Praise for The Valley and the Flood

★ ”In this ensnaring tale, debut author Mahoney strikes a flowing balance, weaving together suspense, connection, uncanniness, healing, devastation, and hope. Superb storytelling.” Kirkus, starred review

★ ”Mahoney has crafted a wholly unique world, replete with mysterious, otherworldly “neighbors” and a foreboding prophecy that Rose’s arrival in town willbring about an apocalyptic flood…[a] poignant exploration of emotion and trauma.” Booklist, starred review

“Debut author Mahoney deals with themes of grief and loss in a Twilight Zone setting…Part mystery, part thriller, part horror-lite.” School Library Journal

“Refreshingly, wholly original, The Valley and the Flood will haunt you long after you turn the final page. A beautiful triumph of a debut.” —Sarah Glenn Marsh, author of the Reign of the Fallen series

“Rebecca Mahoney weaves a tense and beautiful tale about the monsters we make and the memories that haunt us. With the looming threat of the Flood and a town full of secrets, this story grabbed hold of me and didn’t let go.” —Kate Alice Marshall, author of I Am Still Alive and Rules for Vanishing

“Mahoney meshes flashbacks and the present intricately and effectively, resulting in two equally dramatic narratives…Part allegory, part psychological thriller, this suspenseful debut is a moving study of grief, regret, and PTSD.” Publisher’s Weekly

“Strong and cinematic, and well worth going along with for the ride.” The Horn Book
