When Johnny Came Marching Home (2012)
William Heffernan
"Sliding back and forth in time--before, during, and after the Civil War--William Heffernan creates a powerful, intriguing, and complex novel about the intricacies of friendship and the devastating effects of war."
Afterlife (2020)
Julia Alvarez
"Ravishing and heartfelt, Afterlife explores the complexities of familial devotion and tragedy against a backdrop of a world in crisis, and the ways in which we struggle to maintain hope, faith, compassion and love. This is Julia Alvarez at her best and most personal."
And There He Kept Her (2022)
(Ben Packard, book 1)
Joshua Moehling
"There's a terrific new voice in crime fiction and it belongs to Joshua Moehling. And There He Kept Her is a taut, beautifully written thriller reminiscent of Karin Slaughter. A novel with heart, its protagonist, acting Sheriff Ben Packard, is the kind of hero we need today, a man wrestling with his sexual identity as he searches for missing teens in a small Minnesota town guarding secrets of its own."
They Believed They Were Safe (2022)
Cordelia Frances Biddle
"In a tale of conflicted affections and obsession, of abuse and memory, the past resonates in the present to expose a friendship and explode a marriage with tragic consequences. They Believed They Were Safe is complex, masterful storytelling at its best deftly mixing tragedy with courage and ultimately with survival."
