Praise for Before You Go

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." -- Ana K. Wrenn, author of Strange Attractors (2022)
