Beverly Swerling recommends
Three Souls (2013)
Janie Chang
"A triumph. There is so much magic here, such generous imagining. The prose sings while the story is told in surging crescendo that makes us race to know what happens."
The Underground River (2017)
Martha Conway
"Martha Conway's The Underground River is simply wonderful, a novel in which the women - good and bad - matter. The tale is told by young May Bedloe, who grows up and falls in love as the modest little show-boat drifts down the river between the small towns of the slave-holding South and the free North. May is pitched into the middle of the Slave vs Free drama not through conviction--though she does indeed know what's right--but by blackmail, until eventually she musters the courage to risk everything for another woman. I loved May, and I very much hope we have not seen the last of her."
