The Sisters Chase
by Sarah Healy




Overview -

From the author of House of Wonder, two sisters embark on a surprising journey after the death of their mother.

The hardscrabble Chase women—Mary, Hannah, and their mother, Diane—have been eking out a living running a tiny seaside motel that has been in the family for generations. Eighteen-year-old Mary Chase is a force of nature: passionate, beautiful, and free-spirited. Her much younger sister, Hannah, whom Mary affectionately calls Bunny, is imaginative, her head full of the stories Mary tells to give her a safe emotional place in the middle of their troubled world.

When Diane dies in a car accident, Mary discovers that the motel is worth less than the back taxes they owe, and her finely tuned instincts for survival kick in. As the sisters begin a cross-country journey in search of a better life, she will stop at nothing to protect Hannah. But Mary wants to protect herself, too, for the secrets she promised she would never tell—but now may be forced to reveal—hold the weight of unbearable loss.

"Captivating" (Publishers Weekly) and suspenseful, The Sisters Chase is a "striking, heartbreaking story about love, motherhood, and family, with a powerful and elusive protagonist at its heart" (Library Journal).

"Thoroughly surprising...The Sisters Chase is that rare thing, a slow burner that conceals its cunning and sneaks up on you unawares."—New York Times

"Mary is a wonderful creation...A modern picaresque novel that surprises and delights."—Toronto Star

"Part mystery, part road novel, part family saga...had me riveted from the first secret to the last revelation."—Lisa Lutz, New York Times–bestselling author
