Indies Introduce


  • The Comet Seekers, Helen Sedgwick
    Harper/HarperCollins, 9780062448767, October 11, 2016 (Fiction)

    “This moving novel establishes its unique tone and lyrical beauty from the opening sentence and sustains that level through a multi-generational story of the tension of loyalty to family and home against the lure and opportunities of the outside world."

    -Joe Strebel, Anderson’s Bookshop (Naperville, IL)

    The Comet Seekers is a novel organized by comets and populated by ghosts, both seen and unseen. It reminded me of All the Light We Cannot See in the kind way it treats its characters. I gave it to my mom and she loved it. Give it to your mom, too! This book is going to be big in 2016.” 

    -Ingrid Goatson, Boulder Book Store (Boulder, CO)
