Praise for The Wedding Dress Sewing Circle

"[Jennifer] Ryan has dug into a fascinating closet of World War II history. . . . Her emphasis is on how people, especially women, manage to keep life (and love) going when so many others are intent on destroying it."Historical Novel Society

"A deliciously warm and heartrending tale . . . It's empowering to see women helping women. . . . A lovely reminder that helping others is one of the things that make life so satisfying."―Martha Hall Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of Lilac Girls

Praise for The Kitchen Front

"A charming tale that will satiate a lot of different tastes . . . This story had me so hooked, I literally couldn't put it down to cook."―NPR

"World War II-era England wasn't a happy place, but one can always find joy in cake and tea. . . . Four women, who have different reasons for competing, take solace in one another as they create recipes out of rationed ingredients. It's like re-watching old episodes of The Great British Baking Show."The Washington Post

Praise for The Spies of Shilling Lane

"Quick and delightful . . . Ryan's subtlety shines in her acknowledgment of the importance of remembering the people who pass through our lives and in her descriptions of how war and conflict can teach empathy and change people for the better."The New York Times Book Review

"Richly detailed . . . This tale swept me away!"First for Women
