Megan Chance recommends
The Devil and Mrs. Davenport (2024)
Paulette Kennedy
"The Devil and Mrs. Davenport is a page-turning, twisty 1950s gothic with poignant feminist themes and tense paranormal elements. Un-putdownable!"
The Woman in the Castello (2023)
Kelsey James
"The 1960s in Rome, a crumbling Italian castle on the edge of a volcanic lake, a glamorous aunt she's never met, and a starring role in a horror movie that begins to feel a bit too real...Kelsey James's debut novel is a delicious Gothic filled with atmosphere, twists, romance, and dark secrets. Readers will devour it."
The Fire and the Ore (2022)
Olivia Hawker
"A beautiful and nuanced story about a little-known and little-understood period of history and three women who have every reason to dislike one another but, driven by different levels of faith, need, and ambition, find their way to a deep and lasting bond. The Fire and the Ore is a well-researched and deeply felt novel of tragedy, hope, and connection."
