Critical Praise

“FAR FROM HERE, Nicole Baart's tale of the certainties of absolute fear and the uncertainty of love whirls the reader up and never lets go.”
   --- Jacquelyn Mitchard, New York Times bestselling author, THE DEEP END OF THE OCEAN, and SECOND NATURE: A Love Story

“Nicole Baart is a writer of immense strength. Her lush, beautiful prose, her finely drawn characters, and especially her quirky women, all made FAR FROM HERE a book I couldn’t put down.”
   --- Sandra Dallas, New York Times bestselling author of PRAYERS FOR SALE and THE BRIDE'S HOUSE

“FAR FROM HERE was a rare journey to a place that left me healed and renewed by the end of this beautiful, moving novel. A tribute to love in all its forms --- between a man and a wife, between sisters, and among mothers and daughters --- my heart ached while I read Far From Here, but it ached more when I was done and there were no more pages to turn.”
    --- Nicolle Wallace, New York Times bestselling author of EIGHTEEN ACRES

“Nicole Baart is a huge talent who has both a big voice and something meaningful to say with it. FAR FROM HERE is a gorgeous book about resilient people living in a broken world, finding ways to restore hope and even beauty in the pieces.”
    --- Joshilyn Jackson, author of GODS IN ALABAMA and A GROWN UP KIND OF PRETTY
