About the Author

Barbara Conrey worked in the health care industry for many years before opting for an early retirement, which lasted all of three months. She then accepted a position in finance, for which she had absolutely no background, and four years later, she decided to write a book. But not about finance. Travel is her passion, along with reading, writing, hiking, and exploring antique shops. Her greatest love is Miss Molly, her rescue beagle. There are stories to be told about beagles, and Barbara hopes to incorporate some of them into her books. Barbara lives in Pennsylvania, close to family and friends.


Barbara Conrey asks what happens when a doctor's devotion to finding a cure for cancer competes against the expectations of motherhood. The answer is a story I will never forget. Emotional, heartbreaking, and hopeful, Nowhere Near Goodbye is an exciting debut in women's fiction.

Jennifer Klepper, USA Today Bestseller author of Unbroken Threads

The past verses the present. The desperate needs of a family going against the desperate needs of work. And secrets that could derail everything. Conrey's beautifully written novel probes the choices we make--and the choices we regret, and she does it with grace and aplomb. Caroline Leavitt, New York Times Bestselling author of Pictures of You and With or Without You

Conrey's NOWHERE NEAR GOODBYE is a deeply moving novel about family, how the past shapes us, and, ultimately forgiveness. Told with powerful prose, the author brings us into the lives of the richly developed characters with tenderness while bringing us on a heart-filled journey of love, loss, and the choices we make. Fierce and poignant, readers who love women's fiction and true-to-life stories should not miss this stunning debut. Samantha Verant, Author of The Secret French Recipes of Sophie Valroux

Emma Blake is a character not soon forgotten. NOWHERE NEAR GOODBYE is Emma's story, told with exceptional honesty and heart. Meticulously written, with powerful characters, this debut novel delves into friendship and family, deception and forgiveness, ultimately leading the reader to an emotional but satisfying conclusion. Rebecca Hodge, Author of Wild Land

Nowhere Near Goodbye examines the fraught balance of love and family versus drive and life purpose. Can women ever reconcile those choices and find peace in the necessary sacrifices, or forgive themselves for choosing, not putting family first?

Thoughtful women's fiction which poses those questions and will leave you pondering life's choices, in the best way. An emotional, thought-provoking, and poignant read. Lainey Cameron, Author of The Exit Strategy
