Joy McCullough recommends
Song of Freedom, Song of Dreams (2024)
Shari Green
"Crafted as intricately as a Bach concerto, SONG OF FREEDOM, SONG OF DREAMS swept me into a historical world as well researched and compellingly depicted as it is relevant to today's reader."
All the Fighting Parts (2023)
Hannah V Sawyerr
"Gutsy and defiant, All the Fighting Parts is a battle hymn for loud-mouthed girls, and a searing invitation to all - but especially survivors - to speak their truth."
Spin (2023)
Rebecca Caprara
"In Spin, Rebecca Caprara pulls together threads of millennia-old stories and weaves a completely fresh tapestry that unravels what we thought we knew of Arachne. From the first page, lush, self-assured verse immerses readers in a world both mythic and all too familiar. A tour de force!"
