An avid traveler and self-taught historian, Lynn Cullen grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where she spent much of her childhood combing the public library for biographies and roaming the riverbank near where the legendary pioneer, Johnny Appleseed, planted a grove of apple trees.

Lynn Cullen recommends
Close Enough to Touch (2017)
Colleen Oakley
"Colleen Oakley takes on the big three--life, death, and love--and delivers a jewel. Before I Go absolutely glows with humor, wit, and compassion. I adore Oakley's fresh voice and could hardly bear for the book to end."
Becoming Belle (2018)
Nuala O'Connor
"Masterful storytelling! I was putty in Nuala O'Connor's hands. She made the unsinkable Belle Bilton and her down-to-earth sister Flo real to me, and brought 1880's London to my living room. Encore! Encore!"
The Latecomers (2018)
Helen Klein Ross
"For me, the best kind of historical fiction so expertly immerses you in the story and characters that you don't realize that you're receiving an education in the time and place. Helen Klein Ross does just this in The Latecomers. Her eye for accurate, interesting detail pertaining to the lives of women both upstairs and down in early twentieth century New York City and Connecticut, and her ear for the nuances of human behavior make for an engrossingly rich, unforgettable read. The breadth of her research in this novel astonishes me. I couldn't put it down."
The Light After the War (2020)
Anita Abriel
"Anita Abriel sweeps the reader around the world in this true tale of survival, endurance, and triumph. The Light After the War is a feast for the mind and the heart, not soon to be forgotten."
Millicent Glenn's Last Wish (2020)
Tori Whitaker
"I loved this story. Tori Whitaker has created characters who are irresistibly real and hard to leave behind! A meticulously crafted debut."
Fifth Avenue Glamour Girl (2023)
Renée Rosen
"Renee Rosen tells a page-turning story of resilience and self-determination even as she brings a household name to life. Through fascinating detail and heartfelt empathy, she illuminates Estee Lauder's determined rise to be the woman she always wanted to be. An inspiration for us all."
