"Poetic, romantic, and steeped in seventeenth-century London, The Phoenix Bride is historical fiction at its best. Natasha Siegel's prose had me hypnotized, and I savored every page of this breathless, forbidden love story."--Mackenzi Lee, New York Times bestselling author of The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue

"An emotional tale of star-crossed lovers . . . will keep readers breathless."--Shelf Awareness

"Set in 17th-century London, this sumptuous romance tells the story of two star-crossed lovers drawn together under tumultuous circumstances. . . . Narrated in alternating points of view and featuring diversity along multiple axes, including religion and LGBTQIA+ identity, this lyrically written and utterly romantic novel from [Natasha] Siegel will appeal to readers of historical fiction and epic love stories."--Library Journal, starred review

"A breathtakingly beautiful novel about forbidden love in 17th-century London. . . . This book will break you open with its beautiful writing, and readers will find themselves wringing their hands, wondering how on earth David and Cecilia could ever be together. . . . A gorgeous romance about healing from trauma, making peace with grief and finding love where it doesn't seem possible. This glorious follow-up to her debut, Solomon's Crown, firmly establishes Siegel as a writer to watch."--BookPage, starred review

"A desolate widow finds new hope and forbidden romance in this poignant and commendably diverse historical. . . . Siegel sets this sweeping, emotional story apart by focusing on the experiences of people often overlooked in historical romance. The results are genuinely moving."--Publishers Weekly

"With rich prose and a plethora of delightful period details, shifting between Cecilia's and David's first-person perspectives, the story deftly explores their feelings of unlikely connection, as well as the isolation and hopelessness that can accompany loss of a loved one. . . . A well-crafted and enchanting historical love story."--Kirkus Reviews
