Product description

Review

"THE GREAT UNKNOWABLE END is unlike any book I've read. Take a small-town paranormal mystery, drop in a 70s commune, add a dash of haunting familial histories, and a hefty scoop of Science vs. Art, and voila: a book to delight the likes of Carl Sagan himself. Ormsbee's latest is a big-minded, full-hearted treat of a novel."--David Arnold, New York Times bestselling author of The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik

It's a rare author who can imagine a story like this. It's a rarer author with the ambition to try it. And it's the rarest of all who can execute it in such lyrical, haunting beauty. Kathryn Ormsbee is that author. Breathtakingly imaginative and ambitious; dazzlingly beautiful and profound. This story of love and fervor will grip you and won't let go. Not even after you've finished. A hauntingly beautiful and wildly imaginative story of faith, fervor, coming of age, and connection. Masterfully rendered and spellbinding."--Jeff Zentner, Morris Award-winning author of The Serpent King

"Fantastic premise meets perfect execution in this heartfelt and wholly original novel."--Kerry Kletter, author of The First Time She Drowned

"A mesmerizing, trippy, and fantastic story about finding yourself in the most extraordinary circumstances in the most ordinary of places. Ormsbee has written a coming-of-age novel like no other."--Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces

"Realism with a hint of science fiction will inspire readers to question their own trajectories."--Kirkus Reviews "November 21, 2018 "

"Told in alternating perspectives by Stella and Galliard, Ormsbee (Tash Hearts Tolstoy) skillfully parallels nature's disturbances with her characters' internal turmoil to create a suspenseful story about self-discovery and following one's dreams amid a life's complications"--Publisher's Weekly "December 3, 2018 "

About the Author
