Alka Joshi recommends
No Two Persons (2023)
Erica Bauermeister
"The greatest compliment a writer can pay another is to say, 'I wish I'd written that.' Well, I wish I'd written No Two Persons. I couldn't put it down. Evocative. Brilliant. Complex. Immensely satisfying. Storytelling at its best. This is one I'll be recommending to all and sundry for a long time."
The Golden Doves (2023)
Martha Hall Kelly
"Breathtakingly told . . . Add this page-turner to the canon of female freedom fighters to whom we owe so much and who would go unrecognized were it not for authors like Kelly."
Once We Were Home (2023)
Jennifer Rosner
"Under Rosner's talented pen, simple prose turns into poetry and ordinary stories become complex, poignant. I found this forgotten history of displaced WWII children and the return to their roots captivating, thought-provoking, enlightening, and bittersweet."
