"Like Mrs. Dalloway's English garden, Daughter Dalloway blooms with joy and melancholy; personal histories flower in the shadows of wars, secrets, scandals, and loves. A rich continuation of Virginia Woolf's immortal intentions, and a tender evocation of the female battle for self."-- "Juliet Grames, winner of the 2022 Ellery Queen Award and author of The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna"
"Beyond a compelling, imaginative retelling of the Virginia Woolf classic, Daughter Dalloway offers a unique take on what it means to sift through the remnants of the past. Elizabeth uncovers more than her legendary mother's fate--she uncovers her own."-- "Marie Benedict, New York Times bestselling author of The Mystery of Mrs. Christie"
"An immersive, beautifully written debut inspired by a Virginia Woolf classic. The story is told around Elizabeth and Octavia, both trying to solve a mystery of their own, and fated to find one another along the way. I felt deeply connected with both women and longed for the very satisfying ending. France braves important issues with such finesse, keeps the reader engrossed between the time periods, and most importantly, leaves readers with the most valuable lesson of all--you are enough."-- "Erin Bledsoe, author of The Forty Elephants"
"Woolf would appreciate France's novel because it, like Mrs. Dalloway, explores the same existential question: how should we live our life? [France] leavens her novel with a mystery that the reader will find satisfying."-- "Historical Novels Review"
