Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Gus Silva is just nine years old when his mother is killed by Gus’ abusive father, marking the boy forever and leaving him desolate with grief and inexpressible guilt. Only the assistance of classmate Hallie Costa, daughter of widower Dr. Nick, pulls Gus from depression. Years later, after star football player Gus has become known as “Voodoo” for his winning charm, he and Hallie finally yield to what seems a lifelong love, until an incident at a beach party after the senior prom leaves Hallie seriously injured and causes Gus to join the priesthood. But even Father Gus can’t shake a reputation for violence, leading to his wrongful conviction for murdering Ava Cilento, an abused woman who sought Gus’ counsel to protect her young daughter, then accused him of assault when she ended their alleged affair. As this epic spans decades, the third-person narration yields to the first-person account of teenager Mila Cilento, Ava’s daughter, who uncovers the truth of what happened years earlier. By the author of The Liar’s Diary (2007), this beautifully wrought novel is a sometimes wrenching but ultimately uplifting story of murder and betrayal in the face of faith, family in its truest sense, and—most of all—love. --Michele Leber

Review

“Stretching over more than three decades, it’s a gripping tale of stubborn love, the legacy of domestic violence, and the family secrets children keep. A noir element crops up, too.” (Boston Globe)

“Set against the coast of Provincetown, Patry Francis’s fierce, ravishing epic cuts deep to the bone about how love binds us together and breaks us apart, and how the past’s thumbprint rests on the present. Tender, violent, and alive, it’s also unforgettable.” (Caroline Leavitt, New York Times-bestselling author of Pictures of You)

“Patry Francis has written the sort of sprawling, Dickensian novel that readers long for in this post-modern age….The Orphans of Race Point has a breakneck pace, engaging characters, and a vividly rendered setting.” (Providence Journal)

“A Dickensian story….Its themes of passionate treachery and abiding love play out in sometimes heartbreaking ways. Recommend to readers wondering what to read after The Goldfinch.” (Library Journal (starred review))

"This beautifully wrought novel is a sometimes wrenching but ultimately uplifting story of murder and betrayal in the face of faith, family in its truest sense, and—most of all—love.” (Booklist (starred review))

“This talented author engages our emotions and her descriptions are impeccable, and moving…it’s a joy to read a novel that’s expertly crafted right to the very end (Barnstable Patriot)

“A sweeping family drama with its inherent mysteries and secrets…readers will be absorbed by the tragedies that push the story along, and the often engaging voice.” (Romantic Times)

“In The Orphans of Race Point, Patry Francis has poured a lifetime of wisdom into a thrilling, twisting plot, which holds up the human heart as a prism, turning it to show its many facets, its shadows and light.” (Susan Henderson, author of Up from the Blue)

“Stunning psychological suspense which poses the eternal question: how well can you know the people you love? This is riveting, bite-your-nails reading and the arrival of a great new talent.” (Lee Child on The Liar's Diary)

“A twisting ride full of dangerous curves and jaw-dropping surprises. This is one of my favorite reads of the year!” (Tess Gerritsen on The Liar's Diary)
