Praise for The Patron Saint of Pregnant Girls
"Mesmerizing...Hegi's command of the plot and ability to render poignant characters create a satisfyingly emotional story. Hegi's fans and devotees of literary fiction will treasure this."
--Julia Alvarez, author of In the Time of the Butterflies and Afterlife "The Patron Saint of Pregnant Girls is a novel full of marvels--children with missing fathers, girls too young to be mothers, nuns who cherish their charges, circus acrobats, the beautiful northern light--but the greatest marvel is Ursula Hegi's shimmering, radiant, vivid prose. Her characters, and their lives full of love and longing, leap off the page and into the reader's heart."
--Margot Livesey, author of Mercury and The Flight of Gemma Hardy
