PRAISE FOR A WATERSHED YEAR
A Watershed Year traces with subtle humor and grace the months after the death of Lucy’s beloved friend Harlan. Schoenberger’s spot-on storytelling adeptly draws out the ways in which our closest relationships can be imperfect and yet continue to transform us. The story often tugged me to tears-as much for the truths it reveals about human interconnectedness as for the pain of Lucy’s grief.
However, I never felt manipulated or yanked unwillingly to boo-hoo over standard sorrows. Her characters are lovably
quirky yet complex enough to be believable. You’ve never met them before, and yet you know they exist!
— Juliette Fay, best-selling author of Shelter Me and Deep Down True
“Susan Schoenberger takes us to the softer places of the heart in her debut novel, A WATERSHED YEAR, where love — in all its forms and glory — transforms grief into grace.”
— Patti Callahan Henry, NYT bestselling author. Coming Up for Air is her latest.
Thoughtful and uplifting reading of the power of a mother and family, A Watershed Year is an excellent pick.
