Praise for Ann Hood:
‘An engrossing storyteller … [This book] works its magic.’ Sue Monk Kidd, author of The Secret Life of Bees
‘What a gift for Ann Hood, who suffered a loss nearly identical to Mary Baxter's, to have made of her grief.’
‘Memorably stirring and authentic.’
Los Angeles Times Book Review
‘Ann Hood writes with the ease of a born storyteller.’
Ann Hood was born in Rhode Island. She graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in American Literature and worked as a flight attendant for TWA for 8 years. Whilst working as a flight attendant, Ann got a Master's degree from New York University, also in American Literature. She lived in NYC until 1993 when she re-met and married someone she knew in high school.
Ann then moved back to Rhode Island and had a son, Sam, who is now 14. Her daughter Grace died in 2002 when she was 5; as a result, she adopted a baby from China last year, Annabelle, who is now 3.
