From the Back Cover: BACK PANEL/COVER

A New York Times Notable Book

Beautifully written . . . Ann Patchett has produced a first novel that second- and third-time novelists would envy for its grace, insight, and compassion. Boston Herald

[A] wonderful first novel. A- Entertainment Weekly

St. Elizabeth s, a home for unwed mothers in Habit, Kentucky, usually harbors its residents for only a little while. Not so Rose Clinton, a beautiful, mysterious woman who comes to the home pregnant but not unwed, and stays. She plans to give up her child, thinking she cannot be the mother it needs. But when Cecilia is born, Rose makes a place for herself and her daughter amid St. Elizabeth s extended family of nuns and an ever-changing collection of pregnant teenage girls. Rose s past won t be kept away, though, even by St. Elizabeth s; she cannot remain untouched by what she has left behind, even as she cannot change who she has become in the leaving.

The Patron Saint of Liars is a remarkable novel . . . Ann Patchett is unique: a generous, fearless, and startlingly wise young writer. New York Times Book Review

ANN PATCHETT is the author of six novels, including Bel Canto, winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award and the Orange Prize. She has written for the Atlantic, Gourmet, the New York Times Magazine, Vogue, the Washington Post, and others. The Patron Saint of Liars was her best-selling debut novel.
