This is a gripping novel about two sisters who are left homeless by their mother’s death and the lengths the fierce older sister will go to protect her beloved young charge. The hardscrabble Chase women—Mary, Hannah, and their mother Diane—have been eking out a living running a tiny seaside motel that has been in the family for generations, inviting trouble into their lives for just as long. Eighteen-year-old Mary Chase is a force of nature: passionate, beautiful, and free-spirited. Her much younger sister, Hannah, whom Mary affectionately calls “Bunny,” is imaginative, her head full of the stories of princesses and adventures that Mary tells to give her a safe emotional place in the middle of their troubled world. But when Diane dies in a car accident, Mary discovers the motel is worth less than the back taxes they owe. With few options, Mary’s finely tuned instincts for survival kick in. As the sisters begin a cross-country journey in search of a better life, she will stop at nothing to protect Hannah. But Mary wants to protect herself, too, for the secrets she promised she would never tell—but now may be forced to reveal—hold the weight of unbearable loss. Vivid and suspenseful, The Sisters Chase is a whirlwind page-turner about the extreme lengths one family will go to find—and hold onto—love.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Exquisitely written and full of surprises, love, and loss…Clearly the work of a writer at the top of her game.” Jennifer McMahon, New York Times bestselling author
“Part mystery, part road novel, part family saga…had me riveted from the first secret to the last revelation.” Lisa Lutz, New York Times bestselling author
The Sisters Chase hits all the right marks. Wonderful characters, so believable that it still surprises me they aren’t real people, a heart-wrenching story about love, loyalty, and bonds that can’t be broken, and the true nature of survival. This is the kind of book that you read late into the night, eyes heavy, and wake up thinking about until you’ve finally finished the last page.” Chevy Stevens, New York Times bestselling author
“Sarah Healy has created, in Mare and Bunny, characters so real and flawed, my heart ached for them, and I so, so wanted them to find that safe place called home. The Sisters Chase is exquisitely written and full of surprises, love and loss; it is clearly the work of a writer at the top of her game.” Jennifer McMahon, New York Times bestselling author
“A beautifully written family drama with a mystery at its core, The Sisters Chase is a layered and lovely book about the bonds of love crashing up against the rocky shore of the world. Mary Chase is thorny and fractured and fascinating, and I will not forget her or her struggle to bring her sister to a place of peace and safety that she only half believes in. Sarah Healy’s novel, wise and fierce and bittersweet, broke my heart in all the best ways. This is one you’ll want to pass along.” Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author
The Sisters Chase is that rare thing, a slow burner that conceals its cunning and sneaks up on you unawares…The novel’s best creation is Mary…as complex, interesting, and flawed a heroine as you could hope for, equal parts Becky Sharp, Scarlett O’Hara, and some ineffable and winning quality peculiar only to herself.” New York Times
“A roller-coaster ride of a book…with an ultimate revelation of the hidden truth that first set the wheels of the fast-moving story in motion.” Vermont Magazine
“The bond between sisters is tested in Healy’s gripping and beautifully written new novel…A truly entrancing and relentless tale of love, betrayal, and sisterhood.” Booklist (starred review)
“Captivating…Mary is an unforgettable protagonist—a fierce and unstoppable force of nature caught in a storm of her own making. Healy delivers a heartbreaking story of love, loyalty, and secrets that can never truly be outrun.” Publishers Weekly
“The sisters’ relationship—and their resilience—makes this novel powerful.” Kirkus Reviews
“A striking, heartbreaking story about love, motherhood, and family, with a powerful and elusive protagonist at its heart.” Library Journal
“A heartrending tale of survival filled with deftly revealed surprises and twists…An exciting read!” Diane Chamberlain, author of Pretending to Dance
“A deliciously compulsive read, a miniature mystery of love, survival, and sisterhood written on the scale of the human heart. Deceptively simple, gracefully realized, and occasionally wicked, it lingers like a summer dream after the last page is turned.” Amy Gentry, author of Good as Gone
“Deeply moving and thrilling…This is a story that stayed with me long after I turned the last page.” Carla Buckley, author of The Things That Keep Us Here
