About the Author

Lucy Sanna has published poetry, short stories, and nonfiction books, which have been translated into a number of languages. Born and raised in Wisconsin, Sanna now divides her time between Madison, Wisconsin, and San Francisco, California. The Cherry Harvest is her first novel.


"Sanna has adeptly interwoven details of life and hardship for many in the U.S. during this time with the very different lives of the rich who profited off the war . . . an impassioned and spirited historical romance." -- Shelf Awareness

"At times romantic, scheming, heartbreaking, and tragic, Lucy Sanna's fiction debut takes us to an America only just receding from memory. It is a time of war, love, and passion, and in Sanna's hands it all becomes undeniably and vividly alive." -- Christian Kiefer, author of The Animals

"A beautiful novel and a reminder that war touches every family, but never in the same way. Sanna's engaging, unforgettable characters show how every action can resound in unimaginable consequences--and what starts out as an act of kindness might prove the most dangerous. Haunting." -- Amy Smith, author of All Roads Lead to Austen

"A delight to read. The world she created was so physically real and the characters so engaging that I was instantly drawn in . . . I read the book at one sitting...and highly recommend." -- Nancy Farmer, Newbery Honor and National Book Award-winning author of The House of the Scorpion

"The Cherry Harvest gripped me from the first sentence. It's a vivid, compelling, and beautifully written story, by turns lyrical and savage, as the well-drawn characters, consumed by passion, fear, hope, and hatred, move inexorably toward the unexpected climax." -- Gillian Bagwell, author of The Darling Strumpet, The September Queen, and Venus in Winter

"The Cherry Harvest is not just a novel you won't want to put down--Sanna's insightful characters and heart-stopping plot twists make it a tale that will stay with you always." -- Antoinette May, New York Times bestselling author of The Sacred Well and Pilate's Wife

"A fine novel of life during wartime." -- San Jose Mercury News
