Helen and Rachel McCallister, who live in a town called Roam, are as different as sisters can be: Helen, older, bitter, and conniving; Rachel, beautiful, naïve—and blind. When their parents die suddenly, Rachel has to rely on Helen for everything, but Helen embraces her role in all the wrong ways, convincing Rachel that the world is a dark and dangerous place she couldn’t possibly survive on her own . . . or so Helen believes, until Rachel makes a surprising choice that turns both their worlds upside down. 

In this new novel, Southern literary master Daniel Wallace returns to the tradition of tall tales and folklore made memorable in his bestselling novel Big Fish. Wildly inventive and beautifully written, The Kings and Queens of Roam is a big-hearted tale of family and the ties that bind.

  1. Oooo this is the second really positive review I've seen for this book. Also, am I the last person to not have read or seen Big Fish? Cause that was a movie a few years back, right? Or am I confused? It happens.


  2. Alot of lovely words, that would definitely make me want to read this. Great way to review a book! (I will steal your idea oneday when I'm pressed for time 😀 )


  3. I didn't even know Big Fish was actually a book. I only know the movie. :p I'm definitely going to read it and I added this one also to my TBR 🙂


  4. So glad that you enjoyed this one. I've been wanting to buy the hardcover of this one since reading it way back – it is soooooo lovely to look at but I keep blowing my book buying budget on other ones..whoops!
