"The thoughtful prose and highly quotable phrases in

this novel are not few and far between. This is a book

that will make you wonder how lucky you are to be you

in this moment, make you think about the people you

that your problems may be small in comparison."

"THE FAR END OF HAPPY, written by Kathryn Craft, is one of the great reads that grabs you and refuses to let you go until the conclusion of the book. Craft's ability to pull you into the story and make you feel a part of the action is amazing."
May 4  Book Reviews & More by Kathy review

"Powerful. Intense. Emotional. Gut wrenching. While all of these adjectives fit THE FAR END OF HAPPY I believe that “heartbreaking” is probably the one that comes closest to describing this riveting novel."

May 9  Mallory Heart Reviews spotlight, review

"If the reader doesn't come away from this novel soul-wrenched, tear ducts dried out from crying, mind full of the characters—well, that reader must have read with eyes, ears, and heart closed. THE FAR END OF HAPPY is an extraordinarily compelling book, founded in an extraordinary comprehension of human nature, addiction, denial---and love, familial bonds, and character strength and integrity. It will be without a doubt a BEST of 2015. I can't praise it highly enough!"

May 9  Tigerlily Books review

"Ronnie is an engaging character and I was able to feel her pain as she struggled with the impact her decisions are likely to make. This story is an important one and Kathryn Craft tells it well drawing from her own personal experience of suicide. THE FAR END OF HAPPY is based on true events from the author's past and Craft blends her own story effortlessly with fiction. She tackles the subject sensitively and gives deep insight into the minds of the loved ones touched by suicide. It's a novel packed with emotion and the 12 hour time-scale really ramps up the tension."

"I completely adored the book - thought about it when I wasn't reading it which is an extraordinary compliment. It was stunning in so many ways."

May 11 Vox Libris spotlight, review, and giveaway

"This is not an easy book to read because its subject matter is sensitive and brutal. But it is a very real story, one inspired by events Craft suffered in her life. It feels personal and intimate, almost uncomfortably so. Yet its message is powerful: suicide (even attempted) claims a wide swath of victims."

May 12  Geek Heaven review

"An emotional, brutal and beautiful story about love, life and the prospect of death. About losing and finding oneself in situations that can seem hopeless. About finding faith in the darkest of moments if one looks for it in the right places. Above all, it is a story about family. The love and the hurt, and everything in between."

"THE FAR END OF HAPPY is an intense novel. It will stir up all types of feelings in you, they won't all be easy to deal with at times. Ms. Craft does an excellent job of making you feel like you are right there with Ronnie, Janet and Beverly. These characters and what they have gone through will stay with you for a long time after you close the novel."
