Louise Fein recommends
The Girls from the Beach (2021)
"The Girls from the Beach is a unique and incredibly imaginative story inspired by the nurses who worked on the front line in World War Two. It is action-packed and full of unexpected drama around every turn I just had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next! Readers who enjoyed Newton's earlier books will be sure to love this one."
The Light of Luna Park (2021)
"At once a fascinating slice of history and a compelling story filled with relatable characters. Addison Armstrong has woven a beautiful tale around the sacrifices and hard choices made for love, and highlights the work of the extraordinary individuals who stood up against the widespread, harsh beliefs of the time. This is a wonderful debut. Congratulations to Ms. Armstrong!"
Black Drop (2021)
(Laurence Jago, book 1)
"A wonderful, delicious treat of a book set in 1790s London. I was utterly transported to a world of political intrigue, spies and suspect deaths."
The Soviet Sisters (2022)
"This is a masterful, brilliantly plotted novel. I was gripped from the first pages, never knowing which of the sisters' first-person narratives to trust or what would happen next. Cleverly playing on concepts of truth, ideology, and loyalty, the characters in The Soviet Sisters are put to ultimate tests of morality. Immaculately researched and eloquently written, Scott's novel provides the reader a very clear sense of the tension and political complexity of a tumultuous time. I thoroughly enjoyed it."
That Bonesetter Woman (2022)
"That Bonesetter Woman is a wonderfully uplifting, charming, addictive and unusual story. Quinn delivers astute and acutely observed aspects of human behaviour delivered with great humour and compassion. Replace the coffee houses and newspaper scribblers with Twitter and YouTube and I'd say, not so much has changed!"
