About this title

Synopsis:

Sleep Toward Heaven is a luminous story of murder and desire, solitude and grace, set in Manhattan and small-town Texas.

In Gatestown, twenty-nine-year old Karen awaits her execution on Death Row. In New York, Franny, a doctor the same age, plans her wedding and tries to resist her urge to run. In Austin, Celia, a brassy young librarian, mourns her lost husband.

Over the course of one summer, the three women’s disparate lives intertwine. Karen, Franny, and Celia all struggle to find their place in a world where nothing is sure, as they move toward one night that will change them all forever.

With razor-sharp prose and humor that ignites the page, Amanda Eyre Ward’s debut novel will keep you reading all night and give you something to talk about in the morning. Sleep Toward Heaven is a novel to celebrate and to savor.

From the Inside Flap:

"It's funny and sad and redemptive. Read it now. Thank me later."—Jennifer Weiner, New York Times-bestselling author of Good in Bed and In her Shoes

"Faith, forgiveness and redemption comprise tried and true terrain in fiction. Ward delivers all three without manipulation or melodrama. She has woven a wonderful fictional tapestry with meaning embedded in the threads."—Pat MacEnulty, Sun-Sentinel

"Women's Death Row as you have never seen it; hauntingly rich, wise and sharply etched. In prison parlance: a bonaroo first novel!"—James Ellroy, author of The Cold Six Thousand and L.A. Confidential

"Sleep Toward Heaven is a merciful gaze on the lives of three women inextricably linked by murder and ultimate grace. Brutal, beautiful, wise – Amanda Eyre Ward has written a storm of a novel. It will rattle the cage of your heart."—Debra Magpie Earling, author of Perma Red

"Sleep Toward Heaven is a riveting read, a page-turner from the get-go. In this ambitious debut novel, with cinematic scope and a probing eye, Amanda Eyre Ward takes her readers inside the criminal justice system and into the hearts and minds of three women – a death row inmate dying of AIDS, the young widow of her last victim, and the kind, troubled prison doctor – whose lives literally hang in each other's hands during a few desperately hot months of Texas summer." —Thisbe Nissen, author of Out of the Girls' Room and Into the Night and The Good People of New York

"This is a terrific read, involving and surprising. Ward gives us a textured, vivid portrait of women on death row. Her writing is unflinching, sometimes hauntingly funny, always compelling."—Karen Stolz, author of Fanny and Sue and World of Pies
