"An irresistible proposition for a gifted operatic soprano. The double lives of a talented young Chinese woman and her artist lover. A tenacious, globe-trotting female botanist. The legendary crown of an Empress. The devastating San Francisco earthquake of 1906 and the ensuing rampant, deadly fire. Brilliant authors Kate Quinn and Janie Chang weave these threads together into seamless, page-turning masterpiece of history and suspense -- shot through with women rising up from the margins of society to claim their own singular futures. I could not put this triumphant novel down." -- Marie Benedict, New York Times bestselling author of THE FIRST LADIES and THE MITFORD AFFAIR
"Oh my goodness, I couldn't put this book down! Heart-pounding, gasp-out-loud storytelling--THE PHOENIX CROWN is the best book I've read all year." -- Victoria Christopher Murray, New York Times bestselling author of THE FIRST LADIES and THE MITFORD AFFAIR
"When two masters of historical fiction team up, it's like 1+1=1000. I'm in awe of this impeccably researched, magnificently rendered, and breathlessly paced tale that kept me up late into the night reading, reflecting, and delving into the haunting true stories that inspired this novel. I cannot wait to recommend The Phoenix Crown to my own book club."
-- Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of The Many Daughters of Afong Moy
"[A] seamless collaboration of two terrific novelists." -- Washington Post
