Catherine Ryan Hyde is a wonderful novelist. She has published about 24 books so far, and though some of them are so-called Young Adult Fiction, that doesn’t define them. She has a spare, lyrical and very tender narrative voice and writes beautifully about somewhat battered and broken people. I love her people and her stories. You might know her for, Pay It Forward, which spawned a movement and a movie… my personal favourite, Funerals For Horses, is a book that took me somewhere and brought me back a little bit different.
