Review:

"You don't just read Belle Cora. You live it." --Kate Alcott, author of The Dressmaker

"Memorable at every turn and set against the backdrop of a nineteenth century America that was, like the novel's protagonist, many different things all at once. --Edward Rutherfurd, author of Paris

"An enthralling historical drama . . . told with sympathy, feeling, humor, and accuracy. Phillip Margulies is a superb writer." --Kevin Baker, author of The Big Crowd

"As exquisitely seductive as its enigmatic heroine. . . . Will captivate readers from start to finish." --BookPage

"A rollicking novel that tracks an American Moll Flanders on her roller-coaster ride from respectability into quite profitable sin and back again." --The San Francisco Chronicle

"Gripping, sweeping, and tragic, Belle Cora is the story of an extraordinary woman making her way through an extraordinary time. . . . A character I won't soon forget. " --Anton DiSclafani, author of The Yonahlossee Riding Camp For Girls

"Not only this year's best read, but last year's as well. In a can't-put-it-down historical epic filled with suspense, romance, keen wit, adventure and scandal." --Bookreporter

"Bighearted. . . . Belle belongs in the ranks of literary heroines strong enough to survive illness, heartbreak, financial ruin, scandal and their own worst impulses, and her quintessentially American story makes her a memorable character." --The Columbus Dispatch

"The past is a foreign country. If, like me, you long to visit nineteenth-century New York and San Francisco, I can't imagine a better time-travel substitute than Belle Cora. This is a splendid feast of a novel." --Kurt Andersen, author of Heyday

"Margulies strikes gold. . . . Belle's remarkable story mirrors that of her young country, on the verge of civil war, and her sharp, engaging voice brings her tale to vivid life." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Hard to put down." --The New York Journal of Books

"A story to lose yourself in, by turns thrilling, witty and poignant. Phillip Margulies has given us a luminous portrayal of an unforgettable woman. You will be utterly seduced." --Margaret Leroy, author of The Soldier's Wife

"A debut novel of great scope and top-level excitement." --The Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

"Enthralling. . . . Above all else, it tells a great story." --Bookriot

"A story that will captivate historical fiction fans as they follow her exploits during a turbulent era." --Library Journal

"Phillip Margulies has taken the scant known facts about Belle and created a magnificent heroine. . . . Utterly compelling. . . . A memorable and outstanding work on many levels." --Historical Novel Society
