The Tutor (2015)
Andrea Chapin
"A sumptuous, page-turning account of William Shakespeare's muse in 1590’s England. I was completely captivated."

We Were the Lucky Ones (2017)
Georgia Hunter
"Will leave you breathless...a brave and mesmerizing debut."

The Half-Drowned King (2017)
Linnea Hartsuyker
"Linnea Hartsuyker brings myth and legend roaring to life in this superbly good page-turning saga of Viking-era Norway. Hartsuyker is fearless as she navigates a harsh, exacting and hair-raising world, with icy fjords and raiding seasons and ancient blood feuds. But the book’s fiercest magic shines in the characters of Ragnvald and Svanhild, as unforgettable a brother and sister duo as I can remember in recent literature. Linnea Hartsuyker is an exciting, original voice in historical fiction, and The Half-Drowned King is nothing short of mesmerizing."

White Houses (2018)
Amy Bloom
"It seems a minor miracle, what Amy Bloom has done in White Houses. In Lorena Hickok’s unforgettable voice, she brings an untold slice of history so dazzlingly and devastatingly to life, it took my breath away. Easily, the most intimate, crackling, and expansive rendering of Eleanor Roosevelt in print, and, more than this, a dizzyingly beautiful tale of what it means to be human, and what it is to love."
