According to best-selling author Augusten Burroughs, the pages of Sarah Healy’s House of Wonder are filled “with keen insight and rare emotional truth.” The Vermont writer’s newly released novel revisits complex family dynamics and the idea of returning home that propelled her celebrated debut Can I Get an Amen? In her sophomore effort, Healy follows Jenna Parsons, whose unyielding devotion to her career and young daughter functions as an escape from her increasingly dysfunctional mother and twin brother. Finding herself back at her childhood home in their company evokes truth, trauma and, ultimately, healing in the most unexpected places.
