Jennifer Chambliss Bertman recommends
Wider than the Sky (2021)
Katherine Rothschild
"I haven’t stopped thinking about these sisters since I first read Wider than the Sky. Sabine and Blythe will leap off the page and live in your memories like old friends. There is so much heart and humor in Katherine’s writing; even as her characters grapple with serious concerns and issues, she captures how life can slice us open and yet give us the ability to laugh and love and hope through the deepest pain and loss."
The Artifact Hunters (2020)
Janet Fox
"A gripping, magical page-turner."
