Over twenty wonderful novels she’s proven time and time again that her intelligent writing, emotional complexity and unforgettable storytelling resonate incredibly powerfully with readers worldwide. She’s one of the jewels of the HarperFiction list, and we’re all incredibly proud to continue our publishing relationship.”
