's career when she . . . ventures into new territory, breaking free into a marriage of tone and style, of plot and characterization, that's utterly her own. Anna Quindlen's marvelous romantic comedy of manners is just such a book. . . . Quindlen has delivered a novel that will have staying power all its own."--The New York Times Book Review, about Still Life with Bread Crumbs

"Anna Quindlen writes about family with all the humanity, wit, and pain of going home."--Wendy Wasserstein, about One True Thing

"Anna Quindlen is America's resident Sane Person. She has what Joyce called the common touch, the ability to speak to many people about what's on their minds before they have the vaguest idea what's on their minds."--The New York Times, about Blessings

"Quindlen knows words, and she knows women."--More, about Rise and Shine

"Quindlen's writing . . . wraps the reader in the warmth and familiarity of domestic life."--The Seattle Times, about Every Last One
