Editorial Reviews


Praise for The Dog Year

“The story of a woman who had everything, lost everything, and now wants to shoplift the rest.”—Jacquelyn Mitchard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean“Few authors are funnier or more sympathetic than Ann Garvin, and few heroines [are] more in need of comic relief and sympathy than Dr. Lucy Peterman. The Dog Year is a kind, gentle, honest look at a woman whose life has come apart and a survivor who puts it all back together.”—Wiley Cash, New York Times bestselling author of author of A Land More Kind than Home and This Dark Road to Mercy“Hilarious, insightful, and heartbreaking... A deeply intimate story of tragedy and recovery that readers and book clubs will treasure.”—Matt Bondurant, author of The Night Swimmer and The Wettest County in the World 

Praise for Ann Garvin and On Maggie’s Watch

“Compelling . . . A perfect fit for suburban reading groups.”—Booklist

On Maggie’s Watch shows how we thrive, how we go on, in a life that’s neither perfect nor fair. [Garvin] writes with humor and compassion so well; just when I’d feel about to cry the scene would twist and I’d laugh out loud. She has such a deep understanding for her flawed and trying-to-get better characters; she obviously loves them, and so do we.”—Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author of Little Night
