About the Books

Shakespeare, rare books, and the English countryside combine in what Library Journal calls a “gripping literary mystery that is compulsively readable until the thrilling end.”

Four writers spanning a century of history in New York City connect in this novel that Modern Mrs. Darcy calls “Nostalgic, wistful, warm, and wise . . . a thoroughly absorbing tale that explores the power of stories to irrevocably shape their readers.”

When a small-town librarian and a professional assassin team up to solve a 75-year-old Nazi mystery it makes for a novel that Publisher’s Weekly calls a “rollicking…mash-up of National Treasure and Indiana Jones—fun escapist fare.”

This new biography of the author of Alice in Wonderland examines his religious life and how his faith stood at the core of everything he did. Scholar Edward Guiliano calls it an “astonishing work” and “the definitive work on Carroll and religion.”
