"Wiersema provides a deep thriller that will keep his audience wondering until the revelatory final confrontation." --"The Midwest Book Review"
"Wiersema threads the supernatural throughout a novel grounded in domestic conflict and tragedy . . Intriguing." --"NY Daily News"
"An intelligent, contemplative supernatural thriller replete with well-rounded characters, artless dialogue and a plot that, while imbued with the unexplained, develops organically, revealing its secrets at just the right pace . . . an engrossing story of flawed but genuinely good people who must bear up under the stress of loss, betrayal, unwarranted miracles and unconventional spiritual warfare . . . an engaging, emotionally resonant read." --"Publisher's Weekly"
""Before I Wake" is a stunning debut. Robert Wiersema's novel is original, thought-provoking and downright wonderful." --Michael Connelly, "New York"" Times" #1 bestselling author of "The Closers"
"Riveting. . . grips the reader in a chokehold on page one and doesn't let go until the very last line. . . . Wiersema's story is utterly fearless, right to the very end. It never shies away or backs down from its questioning of faith, theology, morality and mystery. . . a unique, spellbinding, and ultimately uplifting gem." --"The Globe and Mail"
""""Before I Wake" provocatively dances along the lines between faith and science, life and death." --Andrew Pyper, author of "Lost Girls" and "The Wildfire Season"
