Cathy Marie Buchanan recommends
Three Souls (2013)
Janie Chang
"In this highly original, capriciously imagined tale, Song Leiyin journeys to the afterlife in the company of three guiding souls. As her life in tumultuous 1920s China is recounted, readers are treated to a deft examination of the woe and splendour of family and the human heart."
The Lost Vintage (2018)
Ann Mah
"In elegant prose, Ann Mah spreads before her readers a sumptuous feast--a gripping mystery, a heartfelt love story, and a fascinating historical account. Awash in beautifully rendered detail, The Lost Vintage effortlessly glides between the vineyards of modern day Burgundy and the terrors of Nazi-occupied France. Graceful and compelling."
The Last Exiles (2021)
Ann Shin
"The Last Exiles offers a fascinating glimpse into North Korea, [and] the desperate measures undertaken to escape its guarded walls. A rich testament to human resilience and, ultimately, to love."
Revelations (2021)
Mary Sharratt
"Set during a time of fervid religious persecution, Mary Sharratt’s carefully researched, capaciously imagined Revelations brings to vivid life 15th century Christian mystic Margery Kempe. A transporting novel that captures both the harsh reality of medieval womanhood and the mystery of the divine."
