All the Ugly and Wonderful Things (2016)
Bryn Greenwood
"Achingly raw and beautifully written."
The Glass Forest (2018)
Cynthia Swanson
"The Glass Forest is the story of three strong women in the 1960s, one of whom has disappeared. Part family saga, part mystery, part coming of age, this richly detailed historical novel is both a fascinating portrait of a woman's life during this time and a meticulously plotted thriller. I absolutely devoured this gripping and beautifully written novel."
Boardwalk Summer (2018)
Meredith Jaeger
"In Boardwalk Summer, Meredith Jaeger expertly entwines two stories of two strong women living decades apart in Santa Cruz. By turns a gripping mystery, a richly-detailed exploration of history and family, and a beautiful love story - I was absolutely captivated."
Rush (2018)
Lisa Patton
"RUSH is a beautifully written coming-of-age novel, set against the backdrop of sorority rush in the south. Lisa Patton weaves an unforgettable story of friendship and the bonds between mothers and daughters, while also exploring larger themes of class, race, and inequality. An extraordinary and important novel – I absolutely loved it!"
Rust & Stardust (2018)
T Greenwood
"A lyrical and haunting meditation on family, love, and survival, this novel - and Sally Horner - stayed with me long after I turned the last page."
Not Our Kind (2018)
Kitty Zeldis
"Rich, evocative, and atmospheric, NOT OUR KIND by Kitty Zeldis is the story of two very different women whose chance meeting changes both their lives in the late 1940s New York. Zeldis weaves a beautifully written story not only about class and women’s roles, but also about love, friendship, motherhood, and coming of age. I was absolutely captivated by this stunning historical novel."
