Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A powerful domestic novel. Kirkus
The Lost Daughter delivers the goods: flawed but sympathetic characters and a plot that will keep readers turning the pages voraciously.” Wally Lamb, New York Times bestselling author
“Ferriss’ latest is a deeply emotional book with lyrical writing…a modern story with deep underlayers. The characters, deeply flawed but very human, draw you in. They’re making choices blindly, since they never can see the future clearly, and then they must live with the results as they come.” RT Book Reviews (Top Pick)
“An emotionally riveting story of reliving mistakes, seeking redemption, and finally facing the consequences of a difficult decision…Lost Daughter manages to be a romantic family novel with a palpable atmosphere of impending calamity.” Booklist
“An unflinching study of parenthood…convincing, Franzen-style realism…a powerful domestic novel.” Kirkus Reviews
