Description
This Number One Book Sense Pick and San Francisco Chronicle bestseller celebrates life's fundamental joys and trials through the characters of Rose and Ruby, sisters destined to live inseparably but blessed with distinct sensibilities that enrich and complicate their shared experiences—of growing up, of finding their way in the world, of saying goodbye. As Stacey D'Erasmo noted in her NYTBR review, the novel "is a ballad, a melancholy song of two very strange, enchanted girls who live out their peculiar, ordinary lives in a rural corner of Canada…. The Girls glides by like a watercolor dream, finding its poetry in dailiness and the universalities of human desire and connection."

"Reader, I loved it. From the first paragraph you know you've begun something very special."—Nancy Pearl

"The Girls is so deeply imagined, so vivid and fresh, by turns funny, by turns astonishing, by turns sad. What wonderful writing! What glorious characters! I found myself weeping when I'd finished not only because of the ending, and not only because the book was done, but because of the pure joy of the whole experience."—Jane Hamilton
