"The Possible World doesn't shrink from grimness and is as grippy as any crime novel yet is ultimately joyful and optimistic." -- Anne Marie Scanlon * The Irish Independent *
"In hauntingly beautiful prose, Schwarz weaves a complicated story that spans nearly a century, from the Great Depression until the present day... Full of imagination and nostalgia, loss and redemption." * Kirkus Review *
"This beautiful story of loss and memory by Liese O'Halloran Schwarz is a joy." * Good Housekeeping *
"The Possible World is a luminous read, full of paradoxes. It's a riveting page-turner, yet exquisitely written. It's as smart as a whip but also deeply wise, unflinchingly truthful yet compassionate, epic and yet intimate. How the three stories are woven into a satisfying whole is short of miraculous. It's rare that a book brings me so much joy that I cry in rapture. But The Possible World did that and more. I found it utterly transformative." * Tor Udall, author of 'A Thousand Paper Birds' *
"Oh how I have LOVED this. Definitely a book I've read with my heart. A beautiful entwining story of three extraordinary characters." * Nina Pottell, journalist *
