About the book

Synopsis

Born and raised on a thoroughbred horse farm in the green hills of Kentucky, Knox Bolling has grown up steeped in the comforting rhythms of family life. Deep ties bind her to this safe, predictable existence, 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 . . .

What the critics say

A moving debut from a writer of powerful descriptive range.

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

Clay expertly describes a world where the natural rhythm of nature is the basis of life - something that is important to the central character until her life is turned upside down when she loses her beloved sister, Charlotte
- No. 1!

Bold and confident
- International Herald Tribune
