Reviews

"This story of two sisters...is as unflinching as it is compassionate. I was pulled in from the first page, as Trish and Mary reckon with the devastations of loss and the bonds of family, and as they make their hard, brave, often funny journeys toward hope and wholeness." -- Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of Falling Together

"An involving portrayal of the obstacles confronting today's families." -- Publishers Weekly

"...this delectable read is both irresistible and fulfilling...hope-filled, honest and remarkably raw tour-de-force. Things We Didn't Say is a beautiful account of modern family that resonates, restores and charms." -- examiner.com

"Backed by Riggle's trademark unflinching honesty and imbued with heart and hope, The Life You've Imagined is a terrific novel about love and loss, letting go and holding on. A book to share with family and friends--I loved it." -- Melissa Senate, author of The Secret of Joy

"An entertaining, challenging story with the potential to change us if we let it." -- Grand Rapids Press

"A seemingly celebratory gathering brings joy, frustration, love and disappointment to a midwestern family in this wonderful debut novel. These are characters we know and care about from our own lives." -- Denise Taylor, manager, Schuler Books and Music

"Riggle crafts a moving and accomplished first novel about a family coming to terms with change. The characters are familiar but not stereotypical, and the quaint setting of Charlevoix, Michigan, a beachfront town, adds to the nostalgic feel." -- Booklist on Real Life & Liars

"Kristina Riggle addresses the difficult turf of the hoarder with compassion and understanding. With its contrasting sisters-one unable to let go of things, the other unable to allow clutter into her life-Keepsake immerses us in the complicated world of family and love." -- Meg Waite Clayton, bestselling author of The Four Ms. Bradwells and The Wednesday Sisters

"Touching and timely" -- Publishers Weekly
