Fiona Davis recommends
What Wild Women Do (2023)
Karma Brown
"Brown's latest is a remarkable story of two complicated women, almost fifty years apart, trying to make a mark in a world that often demeans and trivializes their dreams. Set in the lush Adirondack forest, the story addresses feminism, friendship, and the creative spirit, and is guaranteed to keep readers guessing until the very end. A terrific read."
Nineteen Steps (2023)
Millie Bobby Brown
"In this remarkable debut, Brown brings to life an unfamiliar - and shocking - tragedy that took place during World War II in London's East End. Supported by a rich cast of characters, her tale of first love, poignant regrets, and the search for truth makes for a spellbinding read. Enthralling."
Bessie (2023)
Linda Kass
"Kass has written a detailed, fascinating profile of the early years of the former Miss America that explores the themes of prejudice, beauty, and self-worth. Insightful and eye-opening."
The St. Ambrose School for Girls (2023)
Jessica Ward
"Ward tells the story of a vulnerable teen struggling to fit in at a tony boarding school with deep compassion and a lyrical ferocity. A riveting, twisty read."
Queen of Exiles (2023)
Vanessa Riley
"A sweeping look at the political, social, and romantic intrigue surrounding Haiti's first and only queen. Riley's depiction is richly imagined and wholly original."
Hotel Laguna (2023)
Nicola Harrison
"Harrison perfectly captures the breezy, sun-soaked landscape of Southern California in her latest, and approaches WWII fiction in an utterly unique way: from the point of view of a woman who found her bliss building planes while the men were off fighting, and then must reconfigure her identity when the jobs disappear. With its eccentric cast of characters and a beautifully layered plot, this is one unforgettable read."
