Product description


"With lyrical prose and a narrative that kept me turning pages at a breakneck speed, Sleeping in Eden delivered everything I yearn for in a novel: evocative plot lines, well-drawn characters, and a heart-stopping conclusion." -- Tracey Garvis Graves, author of the bestselling novel On the Island "Nicole Baart's Sleeping in Eden is vivid storytelling with a temporal sweep. In Baart's cleverly woven mystery, the characters' intertwined fates prove that passions transcend time-and secrets will always be unearthed." -- Jenna Blum, New York Times and internationally bestselling author "Sleeping in Eden is a bittersweet and masterful story of love and longing and redemption. Nicole Baart has crafted an irresistible mystery, a page-turner of a novel with prose so rich, and characters so beautifully drawn, you'll be absorbed from the very first sentence. I'm telling everyone I know to put Sleeping in Eden on their to-be-read list-you will not be disappointed!" -- Roberta Gately, author of Lipstick in Afghanistan and The Bracelet "Emotionally gripping and perfectly paced, Sleeping in Eden's taut storyline and profound characterizations will keep you turning the page until the richly satisfying end." -- Amy Hatvany, author of Outside the Lines and Heart Like Mine "Sleeping in Eden is bittersweet and moving, and it will haunt you from page one. Nicole Baart writes with such passion and heart." -- Sarah Jio, New York Times bestselling author of Blackberry Winter and The Violets of March "Nicole Baart has written a novel that satisfies on every level. Sleeping in Eden is a compelling mystery, a tragic love story, a perceptive consideration of the callous whim of circumstance and, perhaps most important, a beautiful piece of prose. I guarantee this is a book that will haunt you long after you've turned the last page." -- William Kent Krueger, New York Times bestselling author "Baart's beautifully layered story of one man's journey to repair his wounded marriage, and the unsolved crime that may be the key to its healing, takes readers on a gripping ride. At turns chillingly suspenseful and achingly tender, Sleeping in Eden is exactly the sort of novel every reader hopes to find when they crack the spine of a new book. Baart's characters are richly drawn and utterly compelling; I was hooked from page one." -- Erika Marks, author of The Mermaid Collector and Little Gale Gumbo "Sleeping in Eden is intense and absorbing from the very first page. Written in lovely prose, two seemingly different storylines collide in a shocking conclusion." -- Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Weight of Silence and One Breath Away "Nicole Baart writes like a dream, and she gives us a story that is part murder mystery, part sensitive exploration of our human connections: the ties between parent and child, husband and wife; the tug of the past; and the blurry, often baffling border between friendship and love." -- Marisa de los Santos, author of Belong to Me and Love Walked In "Sleeping in Eden mesmerized me from the first heart-stopping page. Nicole Baart draws her characters beautifully while crafting a plot that kept me up all night. A highly emotional and gripping read." -- Anita Hughes, author of Monarch Beach "[Nicole Baart] weaves together a taut story of unspoken secrets and the raw, complex passions of innocence lost." * Midwest Connections Pick for May 2013 * "Baart's eloquent prose draws the reader into the tragic tale. At times a love story, other times a mystery, this is overall a very purposeful piece of fiction." * RT Book Reviews * "Baart expertly unravels the backstory of her intriguing characters, capturing the nuances of both life-tested relationships and the intense passion of first love. Ripe with complex emotion and vivid prose, this story sticks around long after the last page is turned." * Publisher's Weekly * --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
