Editorial Reviews

Review

"This title is based on the author's experience with a standoff involving her husband, which adds real, raw, emotion to the plot. Framing the novel within a 12-hour period keeps the pages turning" - Library Journal

"A compelling read, an unflinching exploration of one of life's most inexplicable horrors...Craft is a talented storyteller, and the most important decision she has made with this novel is to provide an attitude of compassion for every character. Her narrative carries us through to the end of this very horrible day as it simultaneously pulls us into the minds and hearts of the characters. We experience the terror, regret, anger, and sorrow of each family member. It is the strength of each of the women characters that knits the story together, as it must have been that same strength that pulled the family through such a terrible time." - New York Journal of Books

"This novel is the very definition of a page-turner as it follows a twelve hour stand-off between a man threatening suicide and the police. Told from the alternating perspectives of his wife, his mother and his mother-in-law, the past is woven in with the present until the shattering conclusion." - Huffington Post

"Despite the known outcome, Kathryn Craft keeps the tension edge-of-your-seat suspenseful in The Far End of Happy, with deftly woven backstory and alternating present-day hourly narrative. She creates a story that is unflinchingly honest and hard-hitting. A superb insider's look at the ripple effect of clinical depression and suicide." - Kate Moretti, author of the New York Times bestselling Thought I Knew You, and Binds That Tie

"In The Far End of Happy, Kathryn Craft does not flinch from exploring the deep-rooted reasons for her characters' actions. Compellingly written, the tension builds throughout the book and the reader comes out the other side with more insight, and more compassion, for those who may find themselves on the far end of happy." - Catherine McKenzie, bestselling author of Hidden

"A complex and gripping story of broken hearts, lives, and marriages that will tear you apart from beginning to end." - Steena Holmes, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Memory Child and Finding Emma

"An incredibly honest and courageous exploration of a marriage torn apart by neglect and threats of suicide. Craft's ability to tell a tale as beautiful as it is haunting left me in awe. Not one to miss!" - Mary Kubica, author of The Good Girl

"Kathryn Craft's The Far End of Happy had me captivated from page one. A poignant glimpse into the undoing of a marriage. Craft expertly weaves a gripping tale that hits the reader hard and keeps moving briskly to its heartbreaking but hopeful conclusion." - Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Weight of Silence and These Things Hidden

"Kathryn Craft is a masterful storyteller who weaves a heartbreaking story packed with tension and brimming with humanity." - Lori Nelson Spielman, #1 international bestselling author of The Life List

"The Far End of Happy gives us a newsworthy tragedy from the inside out. In sharply intimate language, Kathryn Craft deftly weaves her story out of many stories, some buried in the past, some fresh as a new wound, stories of true love, of families carefully built and then painfully unraveled, of a good man's life ravaged by alcoholism, and of the guilt, anger, hope, and tremendous strength of the women and children who love him." - Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of Love Walked In, Belong To Me, and Falling Together
