Review: PRAISE FOR "MR. EMERSON'S WIFE"

"Amy Belding Brown has brought her back to life in a novel that glitters with intelligence and authenticity."--Geraldine Brooks, author of "March"

"In this extraordinary book, Amy Belding Brown has brought the nineteenth century to life...A soaring imaginative leap, this book combines detailed history with a page-turning illicit love story. It's a look at a rich moment in American history and a great read, a rare combination."--Susan Cheever, author of "My Name Is Bill" and "Note Found in a Bottle"

"A beautiful work...It is quite refreshing to see that ambition backed up with a quality of writing that bears up to the weight of its subject matter."--Bret Lott, author of "Jewel "and "A Song I Knew by Heart"

""Mr. Emerson's Wife" engages with intelligence and passion the mind of Lidian Emerson, and what is found are the staggering daily compromises and frustrations of an intellectual nineteenth-century woman...A robust novel that situates itself in grace and struggle in feminine consciousness among the Concord men."--Victoria Redel, author of "Loverboy"

"Where historians dare not go, Amy Belding Brown's imagination takes us...I don't know who to celebrate more--the resurrection of Lidian Emerson or Amy Belding Brown's ascent to the first ranks of historical fiction."--Wallace Kaufman, author of "Coming out of the Woods"

"Brown's writing is graceful, at times giving Lidian a poetic voice. . . . In an age when scholarly biographers meticulously document every detail in the actions and settings of their subjects, Brown has escaped to the freedom of fiction to suppose 'what might have been.'"--Ruth Johnstone Wales, "The Christian Science Monitor"

"[Brown's] writing is exceptional...Throughout the book are multiple unobtrusive reminders that this author is a poet as well as a novelist and biographer."--Ann M. Woodlief, "American Transcendental Web"
PRAISE FOR "FLIGHT OF THE SPARROW"
"A mesmerizing tale of survival and awakening...reminded me of "Caleb's Crossing.""--Donna Thorland, Author of "The Rebel Pirate"
