The Convert's Song (2014)
(Valentine Pescatore, book 2)
"The Convert's Song is a revelation. Sure, it's a smart, gripping thriller that will have you turning the pages at high speed. But it's also a deep, emotionally resonant story of identity, friendship, and faith. I loved it."
Desperation Road (2017)
Michael Farris Smith
"Anchored by prose that is both poetic and brutal, Desperation Road is a gorgeous and violent book."
The Resurrection of Joan Ashby (2017)
"Cherise Wolas has delivered an audacious and dynamic first novel. The Resurrection of Joan Ashby is a remarkable tapestry of literary skill, emotional insight, and sensational storytelling."
"It will grab you...unsettle you...make you question the things you hold dear - family, marriage, and sanity. And it won't let go until the very end."
Heart Spring Mountain (2018)
"A revelation... As rich as the fertile earth and as powerful as a surging storm. Every page is filled with wonder and beauty, compassion and longing. The women MacArthur has brought to life... will haunt and inspire and stick around long after their stories are told."
