The Girls in the Stilt House (2021)
Kelly Mustian
"In prose that is stunning and assured, Kelly Mustian forges a powerful story of two young women, thrust together after unspeakable loss and devastation, and their courageous struggle to emerge from their darkest hours."
All the Children Are Home (2021)
Patry Francis
"At the heart of Patry Francis’ brilliant new novel is a gorgeous and powerful exploration of unconditional love--masterful in scope and saturated with breathtaking truths on every page. A timeless story set in the 1950s, All the Children Are Home embraces the many voices of the Moscatelli’s foster children and their foster mother—all of them harmed by trauma, abuse and, most of all—abandonment—as they wrestle with the darkest forces of humanity and forge their way toward the light."
The Orphan Collector (2020)
Ellen Marie Wiseman
"Ellen Marie Wiseman has done it again: masterfully recreated a time of crisis in American history--rendering the flu epidemic of 1918 to reveal its devastating impact on families and, most especially, children, who too often endure the egregious actions of amoral adults. The Orphan Collector is a story that relentlessly pursues those intent on committing evil deeds and those who have the courage to defy them. A breathtaking examination of family and social systems."
