As one reviewer states, “Just about as perfect as a book can be, this grabs you from the first word and holds onto your heart right to the last, fateful word.… Hattie is a masterful debut that expertly weaves together themes of love, loss, nature, destiny and the beauty of simple humanity.” US Review of Books/Eric Hoffer Award
The first words that Hattie shares are, "It's funny how the world can be as small as the flesh around you, or as large as the winds your voice travels upon." Then the novel begins, and it begins with the end of this woman's life. In a spare and powerful narrative this soulful novel takes us on an intimate journey through the meaning of Hattie’s life and life in general. It delves fearlessly into the complexity of our human relationships, our yearning for the divine, and the ways in which these paths cross throughout our lives. By sharing her stories, Hattie reconnects with parts of her lost life and loves and finds the courage to tell the truths of her life—in death she discovers her voice.
