Rosellen Brown recommends
This Side of Married
This Side of Married (2004)
Rachel Pastan
"Jane Austen's honey-and-vinegar spirit is alive and well in Rachel Pastan's delightful novel."
The Slow Moon
The Slow Moon (2006)
Elizabeth Cox
"Beautifully written and sympathetically imagined, The Slow Moon tells its all-too-timely story without a shred of the sensational or strident. Elizabeth Cox has a sensitive touch, and she brings to rich life a deeply tangled web of characters. This is the kind of book you will read in one long, rewarding sitting."
Grand River and Joy
Grand River and Joy (2009)
Susan Messer
"With unsparing candor, Susan Messer thrusts us into a time when racial tensions sundered friends and neighbors and turned families upside down. The confrontations in Grand River and Joy are complex, challenging, bitterly funny, and---painful though it is to acknowledge it---spot-on accurate."

Wayward Saints (2012)
Suzzy Roche
"I'm jealous! How can it be that someone who sings like Suzzy Roche can also write this well, tell us so much not only about the music business but about the large hearts of her characters, the locales of their deepest pain and the sources of their strength? Her language is dazzling -- unpredictable, supremely funny, irreverent, and full of authority. Wayward Saints is the best and most surprising debut novel I've read since I can't remember when."
