The Far End of Happy: Heartbreaking and suspenseful contemporary fiction
The Far End of Happy: Heartbreaking and suspenseful contemporary fiction
by Kathryn Craft
Edition: Paperback
Price: $11.68
98 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars The Far End of Happy is haunting and real, May 5, 2015
The Far End of Happy is haunting and real. The circumstances simply unfold, happening to people who could be your neighbors, perhaps even you, the magnitude occurring to them as it occurs to the reader-that makes it all the more powerful. Real. You cannot help but stand right there with Ronnie. You cannot help but feel her pain, as well as the pain, confusion and dashed hopes of the rest of the family. As Ronnie sifts through the obstacles and suffering, the shipwreck of her marriage to Jeff, she sees all the signs were there, signs she hadn’t wanted to see. Caution: you may find yourself sifting through your own relationships. Jeff, sadly, shows us what can happen when mental instability and alcoholism are swept under the rug, even by loved ones who mean well. Don’t despair, at the end of the standoff, there is hope. Kathryn Craft has once again shown us (as she did in The Art of Falling) that she is masterful at enveloping us in the lives of characters who appear to have been abandoned by hope, then showing us that life can and will carry on.

5.0 out of 5 stars a beautiful gift. I can't wait to read more from ..., April 18, 2015
Each one of the stories in this collection draws you in and immerses you in a rich, alluring setting with characters who feel so real I often found myself wondering how my new friends were doing hours after finishing a story. Each one is told with Coelho-like simplicity, truth and wisdom, yet in the author's unique and powerful voice. A true gem, a must read, a beautiful gift. I can't wait to read more from Madhu.

5.0 out of 5 stars I absolutely recommend this for children and adults alike, July 16, 2014
This is such a touching story of finding the magic in every moment, especially when faced with adversity. It's about color, friendship, persevering and beauty that we sometimes fail to notice. The author was inspired to write it after suffering from major vision problems that left her color blind. I absolutely recommend this for children and adults alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read!, March 31, 2014
This review is from: The In-Between Hour (Paperback)
I highly recommend this lovely story of struggling hearts and minds. The author brings the characters to life beautifully, they became friends you can't help but cheer on. Family relations are handled gently and realistically. There is something for all of us to take home from this book. And, as an added bonus, Barbara depicts such an incredible sense of place now I want to live on Occoneechee Mountain.


Thirsty: A Novel
Thirsty: A Novel
by Kristin Bair O'Keeffe
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $22.95
45 used & new from $0.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical, September 29, 2011
This review is from: Thirsty: A Novel (Hardcover)
There is something truly magical about this tale that surely runs parallel to so many lives of immigrants to America, full of misery, disappointments, death and despair, and yet the hugely talented Kristen Bair O'Keefe makes it beautiful. The imagery she creates with the written word is as tangible as a work of art, and it is this beauty that stays close with you long after you turn the last page. A book you'll remember.
