Reviews

"Radiant and brilliantly crafted. Napolitano's work . . . resists the easy satisfactions of the sentimental and never settles for simple answers to emotional predicaments faced by her characters."--The New York Times Book Review

"Another tender tearjerker . . . Napolitano chronicles life's highs and lows with aching precision. In her piercingly tender new novel, Hello Beautiful, best-selling author Ann Napolitano catalogues the multitudes of love and hurt that families contain, and lays bare their powers to both damage and heal. Hello Beautiful will make you weep buckets because you come to care so deeply about the characters and their fates. [Napolitano] compels us to contemplate the complex tapestry of family love that can, despite grief and loss, still knit us together. She helps us see ourselves--and each other--whole."--The Washington Post

"This powerfully affecting novel illustrates [that] love and luck don't always intertwine."--People

"This sumptuous family saga is one of those rare novels whose singular characters are so beautifully rendered, it's as if they're your best friends, and you're grateful to be in their orbit. Napolitano's homage to Little Women, albeit set in late-20thcentury Chicago, will prompt you to slow down as you read, never wanting the book to end. When it does, prepare for tears."--Oprah Quarterly

"Ann Napolitano's new novel, Hello Beautiful, is exactly that: beautiful, perceptive, wistful. It's a story of family and friendship, of how the people we are bound to can also set us free. I loved it."--Miranda Cowley Heller, New York Times bestselling author of The Paper Palace

"A rich, complex family saga, Hello Beautiful is a portrait of love and grief in equal measure. Napolitano's prose is so lovely, so keenly perceptive, that it held me captive until I finished. A lot of people are going to love this story."--Mary Beth Keane, New York Times bestselling author of Ask Again, Yes

"Hello Beautiful is a profoundly moving and propulsive novel about the deepest connections of family and love, trauma and healing. In intricately elegant prose, Ann Napolitano explores both the cost and power of loyalty and honesty. This is a book to treasure and share with friends and loved ones."--Angie Kim, bestselling author of Miracle Creek

"Hello Beautiful is the work of a great author at the height of her powers. Equally immersive, emotional, and brilliantly crafted, this is an early contender for best novel of the year."--J. Ryan Stradal, New York Times bestselling author of Kitchens of the Great Midwest

"This is a story about family and sisters and storytelling, but it's also an examination of identity and the consequences of doing love badly and how love can be redeemed. Read this book! You'll be glad you did."--Therese Anne Fowler, New York Times bestselling author of It All Comes Down to This

"This is a richly woven story about family, but it's also a unique take on Little Women. There are no heroes or villains here, only people--flawed and loving and striving like the rest of us. 'Generosity' is the word that comes to mind when I reflect on this gorgeous novel."--Allegra Goodman, New York Times bestselling author of The Cookbook Collector and Sam
