Donna Morrissey recommends
Gin, Turpentine, Pennyroyal, Rue (2023)
Christine Higdon
"Christine Higdon is a brilliant storyteller. Gin, Turpentine, Pennyroyal, Rue is a joy and a privilege to read; undoubtedly one of the best books I've read in years."
The Sister's Tale (2021)
Beth Powning
"Beth Powning is one helluva good writer."
One Who Has Been Here Before (2021)
Rebecca Babcock
"Rebecca Babcock has done what most good writers do: taken an old story and made it new again. One Who Has Been Here Before is wonderfully written, evoking thought, questions, and ponderings long after the last page is read. First novel? I'm betting it won't be her last!"
