Erin Lindsay McCabe recommends
The Spellbook of Katrina van Tassel (2018)
"Marrying forbidden love, devoted friendship, and the supernatural with Palombo's signature passion for music, storytelling, and heartbreaking choices, The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel enchants with a concoction of love, longing, and loss plucked from the bones of one of our most enduring and haunting legends."
The Woman in Red (2020)
"Anita Garibaldi is exactly the kind of courageous woman whose astonishing story of defiance and dedication -- to freedom and to her passions -- I've been craving. Told in her bold and unflinching voice, The Woman in Red by Diana Giovinazzo brings this brazen, complex woman -- and the man she fought beside -- vividly to life."
