"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

McCabe's clear story structure, told in two voices, never confuses the reader, who searches along with Maggie-Kate as mysteries are explored and revealed. Abandonment,depression, isolation, grief, chronic illness and unfulfilled longing, are issues interwoven expertly and realistically by McCabe into an unforgettably poignant story of self-discovery and acceptance. Maggie-Kate's struggle to reconcile what she was told as a child and reality speaks to the universal task of understanding our past as we create our future.
