"This standout novel. . . highlighted by fine prose and finely drawn characters. . . reaches into the heart of a long, complicated friendship, and the result is a skilled combination of a missing-person mystery and a sentimental reminiscence."--Publishers Weekly
"A steady, cool, thoughtful novel. . . a meditation on loyalty, friendship, and the geometry of human interconnection."--Kirkus Reviews
"Rosalind Brackenbury knows how to grab her reader by the throat and hang on for dear life. Without Her is a smart, sexy, mysterious and utterly compelling novel."--Lee Smith, author of The Last Girls
"In Rosalind Brackenbury's fine new novel, two long-term lovers search for a friend who has disappeared and find that death can be a kind of victory. I enjoyed and admired it."--Alison Lurie, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Foreign Affairs and The Language of Houses
"A beautiful iteration of two levels of the coming of age story. Young girls advance from childhood to adulthood, then confront the more difficult passage to old age and death. Brackenbury's pointillist evocation of Paris and Provence makes the landscape a third character in this moving and memorable drama."--Michael Mewshaw, author of The Lost Prince
"Rosalind Brackenbury deserves major attention for her major accomplishments. She keeps turning out beautifully written, smart, absorbing novels that satisfy me in every way. One is better than the next and Without Her, about love and friendship changing with age, is her best."--Phyllis Rose, author of The Shelf: From LEQ to LES: Adventures in Extreme Reading
"Suspenseful yet thoughtful, and profoundly engaging, Rosalind Brackenbury's Without Her takes readers on a journey into betrayal, romance, art and heartbreak, the tale of a friendship enduring against all odds and a love affair put to the ultimate test. Without Her will hold readers hostage to the very last page."--Diana Abu-Jaber, author of Birds of Paradise
