"The Summer We Lost Her is a compelling and complex portrait
of a marriage and regret. Cohen spins a moving story with a
high-stakes plot that won't let you go until you know the family's
fate."--Heidi W. Durrow, New York Times bestselling author of The
Girl Who Fell From the Sky
"Cohen writes with command of a strained marriage facing unfathomable challenge, knowing precisely when to reveal and when to withhold. Deftly plotted and tensely paced, The Summer We Lost Her is impossible to put down."--Cathy Marie Buchanan, New York Times bestselling author of The Painted Girls
"At first glance Tish Cohen's astonishingly profound novel is an exquisitely written drama about a missing disabled little girl, but brace yourself, because that's just the top layer. Set against the background of competitive equestrian riding, The Summer We Lost Her dazzlingly unfolds the complexities of a fracturing marriage, the secrets we build our dreams on, and the fierce yearning to be someone other than who we really are. Compassionate, startling, and so full of life, the pages breathe."--Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You, Is This Tomorrow, and Cruel Beautiful World
"A complex and beautifully told story of a marriage in crisis, and the myriad ways our personal histories and our regrets come back to haunt us. Tish Cohen's characters are complicated and flawed and wonderfully precise, and somehow, by the time you turn the final pages of The Summer We Lost Her, they come to feel like family."--Julie Buxbaum, New York Times bestselling author of What To Say Next
"How much stress can a marriage take? Tish Cohen answers this question with skill and artistry, capturing subtle shifts in mood and feeling as she escalates the pressure on her characters. They're forced to face their own foibles and weaknesses as well as each other's as they confront the mystery at the heart of this story. Atmospheric and compulsively readable."
--Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author
