Advance praise for The Nearness of You

"[For] readers who like stories about competent people facing tough choices, like those from Jodi Picoult or Julie Lawson Timmer."--Booklist

"The Nearness of You includes everything I love about Amanda Eyre Ward's books: edgy eloquence, ingenious plotting, and relationships that are never, not for a single paragraph, simple or predictable. Through Suzette, Dorrie, Hyland, and Jayne, Ward reveals parenthood as an enterprise that is as wrenching as it is beautiful. You will love these characters and this book."--Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of The Precious One

"Deftly paced and enthralling, Amanda Eyre Ward's The Nearness of You takes on the complexity of what it means to be a mother, and provides insights both heartening and harrowing."--Mira Jacob, author of The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing

"The Nearness of You is not just an arresting meditation on motherhood but also an exploration of how we can seize the lives we've been given and transform them into the lives we want to live. Like all of Ward's novels, this book's intrigue and charm demand that it be indulged in a single sitting."--Vendela Vida, author of The Diver's Clothes Lie Empty
