PRAISE FOR BEND TOWARD THE SUN

“Devon breaks hearts and puts them back together again in her tear-jerking debut.” – Publishers Weekly [Full review.]

“Devon is an author who is already breathing fresh life into the genre. A contemporary romance that manages to be evocative, angsty, moving, and filled with little indescribable moments between two people that hold staggering emotional significance. A lush vineyard creates the irresistible backdrop for its leads, Rowan and Harry, to fall deeply in love with one another, but also establish a connection that gives them both the ability to heal from past hurts. Everything always returns to their dynamic, and by the end of the story, you’ll be happy you went on this year-long journey with them, even if it might involve a slew of emotions in the process. Devon’s debut happens to be not just one of the best of contemporary romance, but one of the best books of the year.” – Paste Magazine
