“Edgar and Lucy is about a terribly broken family that faces crisis after crisis yet never gives up trying to be a family. The main narrator is eight-year-old Edgar, a child brilliant beyond his years but who has a problem relating to almost everyone except his grandmother, Florence. Edgar's mother, Lucy, loves him in her own way but thanks to Florence, Lucy really doesn't need to make much of an effort. When Florence dies, everything changes. A stunning novel, dark at times, raw and bold, written with an uncanny feel for life and death, Edgar and Lucy kept me spellbound waiting for its conclusion but unwilling for the story to end.”

Summer 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List

“I adored every minute of Edgar & Lucy. The story is told from multiple perspectives, and each narrator is blinded in some way from understanding the full story—whether by youth, love, mental illness, grief, or alcoholism. Each voice, in turn, weaves an irresistible tale of the price we pay, and are willing to pay, to be completely in love—whether with a partner, a child, or a grandchild. Eight-year-old Edgar is the central character. I loved his voice instantly and was completely absorbed in and committed to his story from moment one. A great read for individuals and book clubs alike.”
— Jessica Fowle, Bookbug, Kalamazoo, MI
