About the book


Born and raised at Four Corners, a thoroughbred horse farm in the green hills of Kentucky, Knox Bolling has grown up steeped in the comforting rhythms of family life and in the annual cycle of growth that transforms the foals into yearlings. Deep ties bind her to the rolling pastures and her safe if predictable life, but Knox knows the world has more to offer - excitements that her tempestuous and beautiful older sister, Charlotte, seems to have within her grasp, when she marries and moves away to Manhattan's West Village.

Then disaster strikes. Nothing could have prepared Knox for the loss of her sister. But the powerful bond remains, and she finds her loyalty to Charlotte tested more profoundly and fatefully than she could have imagined. As she starts to come to terms with her elusive sister's life, Knox learns deeply moving lessons for her own ...

Heather Clay brings together themes of love, loss and the tangled threads of family relationships in this stylish and compelling debut.

What the critics say

Heather Clay is a graceful and assured new writer with a great gift for character: the people in her fiction are as complex, beautiful and real as they are in life. Losing Charlotte is a spellbinding first novel.
- Lauren Groff, author of THE MONSTERS OF TEMPLETON

The family in this novel is so vividly imagined that I am still thinking of them: not as characters but as real people, recent companions of mine who have been through a lot, and for whom I wish serenity and in time joy. Losing Charlotte marks the debut of a very gifted young writer.
- Ann Packer, author of SONGS WITHOUT WORDS

A moving debut from a writer of powerful descriptive range
- Daily Mail
