“Empty Arms beautifully illustrates the powerful bond between a mother and a child, under even the most challenging circumstances.”
“Erika Liodice's Empty Arms is a compelling novel about haunting secrets, risk and consequence, and one woman's journey to build a future out of the scattered ashes of her past. A beautiful debut.”
Erika Liodice, who established herself as an author to watch with the release of her powerful debut novel EMPTY ARMS (Dreamspire Press; November 2011), has partnered with New York City-based voice artist Brooke Boertzel to produce the title as an audiobook. A moving story about forced adoptions, sealed records, and their devastating
impact on an entire generation of women, Empty Arms explores just how far a mother will go to find her child in this gripping first novel.
