"Heartbreaking, poignant, and emotional, BEFORE YOU GO is a compelling page-turner about second chances, learning to trust, and finding your way home. Kelly Heard's writing is exquisite, her story beautifully told. I was drawn in from page one until done." --Kerry Lonsdale, Wall Street Journal & Washington Post bestselling author

"Like Barbara Kingsolver, Heard understands and loves this land. She writes about the Blue Ridge Mountains with a lyrical reverence that they deserve...If this is her first book, then Heard will eventually take her place beside the giants of Appalachian Lit, including Kingsolver, Lee Smith, and Sharyn McCrumb." -- Dr. Kelly A. Dorgan

"Compelling... a must-read!... Kept me hooked throughout. I totally appreciated this fantastic debut." -- Brianne's Book Reviews
