Caroline Woods recommends
Horses of Fire (2023)
A D Rhine
"A.D. Rhine's Horses of Fire is a feminist retelling of the Trojan War from the point of view of its famous women, whose stories we may have heard but whose thoughts and desires we have sorely missed, until now. In this enthralling version of the story, the women of Troy, queens and servants alike, bend the course of history as they work together in secret and solidarity. Full of surprises, gorgeous and thrilling."
Not Alone (2023)
Sarah K Jackson
"Sarah K. Jackson's Not Alone is an ode to ferocious power of motherhood, even in the face of Earth's utter devastation. Part dire warning, part love song, Not Alone explores how, like a tree bending toward sunlight, life may endure if our worst climate nightmares become reality. Haunting, endearing, and captivating."
Camp Zero (2023)
Michelle Min Sterling
"The future Michelle Sterling imagines in Camp Zero is recognizably our own, if we do nothing to halt climate change: one in which the powerful find new and devastating ways to exploit both the earth and its people. But all is not as it seems. In a series of ingenious twists and increasingly tight connections, Sterling imagines how, in the chaos that ensues after the ice caps melt, our most marginalized brethren may gain a foothold to power. This is one of the best books I've read in a long time: it's mesmerizing, terrifying, and ultimately, hopeful."
The Winter Sister (2019)
"The Winter Sister is a can't-put-down debut about mothers and daughters, sisters and secrets. The myth of Demeter and Persephone thunders in the background of this suspenseful story, adding richness to its mystery. Chilling and beautifully crafted."
