Praise for The Paper Palace

Beguiling.--Vogue, The Best Books to Read This Summer

Nail-biting. --Town & Country

"This one's filled with secrets, love, lies and a summer beach house. What more could you ask?--"Parade, "Best Beach Reads"

"The gorgeous scenery of Back Woods (a stand-in for Wellfleet, Mass.) provides an atmospheric backdrop to Elle's ruminations and revelatory flashbacks."
--Los Angeles Times, "10 best books for your summer beach reading"

Ensconced in her family's rustic compound on Cape Cod for an annual summer trip, Elle Bishop is at a crossroads, forced to choose between the two great loves of her life. Should she run off with the longtime bestie she's secretly been in love with since they endured a ghastly childhood trauma together? Or stay with her cherished husband, a dashing Brit who's the father of her kids? --People

"Doubly blessed when it comes to descriptive powers, Heller is as good on nature as she is on interiors."--The New York Times

An assured debut. A sultry tale of Waspish New England that captures the spirit of Updike and Cheever.--The Times (London)

Tightly woven and immediate,
The Paper Palace takes us deep into a vivid summer landscape, a family, and a private, longstanding love story, and holds us there from start to finish. --Meg Wolitzer, New York Times bestselling author of The Interestings and The Female Persuasion

"The Paper Palace turned out to be the very page-turner I needed. If you want to learn something about love over a long time--how it can hurt, how it can soar-- read this book."--Mary Beth Keane, New York Times bestselling author of Ask Again, Yes

"Miranda Cowley Heller has written a magnificent page-turner, a love story that shimmers with desire, intelligence, and humor. Lush and gorgeously written, The Paper Palace is as intoxicating as a summer night by the sea. I didn't want it to end." --Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney, New York Times bestselling author of Good Company

It's been ages since I was so absorbed in a contemporary novel. I loved it. --Nick Hornby, New York Timesbestselling author ofJust Like You

"Set in the physical and psychic landscape of Cape Cod,
The Paper Palace is a fever dream of a novel, luminous with love and shot through with humor and heartbreak. It is a book that explores the indelibility of childhood, what it means to be shaped by place, and all that is unpredictable about the human heart. I couldn't put it down. --Adrienne Brodeur, author of Wild Game

A beautifully constructed, wonderfully intelligent and beguiling novel, rich with a multitude of pleasures. --William Boyd, author of Any Human Heart

It's glorious and gorgeous. I was absolutely immersed and gripped and I'm devastated to have finished it.
--Marian Keyes, author of Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married

In rich and sensuous prose, Cowley Heller, cracks open the human heart and exposes her character's choices: the paths not taken and the devastating consequences. I smelled the old cabins and the backwoods, felt the pond water lapping around my ankles, experienced the love and loss of family. A perceptive and powerful story which will stay with me for a long time. --Claire Fuller, author of Unsettled Ground

I can't think of a more brilliant debut than The Paper Palace. Enticing, assured and multi-layered, it introduces a major new voice in American fiction . . . A marvel.--Cressida Connolly, auhor of The Happiest Days

Absolutely phenomenal novel - dazzling writing and utterly addictive. Read it.--Rosamund Lupton, New York Times bestselling author of Sister

It felt as if I read The Paper Palace in one go. It was completely immersive, and shocking, and utterly alive. I loved it. --Nina Stibbe, author of Love, Nina

Beautifully written, richly compelling, The Paper Palace is as dark and uncompromising as it is tender and lyrical. Here is a love triangle that keeps you turning the pages, a vivid evocation of place, and an exploration of the one of the most unsettling of secrets. --Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Captivating debut... full of lush atmospheric details. This will keep the reader guessing all the way to the end."--Publishers Weekly

"The moody and atmospheric setting of the shadowy paths and ponds of the Back Woods is described in lush detail that makes a sharp contrast to the colder, sharper elements of Elle's story...From the first pages of her debut novel, Heller pulls no punches. Some of them just sneak up on you later on." --Kirkus

📖: Every summer Elle and her family stay at their cabin in the woods in Cape Cod. After developing a childhood friendship with a boy named Jonas, the strong feelings between the pair never develop romantically. Elle, now in her 50s, enters into a summer fling with her first love, jeopardising her family unit and making her question her marriage.

💭: Initially I thought this book would solely focus on Elle's inner turmoil, the choice between her devoted husband and the man she has loved since she was a child; which didn't appeal to me. The very short snappy sentences irritated me and the constant switching of timelines and numerous characters confused me a little and I found it hard to get into. That was until I got passed the first section and into the secrets of Elle's past. This book is not lighthearted as I first thought. The topics are disturbing, the characters are unlikeable and the ending unclear.
