From the Publisher

Editorial Reviews


''Why do we think that women are more likely than men to write novels of such surpassing tenderness that they lift the heart and scald the heart at the same time? Luke Allnutt's debut novel We Own the Sky proves it's not always so. With literary chops and dramatic intensity, this heartbreaking story of a father's love that defies all reason takes off on the first page and never touches down.'' --Jacquelyn Mitchard, New York Times bestselling author The Deep End of the Ocean and Two if By Sea

''[T]ender and raw, spun in pragmatic prose as personal as a friend's heartfelt admissions, with turns as unexpected as life itself.'' --Publishers Weekly, starred review

''How do we go on when there seems to be nothing to go toward? How can forgiveness really feel like mercy to ourselves? Luke Allnutt's astounding debut is about memory, love, and how when we are broken, we still can become whole. Gut-wrenching, powerful, and yes, you want to buy copies for friends because this is the kind of book you'll have to share.'' --Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Is This Tomorrow, Pictures of You and Cruel Beautiful World

''[A] beautiful, hugely emotional story. And while you'll definitely need tissues, it's the feeling of hope that will stay with you long after you've finished reading.'' --The Sun (UK)

''We Own the Sky is heartbreak of a novel filled with love, sorrow, pain, and--ultimately --hope. The characters are drawn so tenderly, with such beautiful detail, that it's impossible not to feel the emotions that pulse through the pages. Powerful, touching, and poignant, this family's love story had me in tears.'' --Jill Santopolo, bestselling author of The Light We Lost

''A breathtaking read that describes perfectly the joy and pain that comes with loving fully and all the compassion and forgiveness it requires. Brimming with hope to the very end.'' --Steven Rowley, national bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus

''[An] emotional novel of love, loss, and hope.... Allnutt, who began this book after he was diagnosed with colon cancer, teaches us to cherish the simple things in life and that sometimes the only way to keep going is to share your story. Readers who enjoy highly emotional journeys will appreciate this vivid and heart-twisting debut.'' --Library Journal

''Beautifully rendered and profoundly moving, We Own the Sky illustrates the lengths we'll go to for those we love. Luke Allnutt is a major new talent in fiction and his debut is not to be missed.'' --Camille Pagán, bestselling author of Life and Other Near-Death Experiences

''Heartbreaking and devastating and complicated, We Own the Sky offers something remarkable: light in the darkest dark and redemption where there ought to be none.'' --Laurie Frankel, bestselling author of This Is How It Always Is

''We Own the Sky strikes every emotional chord. I was pulled in at the very first scene and held captive until the final page. A gorgeously written, heart-wrenching novel that beautifully illustrates the vulnerability of the human heart, and the depth one will go to save those they love. Allnutt is a masterful storyteller, deftly weaving past and present, desperation and hope, bitterness and redemption, resulting in a book so gripping, so painfully honest, I was certain it was based on a true story. Thought-provoking, original, and highly readable, We Own the Sky is a perfect book club selection.'' --Lori Nelson Spielman, internationally bestselling author of The Life List and Sweet Forgiveness

''A heartbreaking read about love and loss. Have your tissues handy.'' --Bella Magazine (UK)

''This book will break your heart, but repair it too. Luke Allnutt's writing is full of compassion. It made me hold my loved ones a little bit closer.'' --Katie May, The Whitstable High Tide Swimming Club

''Deeply affecting. A beautiful, remarkable book.'' --Lucy Diamond, author of The Secrets of Happiness

''Utterly beautiful, heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting.'' --Rachael Lucas, author of The State of Grace

''There is a raw authenticity to this stunning novel.'' --The People (UK)

''This book brims over with empathy. Rob and Anna's crippling grief is utterly heartbreaking to read. It's at times a difficult read, but I finished it with tears running down my face. This is a book that will get under your skin and stay in your mind for a long time. Beautiful and irresistible.'' --Clare Swatman, author of Before You Go

''Both movingly tender and unflinchingly honest, We Own the Sky is story that will stay with me.'' --Isabel Ashdown, author of Little Sister
