Product Details


“I was immediately captivated by The Book of Essie, a unique and moving story about a young woman whose life has been hijacked by fame, family and faith–and her spectacular, surprising plot to take it back.” –Vanessa Diffenbaugh, bestselling author of The Language of Flowers and We Never Asked for Wings

“Every once in a while, a novel comes along that is both timelessly beautiful and unbelievably timely. The Book of Essie is such a story. Meghan MacLean Weir has given us a young heroine who is at once authentic and courageous — and a tale that is wonderful and mysterious and relentlessly surprising.”  —Chris Bohjalian, bestselling author of Midwives and The Flight Attendant

“The youngest daughter of an Evangelical preacher-turned-reality TV star hatches a plan to wrangle her freedom—and expose the dark truth about her family—in Weir’s debut novel… Deeply sympathetic… well-paced… and the unexpected tenderness between Essie and Roarke gives the novel genuine emotional punch.” Kirkus

“Topical… Essie’s father may be a famous evangelical preacher, but her ruthless mother, Celia, runs the family empire from behind the scenes. When her family discovers Essie is pregnant, it’s decided that she should marry, but whom?… Weir’s narrative features some finely nuanced characters… An incisive novel.” Publishers Weekly
