Critical Praise

"The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud is a perfect miracle of a love story. . . . Sherwood breaks your heart and heals it, somehow at the same time. I found the novel to be almost unbearably wonderful."

——Luanne Rice, bestselling author of The Perfect Summer

"Deeply romantic yet profound . . . full of suspense, intrigue, and the twists and turns of true love. . . . In Tess Carroll Sherwood has created a real woman of beauty and strength, a woman readers will relate to and cherish. I loved it!"

——Adrianna Trigiani, bestselling author of Lucia, Lucia

"The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud is one of the most magical love stories I've ever read. In his wonderfully inventive way, Ben Sherwood has written a shining affirmation of life."

——Sue Monk Kidd, author of The Secret Life of Bees

"Loved it, loved it, loved it!! Refreshingly romantic, dangerously good fun, hugely addictive. All too infrequently I pick up a book that is a pure pleasure to read….Intelligent, moving, and sweetly wise, Ben Sherwood is all set to find his way into the soft heart of American literature.";

——Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat
