From debut author Lindsey Frazier comes a raw and honest memoir about identity, overcoming trauma, and the sheer beauty that can be found in life if we open ourselves up to love.

“I can’t do this anymore,” Lindsey Frazier says to her husband, moments after throwing her wedding ring across the room. It’s here that her memoir Oh Love, Come Close begins, just one week after her wedding day.

Volatile, unpredictable, and emotionally charged, Frazier finds that the primary emotion she’s experiencing during the so-called honeymoon phase of marriage isn’t happiness or joy―it’s loss. She can’t shake the feeling that a part of her died the day she got married. When she finally faces her past, she discovers pieces of herself―of her own identity―that she never previously dared to acknowledge. After her husband’s desperate pleas, she agrees to seek the help needed to navigate the murky waters that lie ahead, not just to save her marriage but to save herself. In doing so, she uncovers deep fears and unhealed traumas, the grief and losses that caused her to flee her hometown and distance herself from it all.

Oh Love, Come Close explores the emotional wounds that fragmented a woman’s identity, and the retracing of steps needed to pick up the pieces left behind―her sexuality, spirituality, fidelity, and a complicated past. Frazier unearths her buried wounds and finds that in order to fully live, to fully love and be loved, she has to reclaim all the pieces of herself, no matter how painful they might be.

This searing memoir is at once vivid and dreamlike, and Frazier’s arresting prose will draw readers deeply into this intimate narrative.


Lindsey Frazier is an author, a poet, and an advocate. Her writing style is a reflection of the way she lives: full of fierce, unapologetic love and hard-learned truths. She has spent the last decade of her life advocating for those on the margins, from her work in a day center for the homeless to becoming a certified Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) and a Victims of Violent Crime Assistant in the local prosecutors’ office. Her conviction to embrace others through an active love is what keeps her awake at night.

Oh Love, Come Close is Lindsey’s first memoir, but you can find her poetry in Nashville Poets Quarterly and The Fold, both local to Nashville, Tennessee, where she spent fifteen years of her life before returning to her home state of Indiana in 2020. In 2021 she won AAF Nashville’s Co-Copywriter of the Year for a piece titled “Create More” that she co-authored with her husband, Jonathan. Her seven-day devotional, “Oh Love, Come Close: Seven Paths to Healing and Finding Freedom in Christ”―which has over 10K completions―is available on the popular YouVersion app

Lindsey lives in Indianapolis, Indiana, with her husband and their three children. When she is not at home binge-watching Schitt’s Creek or shuffling kids to their respective extracurricular activities, you’ll most likely find Lindsey sipping wine with a friend, taking her dog Benny on a hike, or dropping her kayak in the water on those warm summer days.
