Product Details

Praise

“Powerful. . . . Unique and unflinching.” —Bustle

Age of Consent is spellbinding.” Whitney Otto, author of Eight Girls Taking Pictures 

“Powerful. . . . Absorbing and timely.” —New York Journal of Books
 
“This thrilling novel forces us to ask to whom do we owe our loyalties—to those we love, or to ourselves.” —Mary Morris, author of The Jazz Palace

“Leimbach’s structure is brilliant. . . The power and beauty of Leimbach’s writing is a balm even in the story’s darkest moments.” The Connecticut Post

“A nuanced portrayal of a mother and daughter at once linked and divided by a ferociously exploitative man. . . . The novel brings memorable depth to issues often oversimplified; Leimbach’s scenes are convincing, whether they portray harrowing abuse or subtle moments of healing.” —Publishers Weekly

“An account of estrangement between mother and daughter and the toll abuse can take on a family. Told partly through flashback and partly through court testimony, this unhappy tale is woven with pain and fractured relationships. . . . The story will keep readers turning pages until the bitter end.”  Library Journal

“Leimbach is known for tackling tough subjects in an unflinching manner, and this novel is no exception. . . . Readers who enjoy issue-driven women’s fiction—and who can handle the dark subject matter—will be moved by Bobbie’s story.” —Booklist (starred review)
