Praise for "Sleep Toward Heaven": 'Ward's no-nonsense, unflinching prose and her complex but never confounding structure make this novel very tough to put down.

But her greater triumph is her ability to humanize all these characters' - Pam Houston, "'O' The Oprah Magazine". 'It's funny and sad and redemptive. Read it now. Thank me later' - Jennifer Weiner, the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Good in Bed" and "In Her Shoes". 'Women's Death Row as you have never seen it; hauntingly rich, wise and sharply etched' - James Ellroy. 'How do we forgive the unforgivable?First-time novelist Ward explores this question with a delicate blend of compassion, humour and realism - Her spare but psychologically rich portraits are utterly convincing' - "Publishers Weekly".
