Praise for Sara Donati and The Gilded Hour, a Seattle Times Best Book of 2015!

“Donati’s saga of a New York family in the 1880s, with its exquisitely realized characters, is apt to inspire repeated readings…. As she brings the sights, sounds, smells, and social mores of 1884 New York into sharp focus, Donati creates a timely tale of the past that illuminates the ongoing struggle for women’s reproductive rights and sheds light on the passionate, centuries-long fight over abortion.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Donati crafts strong female characters who draw upon the wisdom of their ancestors to transcend the slings and arrows of petty racism and sexism…. Detectives, doctors, and dastardly scoundrels abound in this fascinating historical novel.”—Kirkus

“Spellbinding…. Captivating….An enthralling love story [and] a heartwarming celebration of human kindness.”—The Seattle Times

“Powerful…gorgeous, vividly described.”—People

“Compelling….This satisfying read, rich in interpersonal relationships of many kinds, is part romance, part mystery, and part serial-killer thriller.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Each time you open a book, you hope to discover a story that will make your spirit of adventure and romance sing. This book delivers on that promise.”—Amanda Quick, New York Times bestselling author

“Lushly written…Exemplary historical fiction, boasting a heroine with a real and tangible presence.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Hugely satisfying.”—The Orlando Sentinel

“Epic in scope, emotionally intense…an enrapturing, grand adventure.”—BookPage

“From page one, the action is nonstop. The more you read, the better it gets.”—Tulsa World

“An elegant, eloquent word journey…The author has [a] gift for capturing the history and the lives of the people of that time and place.”—The Tampa Tribune

“A powerfully good read.”—Toronto Sun
