"A seamlessly crafted tale of tragedy, resilience, and triumph, this powerful novel needs to go to the top of your list. Lisa Wingate once again gives poignant voice to the 'lost' children of American history."--Lisa Scottoline, author of Eternal and Loyalty

"Shelterwood is an instant American classic and a diamond in the crown of Lisa Wingate's canon of atmospheric and emotional novels. The story of Ollie and Nessa is a page-turner."--Adriana Trigiani, author of The Good Left Undone

"A complex and fascinating tapestry woven with threads of history, mystery, and menace that proves yet again that there is no finer storyteller at work today than Lisa Wingate."--William Kent Krueger, author of The River We Remember

"I barely put Shelterwood down as my new favorite heroine, Ranger Valerie, uncovered the chilling story of children displaced by land barons. This book has it all--two fabulous heroines, a little-known true story, and a setting to die for."--Martha Hall Kelly, author of Lilac Girls and The Golden Doves

"Wingate's best book yet! Shelterwood explores crucial societal issues against the nail-biting backdrop of early-twentieth-century Oklahoma, where the struggle for land and oil threatens lives. . . . A spellbinding and important tale."--Marie Benedict, author of The Mystery of Mrs. Christie and The Personal Librarian

"Riveting and powerful! Wingate brings to life the shocking tale of greed and little girls forced to save themselves. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I doubt I will ever forget this story."--Vanessa Miller, author of The American Queen

"Wingate's signature talent for deeply realized characters, awe-inspiring prose, and page-turning mystery has never been more manifest. This captivating story will absorb your mind and heart and won't let go."--Patti Callahan Henry, author of The Secret Book of Flora Lea

"Lisa Wingate works her signature magic in creating strong, smart, and willful children who survive at any cost. Shelterwood is as heartwarming as it is mysterious and utterly absorbing."--Sadeqa Johnson, author of The House of Eve

"Wingate's stellar latest explores a centuries-long legacy of missing child cases. . . . Wingate's insightful depiction of her young characters' vulnerability and resourcefulness enriches the intricate plotting, and her portrayal of the region's history, culture, and landscape enthralls. Wingate is at the top of her game."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
