Lynda Cohen Loigman recommends
The English Wife (2018)
"Full of Gilded Age glamour and Gothic suspense, The English Wife will haunt readers long after the story ends. Willig draws us in immediately - not just with an opulent setting and sensational gossip - but with a crime so visually stunning, I was left gasping for air by the end of chapter one. From London to old New York, readers will be mesmerized. Willig's writing is so smart and her pacing so masterful that readers will be guessing until the very last page. The English Wife combines the all insight of Edith Wharton with the tension and intrigue of Daphne du Maurier. It is Willig at her very best and most compelling."
The Summer List (2018)
Amy Mason Doan
"In her mesmerizing debut, Amy Mason Doan challenges everything we think we know about family and forgiveness. Readers will be swept up in this haunting story of buried secrets and lost love."
The Subway Girls (2018)
Susie Orman Schnall
"This is a must read for fans of modern-day fiction and historical fiction alike. There is so much to love in this story - all the satisfying nostalgia of the post-war advertising world, and all the excitement of present-day New York."
Mother Country (2019)
"Heartbreaking and hopeful all at once, Irina Reyn's Mother Country, is a dazzling story of a mother's promise postponed, but never truly broken."
The Secret of Clouds (2019)
"In her new novel, Alyson Richman weaves storytelling magic with an extraordinary cast of characters: a compassionate young teacher, a precocious but ailing student, and an immigrant couple with a uniquely tragic past. Readers have come to expect Richman’s luscious prose and vivid details, but in The Secret of Clouds, she delivers even more I was thoroughly captivated by this deeply personal tale of perseverance, acceptance, and the heart’s capacity for love."
