Amanda Craig recommends
Bonjour, Sophie (2024)
Elizabeth Buchan
"A poignant, charming and cheering story of a girl's growth into womanhood in 1960s Paris."
The Square of Sevens (2023)
Laura Shepherd-Robinson
"A gorgeously written and plotted Georgian thriller with elements of Moll Flanders, theatre, cartomancy, and Bath. It's as absorbing as Charles Palliser's The Quincunx."
Speak to Me (2023)
Paula Cocozza
"There are three of us in this - you, me and your mobile. How many couples have said this to each other? Paula Cocozza's witty, wry new novel is sharp as a skewer about the devices and desires in many modern marriages. I loved it."
