Cicadas Sing of Summer Graves (2023)
"Readers should prepare themselves to get lost in a dreamy, lush narrative, riddled with stirring subterfuge, captivating characters, and a visceral sense of place. Cicadas Sing of Summer Graves is a lyrical swarm of history, friendship, tragedy, and the limitlessness of reality. June, Lark, and Cassie are like sirens calling from a distant shore luring the reader further and further into the depths of understanding. You won't be able to put it down."
The Last Carolina Girl (2023)
"Leah's story is both humbling and inspiring. Church's ode to the natural world, to the often elusive feeling of home, and to the friends who become family provokes profound reflection. A dark spot in history warps Leah's path, but her resilient and unassailable character prevails. The Last Carolina Girl is a breathtaking read and Leah Payne an unforgettable character."
