Praise for The House of Hawthorne

“Fascinating.”—The New York Times Book Review

“You may not have heard of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s…wife Sophia Peabody, but this reimagining of her life will have you transfixed.”—People

“The timeless questions of identity and creative self-expression facing women today are explored in this richly imagined novel of the marriage of Nathaniel and Sophia Hawthorne. Insightful and transportive.”—Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Orphan Train 

“Robuck’s sure storytelling brings accomplished artist Sophia Peabody into the light and into your heart. Luminous, vivid, enchanting.”—Lynn Cullen, bestselling author of Mrs. Poe

“Brings the brooding author and the idealistic artist brilliantly to life.”—Amy Belding Brown, author of Flight of the Sparrow 

“Erika Robuck brings the mid-19th century vividly to life. Her prose is lush but not burdened by unnecessary details. She has a real knack for capturing the dreamy voice of Sophia…it is a pleasure to see how much in love [Sophia and Nathaniel Hawthorne] were with each other.”—Historical Novel Society

“Finding and giving voice to extraordinary women in the literary world is where Robuck’s talents lie….The lovely writing and beautiful romance make for an absorbing read.”—RT Book Reviews
