Wrecked Upon This Shore deals with life's most significant tests: loving and dying, broken relationshios, the drive to heal and the impulse to be whole.

"...raw and strange and hilarious and affecting."

- Michael Crummey

"I fell in love with these characters: saintly and monstrous, wrecked but not lost --castaways all. Kate Story is one of those rare writers who can plumb the darkness and retrieve from the depths a jewel, a truth, luminous and redemptive. A magical and moving novel. Prepare to be transported."

- Jessica Grant, author of Come, Thou Tortoise

"Told with intelligence and tenderness, Wrecked Upon This Shore explors a son's compassion of r a dying mother who was far from perfect. It's less about what happened than about how to live with the aftermath. Kate Story brings a mature, passionate, compelling voice to the modern family dynamic. 

- Robin McGrath, author of award-winning novel The Winterhouse


" ...a great read, energetic, solidly emotionally and geographically based, and peopled by characters with heft, resonance, and volume."

- Joan Sullivan, The Evening Telegram
