Praise for Kay's Books

“Kay Bratt beautifully draws the story of a daughter returning to Maui—the enchanted land that she believes holds the key to her past—where she unlocks a promising future she never could have imagined. …True to Me is the ultimate escape.”


Kristy Woodson Harvey, bestselling author of Slightly South of Simple

“Nothing like a harrowing, life-threatening, and completely unplanned hike through Yosemite’s backcountry to make you face years of grief and guilt head on. Kay Bratt pulls this off masterfully in Dancing with the Sun, an emotional mother-daughter tale of love, forgiveness, and renewal.”


—Kerry Lonsdale, Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author

“[Dancing with the Sun is] a baring-of-the-soul emotional story that leaves you with a heart full of love and hope.” 


—Carolyn Brown, New York Times bestselling author

“Best friends Quinn and Maggie have spent the past year trying to outrun dangers from their pasts—one a stalker, the other family secrets. In this page-turning drama, Bratt has created two strong, dynamic female characters who readers will be sure to root for."


—Amanda Prowse, bestselling author of The Girl in the Corner

Wish Me Home has all the trademarks of a Kay Bratt novel: a heartwarming story that nourishes the soul, beloved characters, and a plot that kept me turning pages. Without shying away from the harshness of life, Bratt has managed to create a world in which kindness and goodness prevail.”


Karen McQuestion, bestselling author of Hello Love

No Place Too Far is Kay Bratt at her best. …Once again, Bratt tackles complex contemporary issues with remarkable agility and compassion, and it’s an absolute pleasure to be along for this ride. ...I forgot all about errands and laundry and the minivan and soaked up Hawaii, in all its glorious heritage and beauty.”
