Colt, one of four brothers, tells great family stories; in between, he tells the stories of famous brothers such as the Booths, the Marx brothers, and many others (who knew there were so many?) Glimpses into many lives, engagingly written.
Paul and Louisa, twenty years apart in age, meet and sparks fly. Paul's story moves forward from the recent past, Louisa's from twenty years ago. Atmospheric, a bit gothic, original.

In 1968, the train carrying Robert F. Kennedy’s body traveled from New York to Washington D.C. This debut novel imagines several lives, from among the thousands who gathered along the tracks, and how this national tragedy affected them.
Boston on the brink of revolution provides the setting for the story of Abigail, one of three children of the headmaster of the Boston Latin School. Her father is loyal to the Crown; his children feel differently. Abigail is increasingly torn between family loyalty and belief in independence.
