Brunonia Barry recommends
The Book of Fires (2009)
"This astonishing description of 18th-century England, the creation of fireworks, and the determined Agnes held me happily captive."
On the Broken Shore (2010)
"Wonderfully mythical... a story of guilt, alienation, and the power of the sea to transform and heal."
Jane Was Here (2011)
"An eerie story that not only kept me guessing but kept me up at night. Sarah Kernochan delivers a quirky tale with the perfect amount of creepiness, intrigue, and small town New England politics. A perfect choice for book clubs."
The House of Velvet and Glass (2012)
(Lost Book of Salem, book 2)
"Richly atmospheric, The House of Velvet and Glass transported me to the turn of the twentieth century and a world changing as rapidly and irrevocably as our own. A gifted historian and storyteller, Katherine Howe has created a vividly imagined world that made me want to suspend time, lingering just a bit longer with the characters who live there, before the whole thing vanished in the clouded glass."
The Secrets of Mary Bowser (2012)
"Masterfully written... Shines a new light onto our country's darkest history. Balancing fire and grace, the story of Mary Bowser takes us from hatered to courage to love."
The Clover House (2013)
Henriette Lazaridis Power
