Praise For The Visibles…
"Tightly constructed and captivating....The Visibles is complicated, rewarding and full of heart. Shepard creates a rich reading experience in shying from simple answers and happy endings." -- Publishers Weekly
"The Visibles is that rarest of accomplishments -- a novel that pulls you into its world, then just...keeps...getting...better. Sara Shepard writes with a grace and ease, but don't be deceived -- the big stuff is in here: coming of age; New York in the nineties; the complications of family and friendship; illness and ambition; hope and disappointment and redemption. On every page you'll find an architect's control, a painter's eye, a dancer's elegance, and, best of all, an unending well of generosity. The Visibles is what you want from fiction. Enjoy." -- Charles Bock, author of Beautiful Children
"Summer Davis's childhood and its mysteries will entrance you. Within moments of beginning to read her story, she will become your closest friend and most trusted confidante. You will want to immerse yourself in her story and grow up with her and discover life with her over and over again." -- Ben Schrank, author of Miracle Man and Consent
"Sara Shepard delivers a tight mystery disguised as an arresting coming of age story. Her narrator is sharp, edgy, and sad -- just like all the best ones are. Summer Davis sneaks up on you, gets into your head, and stays there." -- Amy Bryant, author of Polly
