Pull quote: “In a dialogue that captures both the spirit of Southern heritage and the complexities of modern life, Henry’s richly told stories lead her readers along a wide range of emotion, often from heartache and guilt to family strife and ultimately, to resolution or acceptance. There is a stream of unflinching spirituality throughout her work that in a subtle way, gives not only credibility to the stories but strength to her central characters. Like all successful writers, her characters are rich in detail, allowing the reader an easy entry into their lives.”

Pull quote: "Once again, the low country of the south provides the backdrop for this emotional story of hard choices, bitter regret and hopeful redemption. Henry’s warm, inviting writing appeals to readers of Dorothea Benton Frank, Joshilyn Jackson and Mary Alice Monroe, and, like her earlier novels, will be a great source of intriguing discussion for any book club."

From intro to interview: “Patti has a special relationship with all her readers so I must tell you my personal tale; when she was celebrating the release of Coming Up For Air and her special itunes app she called on bloggers to get the word out, I of course was game (I hope we helped make it a huge success for you).

“riveting ... emotionally captivating”
“Henry’s wonderful ability to make readers become incredibly invested in the characters' lives moved me to tears. On the elliptical. In public. The book is so emotionally captivating that brilliant storytelling of Kate’s woes and joys left me powerless to behave like a regular human being in public. So here’s your warning: if you are at all self-conscious, avoid reading this book on planes, in the gym, or anywhere else where you will be unable to keep your emotions to yourself as you wallow alongside, shake your head at, and ultimately cheer for Henry’s lovable protagonist.”

Huffington Post RAN review Click here to read the article.
Pull quote: “Patti Callahan Henry has written many successful and enjoyable novels in the past but never has she written one as personal as her latest, And Then I Found You ... Henry writes this story with eloquence and beauty. This is her most personal and her most powerful story to date. It is also the one in which she seems most secure with her characters ... Readers will find themselves emotionally involved with Kate and her story from the moment she is met as a thirteen year old child. For the next twenty-two years of her life she is a fascinating but flawed human being, but then we all have flaws of one kind or another. These flaws make her more identifiable to those who read her story ... Fans of Patti Callahan Henry haven long been waiting for a story this touching and gripping. With And Then I Found You that wait is over.”
