Reviews
"The Clover House is a gripping, tender story that spans continents and generations as it delves into the secrets of a Greek American family altered by a long-ago tragedy in World War II. Told with quiet power and authenticity, it's a reader's treat."--Kate Alcott, New York Times bestselling author of The Dressmaker

"[An] insightful examination of memory and the stories that hold us together--or perhaps tear us apart."--The Boston Globe

"A rare treat: an elegantly written debut about a family mystery set during wartime, the slipperiness of memory, and the challenges of forgiveness. Plus, we get to go to Greece! What more could you want from a novel? Read it, read it!"--Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Save Us

"A powerful story of family, betrayal, and forgiveness . . . In her first novel, [Lazaridis] melds the stories of mother and daughter into an absorbing tale that deserves to rank high on the list of women's fiction."--Booklist

"Layered and complex, The Clover House is a provocative examination of family secrets and the things we inherit, a powerful search for self that feels both unique and universal. Henriette Lazaridis immerses the reader in a world of tradition and resilience, creating characters who linger long beyond their final pages. This is one of the best books I've read in a long time."--Brunonia Barry, New York Times and internationally bestselling author of The Lace Reader and The Map of True Places

"Well-paced and filled with likable, plausibly flawed characters."--Kirkus Reviews

"The Clover House is a tremendously readable story of how family secrets reverberate, how war can force impossible choices, and how a very modern woman faces old longings for her mother's love and a true home. This is a smart and lovely novel."--Holly Lecraw, author of The Swimming Pool
