Andrew David MacDonald recommends
The Book of Hidden Wonders (2020)
Polly Crosby
"Title notwithstanding, there’s nothing hidden about the many wonders of Polly Crosby’s magical debut. The troubled beauty of Romilly’s relationship to her father, and the wide-eyed wonder through which she sees the world, are just two reasons among a million that I’ve been shouting this novel’s praise to everyone I know. Yes, The Book of Hidden Wonders is a story about daughters and fathers, but it’s more than that: it’s a treatise on how to find hope in a universe rife with heartbreak and loss. May it light some of your darkest hours the way it has mine."
