Madeline Martin is a New York Times, USA TODAY, and international bestselling author of historical fiction and historical romance with books that have been translated into over twenty different languages. Her newest novel, The Keeper of Hidden Books, is a powerful and poignant tour de force chronicling the efforts of Warsaw’s librarians and book-lovers to keep Poland’s culture alive during the dark days of the German Occupation.
Laura Morelli holds a Ph.D. in art history from Yale University and is an award-winning, USA Today bestselling historical novelist. Her newest novel, The Last Masterpiece, tells the story of two women in Nazi occupied Italy—a German photographer and an American stenographer—as they hunt for priceless masterpieces looted from the Florentine art collections.
Louise Hare is a London-based author with an MA in creative writing from the University of London. Her debut novel, This Lovely City, was published
in the UK to wide acclaim, and was a Between the Covers Book Club Pick on BBC Two. Her newest novel, Miss Aldridge Regrets, tells the story of Lena Aldridge, a nightclub singer on her way to Broadway aboard the RMS Queen Mary when a death on board leads her to her greatest performance—the one to save her life.
Logan Steiner is a litigator and brief-writing specialist at a boutique law firm. She graduated summa cum laude from Pomona College and cum laude from Harvard Law School. Her debut novel, After Anne, is a stunning and unexpected portrait of Lucy Maud Montgomery, creator of one of literature’s most prized heroines, whose personal demons were at odds with her most enduring legacy—the irrepressible Anne of Green Gables.
