Sarah Dunant recommends
The Shining Mountains (2023)
Alix Christie
"The Shining Mountains takes its history seriously. Love, treachery, violence, and honour, it is all here in a novel to be savoured."
A Net for Small Fishes (2021)
Lucy Jago
"A terrific first novel, rich in colour, character, place, and time. If you like your history spiced with sex, scandal, and the sweet sensibilities of female friendship, then this is for you."
Meet Me At the Museum (2018)
Anne Youngson
"A wise and tender novel. Proof that the richest fruits come on the edge of autumn."
