Alice Randall recommends
The Great Mrs. Elias (2022)
Barbara Chase-Riboud
"Barbara Chase-Riboud, the preeminent practitioner of African-American historical fiction, closes a sextet of novels based on invisible black women stronger than she began, and she began with Sally Hemmings. Love, murder, race, class, and memory collide in a mesmerizing swirl of licit and illicit desire that was old New York in the age of the robber barons across the pages of The Great Mrs. Elias. This is a delicious read that lives in profound conversation with Wharton's House of Mirth, Fitzgerald's, The Great Gatsby, and the earlier titles in this provocative series."
