Conrey’s NOWHERE NEAR GOODBYE is a deeply moving novel about family, how the past shapes us, and, ultimately forgiveness. Told with powerful prose, the author brings us into the lives of the richly developed characters with tenderness while bringing us on a heart-filled journey of love, loss, and the choices we make. Fierce and poignant, readers who love women’s fiction and true-to-life stories should not miss this stunning debut.

In her debut novel, Nowhere Near Goodbye, Conrey quickly and effectively draws readers into a world that many parents can relate to: career versus family, and how to balance the two.

And, in Emma Blake, Conrey delivers a main character readers can root for and commiserate with as we follow Emma through a heart-wrenching journey full of sacrifices and choices no parent would want to make.

With prose that is heartfelt and concise, and scenarios that are both tragic and hopeful, Nowhere Near Goodbye grabs readers from the beginning and never lets go.
