Reviews
Praise for House of Wonder

"With keen insight and rare emotional truth, Sarah Healy hits every mark with House of Wonder. It's funny, sad, hopeful, and heartbreaking and filled with characters that stick with you and make you care. If you've ever known an outsider or an oddball--or been one--this is a novel for you." --Augusten Burroughs, New York Times bestselling author of Running with Scissors and Sellevision.

"An emotionally gripping tale of love, loss, and the universal convolutions of family. [Healy] paints her characters into life until you feel as if you've known them forever. I savored every delicious subtlety."--Emily Liebert, author of You Knew Me When

"Shows how family ties tend to worm their way from matters of obligation to matters of the heart, quickly and completely. The delicious dips into family history and the complex relationships in this book are as lovely as they are deep."--Jennifer Scott, author of The Sister Season and The Accidental Book Club

"Kept me reading late into the night, wondering how things would work out for these endearing characters. For fans of contemporary fiction and anyone who enjoys well-drawn characters who are much like people you know."--Concord Monitor (New Hampshire)

"Fans of Beth Harbison and Nancy Thayer will appreciate this tender, emotional portrait of a modern family."--Booklist

"Shifting admirably between the hidden past and the uncomfortably exposed present, Healy creates a believable and poignant portrait of a unique family grappling to understand itself and its role in a largely unimaginative world."--Kirkus

"Touching, funny, and full of heart. A highly entertaining novel about love and family, secrets and forgiveness."--New York Times Bestselling Author Lisa Scottoline
