Like Daphne du Maurier, this novel powerfully conjures up a place, a time and a story that are unforgettable.--Rosamund Lupton, author of SISTER
I love this story! It captivated me from the first page and I was mesmerized until the last! Elizabeth Brooks has developed such wonderful characters and I developed strong feelings about all of them. . . . And then add to that some mystery with an unexpected twist at the end! What more could you ask for? A must read!--Stephanie Crowe, Page & Palette
Hauntingly gothic . . . This quietly unsettling tale holds its secrets close, making for a powerful story of loss and longing.--Publishers Weekly
The Orphan of Salt Winds is a beautifully written, atmospheric novel--reminiscent of Jane Eyre with its wild, bleak setting and houseful of mysteries. . . . Bewitching and haunting.--Eowyn Ivey, author of THE SNOW CHILD
The Orphan of Salt Winds is an atmospheric, beautifully paced novel about sacrifice, the urge to belong, and revenge. It's full of well-drawn characters I loved to hate, and those that I didn't want to let go, even after I closed the last page.--Claire Fuller, author of SWIMMING LESSONS
Filled with unexpected twists, beautifully rendered characters, and told with great style, The Orphan of Salt Winds will seep into your soul.--Keith Donohue, author of THE STOLEN CHILD
The Orphan of Salt Winds is the perfect winter read -- evocative, gothic, and utterly transportive.--BuzzFeed
Elizabeth Brooks's writing has a quietly magical quality that conjures the atmosphere of Salt Winds effortlessly. This novel is a tenuous and thrilling unfolding of how events in Virginia's past shape her actions in the present. An excellent blend of psychological mystery with a coming-of-age story, packaged in a unique historical setting--The Orphan of Salt Winds genuinely gave me goosebumps.--Johanna Albrecht, McIntyre's Bookshop
The Orphan of Salt Winds simultaneously functions as a gothic, historical, psychological mystery and bildungsroman.--Arkansas International
