The From-Aways

 a novel

Published by WILLIAM MORROW

Two young women trying to find their places in the world settle in a small coastal town in Maine and discover purpose, friendship and acceptance...as events begin to spin out of control, debut novelist Hauser creates a palpable bond linking characters, readers, a community and a relevant political issue. Hauser's style is expressive, clever and compelling, and she offers readers a thoughtful and engaging debut.   -  Kirkus Reviews

Hauser alternates first-person chapters between her two primary characters to build beautifully rounded characterizations of them and others and form a loving story centered on a place and its effect on its residents. This impressively crafted first novel is likely to leave readers wanting both a Maine lobster dinner and more from this author.  -  Booklist
