"A page-turner. Richly wrought prose and intimate, vivid dialogue. A - ." - Entertainment Weekly

For over fifty years the Turners have lived on Yarrow Street. Their house has seen thirteen children get grown and gone - and some return; it has seen the arrival of grandchildren, the fall of Detroit's East Side, and the loss of a father. But when their powerful mother falls ill, the Turners are called home to decide their house's fate and to reckon with how their past haunts - and shapes - their future. The Turner House is a striking examination of the price we pay for our dreams, and the ways in which our families bring us home.

"An epic that feels deeply personal . . . Flournoy's finely tuned empathy infuses her characters with a radiant humanity." - O, The Oprah Magazine

"In this assured and memorable novel, [Flournoy] provides the feeling of knowing a family from the inside out, as we would wish to know our own." - New York Times Book Review
