The Bachelorette Party (2024)
Sandra Block
"I will read anything Sandra Block writes. You should too."
Becoming Madam Secretary (2024)
Stephanie Dray
"Stephanie Dray is one of my absolute favorite authors of historical fiction, and her new novel Becoming Madam Secretary shows why. In the novel, Dray tells the story of the indomitable Frances Perkins....Dray's unique skill is telling the big picture of Frances's life, while at the same time making her a completely relatable wife in a difficult marriage and a working mother when that phrase was unheard of. I couldn't stop turning the pages in this novel, which is both an inspiration and a triumph!"
Bessie (2023)
Linda Kass
"Bessie, which brought to vivid life the coming-of-age of Bess Myerson, Miss America of 1945.ce of her era. In Kass's hands,she becomes every woman, and the amazing story of her time becomes the story of our time, too."
