"What We Keep to Ourselves is a breathtaking literary force of a novel. With melodious prose, Nancy Jooyoun Kim has crafted a page-turning mystery with thoughtful meditations on family, love, and connection. This novel is a searing portrait on how long-buried secrets, desperate hopes, and blind compromises shape the decisions that affect generations to come. Kim is a master storyteller!"

Sinners of Starlight City (2023)
Anika Scott
"Expansive and emotive, I couldn't put this book down. Amid the intrigue, revenge, and redemption set against the backdrop of the Chicago World's Fair, Anika Scott still manages to make Sinners of Starlight City a deeply intimate story about family with characters that jump off the page. Another notch in Scott's literary belt!"
