—Jennifer McMahon, author of The Night Sister

“THE SISTERS CHASE hits all the right marks. Wonderful characters, so believable that it still surprises me they aren’t real people, a heart-wrenching story about love, loyalty, and bonds that can’t be broken, and the true nature of survival. This is the kind of book that you read late into the night, eyes heavy, and wake up thinking about until you’ve finally finished the last page.”
—Chevy Stevens, author of Those Girls and Still Missing

— Amy Gentry, Author of Good As Gone

“A beautifully written family drama with a mystery at its core, THE SISTERS CHASE is a layered and lovely book about the bonds of love crashing up against the rocky shore of the world. Mary Chase is thorny and fractured and fascinating, and I will not forget her or her struggle to bring her sister to a place of peace and safety that she only half believes in.  Sarah Healy’s novel, wise and fierce and bittersweet, broke my heart in all the best ways.  This is one you’ll want to pass along.”
—Joshilyn Jackson, author of The Opposite of Everyone and gods in Alabama

"The Sisters Chase is a rollercoaster ride of a book, a journey through time with ups and downs in rapid succession: tragedy and triumph, hope and hope lost, trust and deceit, and escape...with an ultimate revelation of the hidden truth that first set the wheels of the fast-moving story in motion."
—Philip R. Jordan, Vermont Magazine

“Sarah Healy’s The Sisters Chase will stay with me for a long time. It’s a heart-rending tale of survival filled with deftly revealed surprises and twists. In less skillful hands, Healy’s deeply flawed young protagonist, Mary, might have been unlikeable, but here she’s redeemed by her love and compassion for her younger sister Hannah. In fact, I ached for Mary as her plans to save herself and Hannah fall apart and tension builds. Each chapter ends on a note of suspense and surprise that demands you turn the page. An exciting read!”
—Diane Chamberlain, USA Today best-selling author of Pretending to Dance and The Silent Sister
