Early praise for In the Vanishing Hour:
"The entwined historical narratives of In the Vanishing Hour unfold with graceful, pensive ease, forming a portrait of coming of age in small town New England, illuminating the struggle for identity independent of place and circumstance. In the process, Sarah Beth Martin weaves two seemingly disparate mysteries into one, exposing just how often we allow our life’s trajectory to be chosen by our darkest secrets. A shimmering, unforgettable journey of truth and self-discovery."
—Gillian French, Edgar Award nominated author of Sugaring Off and The Lies They Tell
"In the Vanishing Hour is a beautifully written story of haunting suspense. In it, a woman becomes a living ghost, taking on a missing coworker's likeness to haunt the man she believes is responsible. This atmospheric mystery is layered and emotional. Sarah Beth Martin's prose is smooth and the narrative moves at a pleasant clip. I'm officially a fan!"
—Caitlin Wahrer, Edgar Award nominated author of The Damage
