“There are no storybook perfect endings here, but this compelling novel raises the possibility of a hopeful way forward.” —The Seattle Times
“Will delight readers…vivid and written with a depth of feeling.” —Library Journal
"Like a gorgeous dark jewel, Hatvany’s exquisitely rendered novel explores the tragedy of a mind gone awry, a tangled bond of father and daughter, and the way hope and love sustain us. This novel does what the best fiction does: it makes us see and experience the world differently." —Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You
When you read the title of the book, Outside the Lines, there is no indication of what the storyline is. What the story does is chronicle the love and the lives of a father and daughter, drawn into the world of mental illness. Outside the Lines banters back and forth between two points of view; the daughter and her mentally ill father. The author does an outstanding job of transversing from the daughter to the father, and switching quiet smoothly between the past and present.
Outside the Lines can be purchased on Amazon
