Review

'This summer I'm planning to read We Are Called to Rise by Laura McBride, because my wife says it's gorgeous and devastating'-- Guardian, Best Holiday Reads 2014<br ><br > <br ><br > 'The lives of an immigrant boy, a soldier returned from Iraq and a middle-aged woman whose life is falling apart, collide in this remarkable debut'-- Marie Claire<br ><br > <br ><br > 'In this beautiful and emotional read the lives of people from very different backgrounds (from a foster child to a war veteran) collide in an amazing coincidence'--Company<br ><br > <br ><br > 'The lives of an immigrant boy, a soldier returned from Iraq and a middle-aged woman whose life is falling apart, collide in this remarkable debut'--Red<br ><br >
'This book is compelling, emotional and heart-breaking all at the same time and the author has created a wonderful story about people. How they feel, how they respond to the devastating trials life throws at them and, crucially, how they are able to rebuild themselves' --The Sun


''Las Vegas is the setting, but rather than bright lights, this tells the story of four troubled strangers, whose lives collide after a tragedy. Narrated by each well-drawn character and cleverly plotted to lead to a central point, it packs a raw, emotional power' --Sunday Mirror


'Like Donna Tartt's... The Goldfinch, it strips a layer of gloss off the Las Vegas myth by moving to the families populating suburbia. A woman in a flagging marriage, an army vet and an eight-year old immigrant are the unlikely narrative trio' --Grazia

About the Author

Laura McBride is a writer and community college teacher in Las Vegas, Nevada. She once thought of herself as an adventurer, having travelled far from home on little more than a whim and a grin, but now laughs at the conventional trappings of her ordinary suburban life. She's been married for twenty-five years to an expat she met in Paris and has two lovely children. A long time ago, she went to Yale. We Are Called to Rise is her first novel.
