Reviews

Praise for Jennifer Chiaverini: "Chiaverini offers an intimate and historically sound exploration of the years leading up to and through WWII . . . exceptionally insightful, making for a sweeping and memorable WWII novel."
--Publishers Weekly on Resistance Women
"Taking readers through times of war and peace as seen through the eyes of an extraordinary woman, the author brings Civil War Washington to vivid life through her meticulously researched authentic detail. Chiaverini's characters are compelling and accurate; the reader truly feels drawn into the intimate scenes at the White House."--Library Journal on Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker
An engaging glimpse of women's privilege and anguish during the Civil War era.--Kirkus Reviews on Mrs. Lincoln's Sisters
"Through meticulously researched historical detail and sympathetic portrayal of each character, including Mary herself, Chiaverini provides a fascinating glimpse into the women of an influential family on the front lines of some of the most important moments of that indelible time."--Booklist on Mrs. Lincoln's Sisters
"Chiaverini has drawn a loving portrait of a complex and gifted woman. . . . Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker helps to illuminate the path on which her long and remarkable life led her."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker
On March 3, 1913, a day before President Wilson's inauguration, suffragists marched down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC, to advocate for a constitutional amendment. 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
"Undeniably valuable and timely, informative and insightful. Chiaverini's latest work of historical fiction weaves together the actions of three real women, advocating for social and legal change while also speaking to the tensions regarding race, class, and rhetorical arguments that prevent these groups from working together smoothly (if at all). . . --Kirkus Reviews--Kirkus Reviews
