Rose goes to the big time! She's appearing, front and center, on the cover of the August 26 edition of Publishers Weekly, the major publishing industry magazine.
I wonder: would Rose herself like this kind of national publicity? She and her mother worked so hard to keep their collaboration a secret--how would they feel about the way their story is told?
Unknowable, but intriguing.
Reading note: Albert does an excellent job of bringing historical figures to life in a credible way; her novel is well paced, its characterizations are strong, and the plot is solidly constructed. Readers begin to understand Lane's personality and mentality, as well as the things that drive her.--Publishers Weekly starred review
