"A reflective, witty, and fun story that elegantly crosses genres and addresses intriguing themes."
--Kirkus Reviews

"...a page-turner. I found I could not put it down until I had reached the end. It makes you think about how you are handling your life and if you are stagnating because you are too afraid to take a chance. I enjoyed reading this book from the first page to the last and found the ending the best, due to the fact that I had started rooting early for the main characters"
--Readers' Favorite 5-star review

"A heartfelt journey of two lost souls finding grace . . . and each other. Waterbury Winter is a must-read for anyone who believes in second chances and the power of kindness--or who wants to believe in them. This is one of those books that, when you have to put it down, you can't wait to pick it up again."
--Donna Cameron, Nautilus Award-winning author of A Year of Living Kindly: Choices that Will Change Your Life and the World Around You

"Waterbury Winter is a heart-warming story of loss and love, challenge and resistance, and the power of creative expression. Henley's masterful descriptions of character and place make these pages the perfect spot to hang out. Readers will make themselves at home, cheer for the protagonist, Barnaby, and be totally charmed by his opinionated parrot, Popsicle."
--Romalyn Tilghman, award-winning author of To the Stars Through Difficulties

"A tour de force reminiscent of A Man Called Ove. Barnaby Brown's interactions and experiences unfold in such a way as to endear him to the reader. He's not perfect, but his imperfections are what reveal his gentle and generous spirit, and we root for him at every upturn and downturn. Waterbury Winter is a memorable masterpiece."
--Saralyn Richard, award-winning author of the Detective Parrott mystery series and A Murder of Principal

"Linda Henley manages to combine drama, romance, humor, and even an art theft mystery in the highly entertaining Waterbury Winter. The novel introduces us to Barnaby Brown, an artist who is so down on his luck there's no farther to slide. Through fast-paced writing and a series of remarkable plot twists, Henley constantly surprises the reader as Barnaby (accompanied by his faithful parrot, Popsicle) stumbles mightily in his efforts to redeem himself and become the man he wants to be. A many-layered novel, Waterbury Winter is, above all, a moving tribute to the healing power of art."
--Laurel Davis Huber, award-winning author of The Velveteen Daughter

"A heartwarming and uplifting rediscovery of life . . . and at the end of the day a wonderful read . . . I already have a few people in mind to recommend this book to."

--Book Club Belles

". . . a story of hope, strength, love, and believing in yourself . . . a heartwarming story that will captivate you until the very end . . ."

--Literary Titan

"I found myself rooting for the main character, Barnaby. I wanted him to do well and to find his place."

--Brandy Bower, Watermark Book Company
