"THE UNINVITED is an affecting novel, dark in fiction and in fact. Set in 1918 against the parallel epidemics of the Spanish influenza and an equally terrifying strain of "superpatriotism," Cat Winters' latest offers resonant characters, a stunning twist, and an emotional, satisfying conclusion." -- Michelle Gable, International Bestseller of A PARIS APARTMENT

"A wonderfully atmospheric and intriguing novel. Cat Winters portrays a fascinating period in American history with clever writing and a delicious plot twist. A novel that is sure to keep readers hooked to the end." -- Hazel Gaynor, New York Times bestselling author

"compulsively readable, beautifully written and populated with characters that will hover in the air around you, long after you've set the book on your nightstand. I finished this story and wished very much I had written it." -- Wendy Webb, author of The Vanishing and The Tale of Halcyon Crane

"A mesmerizing story of life and death in one of America's darkest periods." -- Megan Shepherd, author of THE MADMAN'S DAUGHTER

"Evocative and lushly written, THE UNINVITED also features a twist I never saw coming." -- April Henry, New York Times bestselling author

"Winters' novel illustrates how the tenacity of the human spirit combines with the audacity born of necessity to triumph over even the most unthinkable challenges. Would that every chapter of history be presented in such captivating, lushly-written prose. -- Bestselling author Sophie Littlefield

"dark and romantic [...] The author effectively captures the dangers of the period, and yet Ivy finds bastions of human kindness and acceptance. Her compelling voice carries this gothic coming-of-age story, at one horrifying and tender, toward a revelatory yet hopeful conclusion." -- Publishers Weekly

"a fascinating historical fiction tale with a decidedly supernatural twist. [...] Readers who like getting immersed in a historical setting will relish Cat Winters' ability to create an almost mesmerizing atmosphere." -- Fresh Fiction

"Read this book. [...] This story is a gem with so many facets that uphold the tenets of the Gothic genre, the sensibilities of a romance, and the illuminative window to the past of a historical piece." -- USA Today, Happy Ever After blog

"an excellent ghost story: the type that is healing and moving rather than scary. Highly, highly recommended." -- Kirkus

"The Uninvited is an eerily haunting, beautifully tragic, dream-like page-turner fueled by passion, fear, and anger." -- San Francisco Book Review
