"Picks you up and sweeps you away until you're completely intoxicated by its magic. Life-affirming, thought-provoking, heart-warming, it's one of those books which―if you happen to read it exactly when you need to―will heal your wounds as you turn the pages." ―Catriona McPherson, Agatha, Anthony, Macavity, and Bruce Alexander-winning author
"Prolific mystery writer Lourey tells of a matriarchal clan of witches joining forces against age-old evil...The novel is tightly plotted, and Lourey shines when depicting relationships--romantic ones as well as tangled links between Catalains...Lourey emphasizes the ties that bind in spite of secrets and resentment." ―Kirkus Reviews
"Lourey expertly concocts a Gothic fusion of long-held secrets, melancholy, and resolve...Exquisitely written in naturally flowing, expressive language, the book delves into the special relationships between sisters, and mothers and daughters." ―Publishers Weekly
"The Catalain Book of Secrets opens with a bang and keeps on firing off the unexpected. Think Charles deLint or Alice Hoffman...spell-binding!" ―Midwest Book Review
