Product Details


“[A] light, fun story…this adorable tale will put a smile on your face.”—Good Housekeeping

“This feel-good novel features a prim, rather stubborn 86-year-old British heroine named Veronica McCreedy, who will steal your heart….A fun read that brings to mind Maria Semple’s 2012 best seller, Where’d You Go, Bernadette? — because of its humor as well as its fleeing-to-Antarctica theme — and a heartwarming tonic for troubled times.”—AARP

“A warm and witty journey of self-discovery. Prior proves that it’s never too late to become the person you were meant to be. But it might require a trip to Antarctica. And penguins.”—Wendy Wax, USA Today bestselling author of My Ex-Best Friend’s Wedding
“Veronica McCreedy is an unforgettable heroine. Crotchety, clever and oddly lovable, she kept me turning pages well into the night. Prior has given us a story of love, loss, forgiveness, and the unlikely bonds that form when we least expect it. Humorous and true with finely-drawn characters.”—Elyssa Friedland, author of The Floating Feldmans
“A beautiful expedition into Antarctica, but more importantly, the human heart. Hazel Prior has written a sweet and timely story about how one cranky old woman is no match for a tiny, adorable penguin chick.”—Brooke Fossey, author of The Big Finish

Praise for Ellie and the Harpmaker

“Uplifting escapism…fresh and sweet…Prior’s lyricism feels like a warm song.”–The Washington Post

“How I loved this book! An uncommonly lovely story told with elegance, insight, and so much heart. Hazel Prior’s brilliant debut will delight.”–Kristan Higgins, New York Times bestselling author of Life and Other Inconveniences

“A beautiful love song of a story, wonderfully told with a warm heart and much hope. Hazel Prior’s writing is a lyrical delight.”–Phaedra Patrick, international bestselling author of The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

“Ellie and Dan, both delightful, down-to-earth characters, selflessly put each other’s needs ahead of their own, and fans of fast-paced romantic stories will enjoy watching them discover true happiness together.”–Publishers Weekly

“With the character-driven charm of Liane Moriarty’s and Sara Baume’s novels…. Delightfully heartwarming….Guaranteed to tug at readers’ heartstrings.”–Booklist
