The Race for Paris is the recipient of the David J. Langum, Sr. Prize for American Historical Fiction, Honorary Mention for 2015! It’s also a national bestseller, a BBC’s 10 Best summer reads of 2015, a Glamour Magazine recommended read, and an Indie Next Great Read — a list of favorite handsells recommended by booksellers across the country! It’s already available in hardcover, ebook, and audio, and large print, and it releases in paperback August 16, 2016!
The Wednesday Sisters was named one of “25 Essential Best Friend Novels”—along with the likes of The Three Musketeers, Harry Potter, Michael Chabon’s The Mysteries of Pittsburg, Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club, and Mary McCarthy’s The Group—in Entertainment Weekly.
