Today we’re spotlighting fiercely female books with a girl on the run with her four-year-old niece, a genre-bending story of a pregnant woman fleeing for the woods, and a richly imagined life of the world’s first feminist.
THE NEWCOMER by Mary Kay Andrews
“Andrews (HELLO, SUMMER, 2020) takes a slightly darker turn in her latest beachy read.”–Booklist

“Solomon’s outstanding third novel (after THE DEEP) revisits the themes of memory and responsibility through two new lenses: horror and contemporary thriller.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
LOVE AND FURY: A Novel of Mary Wollstonecraft by Samantha Silva
“Silva’s heartbreaking but inspiring work captures the despair and joy, convictions and contradictions of an extraordinary woman.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
