Sabin Willett is a practicing lawyer and the author of three novels: The Deal, The Betrayal, and Present Value. He lives in Natick, Massachusetts.
"Extremely well crafted . . . a transfixing book . . . not only
resplendent in love but in suffering as well. If you haven't read
Wuthering Heights, this makes no difference. One book can be
enjoyed without the other, but if you do read both, you will see
the modern day equivalent of a masterpiece of literature."--
"Hewn from the same emotional landscape as Wuthering Heights, Abide with Me pulses with the dark pain of lost love and obsession. In prose that glints and sparks like gunfire, Sabin Willett makes Roy Murphy a dangerously compelling 21st century Heathcliff, the haunted, driven boy from nowhere who returns battle-hardened from war in Afghanistan to stake his claim on the one who got away."--Deborah Lawrenson, author of The Lantern
"In their unsettling romance that crosses small town social lines as well as the oceans and continents between Vermont and Afghanistan, the lovers at the core of Abide with Me strip away all that is unnecessary as they seek the essence of true love: it may stumble, but it will always survive. Sabin Willett has written a passionate, gripping novel of modern tragedy and timeless love."--Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain
"Sabin Willett mines his settings of Afghanistan and smalltown New England with equal gusto. Abide with Me is a big, generous, tasty, funny, rich novel."--Stewart O'Nan, author of The Odds: A Love Story
"The insights and skill of the author, a Guantanamo Bay defense attorney, make Abide worth a read."-- "People, 3 stars"
Willet's reinterpretation of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights adds a fresh contemporary take to a classic love story.-- "Library Journal"
