Amanda Eyre Ward’s debut novel is an intimate portrait of three women whose lives collide during a brutal
Texas summer.
In Gatestown, Texas, twenty-nine-year-old Karen Lowens awaits her execution with a host of convicted serial
killers on death row. In Manhattan, Dr. Franny Wren, also twenty-nine, tends to a young cancer patient, and resists
the urge to run from her fiancé and her carefully crafted life. In Austin, Texas, brassy Celia Mills, a once-vibrant
librarian, mourns her murdered husband.
Over the course of the summer, fate pushes these eerily recognizable women together, culminating in a revelation
of the possibility of faith, the responsibility of friendship, and the value of life. Sleep Toward Heaven is a luminous
story of murder and desire, solitude and grace—a rare literary page-turner where redemption seems perpetually
within arm’s reach.
