Independent Publisher Book Awards – Silver Medal – Best Regional Fiction
While You Were Gone is an open-hearted and complex story of an amazing family, told with such confidence that I could not put it down. Sybil Baker has the enviable ability to populate her work with characters who feel so nuanced and real that you can’t believe that you haven’t always known these people, that they haven’t always been a part of your life. And when I finished this beautiful story, I found myself unable to forget them.
–Kevin Wilson, author of The Family Fang and Perfect Little World
