About the Author

Jennifer Chiaverini is the New York Times bestselling author of thirty-five novels, including critically acclaimed historical fiction and the beloved Elm Creek Quilts series. She, her husband, and their two sons call Madison, Wisconsin, home.


"How did former first lady Mary Todd Lincoln fall from grace to incarceration at Bellevue Place?...Chiaverini builds a beliavable domestic sphere in which the women surrounding Mary--women who have also mourned the losses of husbands and children--try to puzzle out when she began to lose her sanity....An engaging glimpse of women's privilege and anguish during the Civil War era." -- Kirkus Reviews

" 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

"Chiaverini's many fans, and every historical fiction reader who enjoys strong female characters, will find much to love in this revealing WWII novel." -- Booklist on Resistance Women

"A riveting, complex tale of the courage of ordinary people." -- Kirkus Reviews on Resistance Women

"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
