Publisher Description

When Eden was ten years old she found her father, David, bleeding out on the bathroom floor. The suicide attempt led to her parents’ divorce, and David all but vanished from Eden’s life. Since childhood, she has heard from him only rarely, just enough to know he’s been living on the streets and struggling with mental illness. But lately, there has been no word at all.

Now in her thirties, Eden decides to go look for her father, so she can forgive him at last and finally move forward. When her search uncovers other painful truths—not only the secrets her mother has kept from her but also the agonizing question of whether David, after all these years, even wants to be found—Eden is forced to decide just how far she’ll go in the name of love.

Quotes

  • “Like a gorgeous dark jewel, Hatvany’s novel explores the tragedy of a mind gone awry, a tangled bond of father and daughter, and the way hope and love sustain us. It does what the best fiction does: it makes us see and experience the world differently.”

    - Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You
  • “A palpable love story, emotional search for and acceptance of a lost parent, and a bittersweet ending make for an enveloping, heartfelt read.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Compelling…a fascinating look at mental illness—the exuberance and self-loathing, creativity, and destruction that then reverberate against the lives of family and loved ones.”

    - Juliette Fay, author of Shelter Me

About the Author

Amy Hatvany graduated with a degree in sociology only to discover most sociologists are unemployed. She took a variety of jobs, some of which she loved, like decorating wedding cakes, and others which she merely tolerated, like being a receptionist. In 1998 she decided to sell her car, quit her job, and take a chance on her passion of writing books. Her background in sociology inspires and informs much of her writing as she tackles timely and controversial issues in her novels including mental illness, domestic abuse, and alcoholism. She lives in Seattle with her husband and children.
