A lot has happened with THE DEVOTED while I’ve been away on a writing residency! Here’s a roundup of some of the most exciting new info and responses to the book:
Kirkus calls THE DEVOTED “A thoughtful exploration of faith, surrender, and ecstasy.”
Booklist gave THE DEVOTED a starred review! Here’s an excerpt:
Hurley’s debut is a breathtaking performance, portraying not just the ugly corners of an abusive relationship but also how faith can color the contours of our lives. With absolutely spot-on descriptions of Boston, this spellbinding story adds much-needed nuance to the discussion of faith and what we’re willing to forsake in the name of absolution.
Library Journal picked THE DEVOTED as one of its Summer/Fall Best Reads and wrote “All lovers of great fiction with complex characters as well as anyone fascinated by narratives about religious cults will want.”
