Editorial Reviews

Review

"How great would it be to inherit, unexpectedly, a wonderful large Victorian house when you turned twenty-one? Maggie-Kate is unsure if it's a blessing or a curse. Following Disasters is a novel that offers thrilling wisdom--about family, friendship, and romance. This is a true and important book, sometimes haunting, that is worth any reader's time."

- Sena Jeter Naslund, author of Abundance, a Novel of Marie-Antoinette and Ahab's Wife



“A masterfully told story of betrayal and dislocation vibrantly narrated through the voices of an odd-ball aunt and her eccentric niece, Following Disasters is at once a mystery, a love story, and a narrative of healing. Nancy McCabe’s most recent novel explores that deepest human yearning: our need to belong. I couldn’t put it down.”

― Elaine Neil Orr, author of A Different Sun: A Novel of Africa



“Following Disasters is really about fleeing the disasters of our past, and, finally, facing them. This beautiful novel shows how the ghosts of the past will quietly torment us until we confront them head on. You’ll be haunted by the brave, struggling Maggie long after you turn the final page―I certainly have been.”

― Katrina Kittle, author of Blessings of the Animals
