The Book of V.
Anna Solomon (The Little Bride; Leaving Lucy Pear) offers a scalding, gripping story of three intertwined lives in The Book of V. The biblical Queen Esther, a 1970s Rhode Island senator's wife and a former academic stay-at-home mom in 2000s Brooklyn have more in common than one might think. Holt editor-in-chief Serena Jones comments on "how similar--though they are actually separated by centuries--these characters' stories feel, and how they converge and clash over the same themes. Agent Julie Barer observed how women's lives have--and really more profoundly, have not--changed since biblical times." Solomon's storytelling is seamless and deeply engaging; readers will be living with Esther, Vee and Lily long after closing these pages. --Julia Kastner
