The Promise of Stardust by Priscille Sibley is getting lots of praise, e.g.:
“Sibley wrestles with the most complex medical ethics in our time and gives us characters who will stay with us long after the last page. She is a skilled storyteller.” –- Jacqueline Sheehan, author of Lost & Found
“I read this first novel two times. The first time, I was intrigued. The second time, I felt privileged to share in such an amazing story.” -- Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean
“Sibley does a wonderful job of exploring a complex and controversial moral issue, skillfully giving both sides of the story…. This is a gripping, thoughtful,heart-wrenching, and well-written debut that would be a great discussion vehicle for certain book groups.” -- Booklist
As a neonatal intensive care nurse, Sibley has the experience and genuine voice to tackle the sensitive issues faced in her first novel. It is the touching, sad and beautifully written account of a family faced with a decision no one should ever have to make.
