Bessie (2023)
Linda Kass
"Abundant in graceful storytelling and vivid historical detail, Bessie is a fascinating portrait of a woman who was so much more than a beauty queen. Bess Myerson's persistence against antisemitism and her determination to use her fame to speak out against prejudice resonate strongly in our own challenging times."
thumb
The House of Lincoln (2023)
Nancy Horan
"Nancy Horan's nuanced portrait of Abraham Lincoln as his thoughts on emancipation evolve and her deft, revelatory use of narrators from marginalized communities enhance this compelling, beautifully crafted novel. The House of Lincoln evokes the past to illuminate the present as only the very best historical fiction can."

The Invincible Miss Cust (2022)
Penny Haw
"The Invincible Miss Cust is an absolute delight, an exceptional, immersive work of historical fiction set amid the beautifully detailed landscapes of Ireland and England."
