Daring Debut: THE MEMORY PAINTER

Friends, we’re a bit obsessed with Gwendolen Womack’s THE MEMORY PAINTER. This riveting debut novel is a taut thriller and a timeless love story spanning six continents and 10,000 years of history that stems from this idea: What if neuroscientists accidentally unlocked the secret to reincarnation with a drug?

It’s an Indie Next pick for May 2015 and Gwendolen Womack did a feature interview in Library Journal about the book (they loved it—see the starred review below)!
Plus, this fabulous book trailer conveys the cinematic reading experience:
