Isabelle Day Refuses to Die of a Broken Heart

September 2015
University of Minnesota Press
hardcover: ISBN 978-0-8166-9799-1

How can Isabelle ever express to Margaret and Grace how grateful she is for their friendship, just when she needed it most?

It’s the Midwest in the early 1960s, and Isabelle is reeling from a loss that’s too hard to think—let alone talk—about. With characteristic sensitivity and wit, Jane St. Anthony reveals how a girl’s life clouded with grief can also hold a world of promise.

Kirkus Reviews
...Each character is finely delineated, contributing to the plausibility of Isabelle’s situation. Gently depicted incidents of everyday life believably provide a balm for Isabelle’s aching soul.

Stories for the middle-grade audience that deal with the suicide of a parent are few, and this one, sensitive but never syrupy, stands out.
