Meg Waite Clayton recommends
The Two-Family House (2016)
Lynda Cohen Loigman
"Lynda Cohen Loigman explores universal truths about family, and love, and loss."
The Scribe of Siena (2017)
Melodie Winawer
"THE SCRIBE OF SIENA is one part historical mystery and one part love story with a captivating dose of art mixed in for good measure. If that weren't enough, it all comes together in that most evocative of settings: Siena, Italy. Winawer's smart debut is a joy to read!"
Undiscovered Country (2018)
Kelly O'Connor McNees
"A wonderfully imagined, lively novel."
Ecstasy (2018)
Mary Sharratt
"A tender, intimate exploration of a complicated woman, Mary Sharratt’s Ecstasy renders in exquisitely researched detail and fiercely imagined scenes the life of Alma Mahler — daughter, wife, mother, lover, and composer — and the early 20th Century Vienna and New York in which she came of age. I loved this inspiring story of an early feminist standing up for her art."
The Lost Vintage (2018)
Ann Mah
"Ann Mah's The Lost Vintage is as rich and complex as a fine French Burgundy -- the perfect read for mystery lovers, history buffs, wine drinkers, Francophiles, and anyone interested in visiting the French wine country from a comfortable chair at home. Charmant!"
The Removes (2018)
Tatjana Soli
"Tatjana Soli weaves a stark western landscape, a national tragedy, and intimate portrayals of two pioneer women into a poignant and powerful tapestry of identity and belonging that will break your heart. I absolutely loved The Removes."
