The Women's March: A Novel of the 1913 Women's Suffrage Procession

by Jennifer Chiaverini

"In her latest women-focused historical novel, Chiaverini offers an impassioned account that pulls readers in, making the details feel freshly alive. This politically aware novel about a historic quest for democratic justice compels readers to contemplate everything that has and hasn't changed regarding voting rights and gender and racial equality." -- Booklist

The Keeper of Lost Things

by Ruth Hogan

A charming, clever, and quietly moving novel of of endless possibilities and joyful discoveries that explores the promises we make and break, losing and finding ourselves, the objects that hold magic and meaning for our lives, and the surprising connections that bind us. "Hogan's writing has the soothing warmth of the cups of cocoa and tea her characters regularly dispense...old-fashioned storytelling with a sprinkling of magic." -- Kirkus
