“I absolutely loved this beautiful, haunting story of a woman who learns to come to terms with a dark, deep family secret. This is the kind of book that   hooks you right in, brings tears to your eyes, and ends on a note of shining hope.  Lauren Mahdian will feel like your sister, your best friend.”—Tatiana de Rosnay, author of Sarah’s Key and A Secret Kept

“Amanda Ward’s CLOSE YOUR EYES is electrifying, a literary whodunit of the first order–breathless and disturbing and hopeful and true.  You won’t be able to look away.  People will be talking about this book.”—Justin Cronin, author of The Passage

“CLOSE YOUR EYES is a wonder. Amanda Eyre Ward has given us finely spun mystery with complex, absorbing characters and lovely prose. A true literary page-turner in the best sense of the word.”—Katie Crouch, author of Men in Trucks

“CLOSE YOUR EYES doesn’t hook you as much as it spins a delicate but powerful web around you. Amanda Eyre Ward goes straight to the heart of her complex, nuanced characters, and with empathy and insight she lays them bare. As a reader, you’re powerless against the elegance of her prose and the emotional honesty of her story. You’ll close the cover on this book, but you won’t forget it.”—Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of Fragile

“Amanda Eyre Ward has given us a book that is both beautifully wrought and intensely gripping. I was transfixed by this story of a woman haunted by loss but making her brave, difficult way toward truth.”–Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of Belong to Me and Love Walked In
