"Kleine’s crisp sentences paint Hope as a protagonist with watchful eyes in a world that confuses her. The mystery of Eden unfolds across America with humor and some clever detective work, combining a page-turner with a moving meditation on the limitations of family amidst trauma."Vanity Fair, "Summer's Smartest and Most Innovative Thrillers"

"A devastating, revelatory examination of trauma, memory, creation, and the ways in which we define ourselves according to our experiences."NYLON, "Great Books to Read this Summer"

"Kleine renders the people Hope loves and the trauma that holds her back with subtlety and compassion."—BBC.com, "10 Books to Read in July"

“I read this novel in one sitting because I simply couldn’t stop reading…when I closed the book, I couldn’t stop thinking about Hope and Eden, and what would happen next.”—Book Riot, "The Best Books We Read in June 2018"

"Eden is that rare bird of a book that manages to be both a page-turner and a moving and stark meditation—on sisterhood, violence, trauma, memory, and how a single event can shape a life."—Chronogram, "6 Books to Read this Summer"

"Don’t miss this haunting novel with heartbreaking themes of attachment and trauma."—Hello Giggles

"Hope has lost everything: She’s been dumped by her long-term girlfriend, kicked out of her apartment, and orphaned after her mother dies from cancer. But Larry, a man who, years before, abducted Hope and her half-sister, Eden, from a bus station is eligible for parole. Hope believes Larry should stay in prison, but the district attorney thinks she and Eden will have to share more information about the kidnapping with the parole board to guarantee that. That’s how Hope embarks on a cross-country journey to find her estranged sister and confront the trauma that’s she been avoiding for far too long."Bitch Media, "11 Books Feminists Should Read in July"

"Kleine is no stranger to violence, and Eden is a hard, sometimes frightening look at the way trauma follows us."The Millions, "Most Anticipated"

"It would be easy to read Eden as a literary mystery exploring trauma and its after-effects, yet Kleine is up to something more diffuse and sprawling. I was as drawn in to the details of the semi-struggling artist’s life, which recalled Lynne Tillman’s brainy downtown deadpan, as I was to Hope’s increasingly dispirited search for Eden in an old VW camper van."—Lambda Literary Review

"Dark, eloquent, and bold, Kleine’s latest is a fierce tale of survival and sisterhood." — Booklist

"Fascinating...a gripping portrait of the lingering effects of trauma."—Publishers Weekly

“A compelling tale…striking.”—Kirkus Reviews

"a vivid reading experience. Andrea Kleine has written a memorable and moving book!" —Powells' Staff Pick
