Praise

A timeless and timely look at small town life….Morris’ page-turner, (which evokes To Kill a Mockingbird) will satisfy her fans and send new readers searching for her earlier titles.”–The Washington Post

“Morris’ finely crafted prose—simple and lyrical—captures perfectly that sliver of pre-adolescence when the very world around us seems to shudder and shift, when the adults we admire suddenly reveal their flaws, and everything we treasure seems to be slipping away.”–Associated Press

“A timeless and timely look at small town life….Morris’ page-turner, (which evokes To Kill a Mockingbird) will satisfy her fans and send new readers searching for her earlier titles.”–Publishers Weekly 

“Mary McGarry Morris doesn’t so much tell a story as spin a delicate and powerful web. With her elegant prose, beautifully drawn characters, and perfect pitch dialog, she lured me in.  And with her intense and gripping plot, she had me ensnared.  I was in love with the sensitive, smart and plucky Nellie from the very first moment I met her and I’ll be thinking of her for a good long time.  Light From a Distant Star is a wonderful, powerful novel not to be missed.”–Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of Fragile

“Literary accolades, film adaptations, praise from Oprah—Andover’s Mary McGarry Morris has earned them all for her suspenseful novels focused on small-town life.”–Boston Magazine

“It’s impossible to set aside “Light From a Distant Star” once you begin…a riveting read.”–Washington Missourian
