It's been years since Skye Elliot has seen her biological father. He left when she was twelve, breaking her heart, and her life has not exactly been going uphill since. A drug user and alcoholic, Skye is given a choice after a car accident: jail or rehab. It takes eight months to get clean, but the day Skye is released, she has one plan: to be a good mother to her four-year-old daughter, Gracie. But first she has to find her. As she sets out on her unsettling, life-changing quest, she is joined by the last person in the world she ever expected to help her. 'If you haven't discovered Jo-Ann Mapson yet, you're in for the finest of treats - her books will move you from out-loud laughter to bittersweet tears.' - Jodi Picoult

About the Author:

Jo-Ann Mapson is the author of eleven previous novels, including the beloved Finding Casey, Solomon's Oak, Hank & Chloe, Blue Rodeo (CBS TV movie), and the Los Angeles Times bestsellers The Wilder Sisters and Bad Girl Creek. She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with her husband and their four dogs. www.joannmapson.com

Review:

“Jo-Ann Mapson specializes in life's lost-and-found, stories of broken hearts, broken people, broken families - but never without the hope of being made whole. Owen's Daughter may be her best work so far, for it's about a grown child who has gone wrong, and done wrong, very wrong, but who learns that in order to be forgiven, she has to forgive. Again, Jo-Ann Mapson proves that she is the heart of the West.” ―Jacquelyn Mitchard, bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean

“I love Jo-Ann Mapson's voice, She speaks with a plain beautiful truth and tells a story that breaks your heart with its simplicity of expression and complexity of feeling. Owen's Daughter may be her very best novel yet, a pleasure from first page to last.” ―Mark Childress, bestselling author of Georgia Bottoms and Crazy in Alabama

Owen's Daughter by Jo-Ann Mapson isn't a book; it's a destination, people with old friends and intriguing strangers. The story is so full of truth and life that you want to dig your feels in and refuse to leave.” ―Judith Ryan Hendricks, bestselling author of Bread Alone

“Reuniting cherished characters from Solomon's Oak (2010) and Finding Casey (2012), Mapson introduces yet another fetching cast of fragile yet resilient personalities who warmly work their ways into readers' hearts.” ―Booklist

“Moving . . . Mapson delves deeply into the messy, complex relationships between [characters], while rendering the New Mexico landscape so beautifully that it emerges as an additional member of the cast. She has a particularly strong feel for human-animal bonds, creating four-legged (and in one unfortunate case, three-legged) characters that are as distinctive as the human variety.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Mapson performs certain kinds of literary acrobatics with this stand-alone novel . . . The intersection of lives and families is revelatory and a catalyst for hope and healing. Longtime fans of Mapson will be delighted to see their favorite characters meet; readers of Jodi Picoult and Anita Shreve would be well rewarded. Mapson does an incredible job of bringing together beloved characters from past novels without leaving newcomers in the cold.” ―Library Journal

“The beauty of Owen's Daughter, the 12th and latest novel by Santa Fe's own Jo-Ann Mapson, is the realistic pathos of the human condition experienced by characters who could live right next door. If you're human, you can't help but relate to it. What could be more suspenseful than parent-child relationships, life-changing health conditions, fragile or broken love connections, and the steep climb out of the abyss of addiction? These travails, set against a Santa Fe backdrop so vivid that the city becomes a mood instead of a star on a map, besiege characters so rich and well developed that the reader can visualize each one.” ―The Santa Fe New Mexican

“Mapson has provided a series of glimpses of a quirky, damaged, always-interesting community in the old part of Santa Fe . . . [She] writes women lovingly and complexly.” ―San Francisco Book Review

“[Santa Fe] and the New Mexico landscape are as vividly written as the many characters. Artists are everywhere; the winds bring grit and the scent of piñon and sage. Mapson integrates the many cultures, galleries, and gourmet markets with a sense of history that runs like a current just below modern life . . . A story that will appeal to those interested in exploring the bonds of people to family, animals, and the land, as well as to those who enjoy a love story.” ―New Mexico Magazine
