The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton: Set in 17th century Amsterdam—against the backdrop of the Calvinist Church’s oppressive grip, the gossip of the Guilds, and the overblown trading of the Dutch East India Company —this is a masterful, mystery-laden debut in the tradition of Emma Donoghue, Sarah Waters, and Sarah Dunant.
The Art of Crash Landing by Melissa DeCarlo: a poignant, darkly funny debut novel about a young woman who travels—penniless, pregnant, and homeless—to her deceased mother’s small southern hometown, and becomes embroiled in a local mystery: what forced her mother to flee that town thirty-five years previously?
