Product Details


“A rich, well-researched novel—it’s the story of one young woman becoming an American.”
—NPR, All Things Considered

“Well-told and engrossing . . . With compelling characters and swift pacing, ¬The Last Runaway adds a worthy new chapter to a story that has consumed generations.”
—USA Today

“Irresistible.” —O, The Oprah Magazine

“Chevalier admirably weaves historical figures and actual events into a compelling narrative.”
San Francisco Chronicle (on Remarkable Creatures)

“Evokes entire landscapes…a master of voices.”
New York Times Book Review (on Falling Angels)

“Chevalier’s signature talent lies in bringing alive the ordinary day-to-dayness of the past…lovingly evoked.”
—Elle (on Burning Bright)

“Absorbing…[Chevalier] creates a world reminiscent of a Vermeer interior: suspended in a particular moment, it transcends its time and place.”
—The New Yorker (on Girl With a Pearl Earring)

“Chevalier’s ringing prose is as radiantly efficient as well-tended silver.”
Entertainment Weekly (on Falling Angels).
