The Bloggiversary Giveaway has ended and the lucky winner is Laura P. Thank you for all of the entries!
I was lucky enough to read The Orphans of Race Point early when I got an advance copy to review for Library Journal, and have been evangelizing for ever since.
“a Dickensian story….Its themes of passionate treachery and abiding love play out in sometimes heartbreaking ways. Recommend to readers wondering what to read after The Goldfinch.” — Library Journal (starred review)
Patry Francis is also the author of an earlier novel, The Liar’s Diary, which is a little hard to find now, but well worth searching out. She lives in Massachusetts and I recently saw her again at the Speed Dating with Mass. Authors event at a library conference. We had lunch together afterwards! I’ve been a fan of hers since The Liar’s Diary came out (2007) and can’t wait for her next book, which she’s working on now.
