Our Monthly Fiction Pick
The Confessions of Frannie Langton: A Novel
Sara Collins
Sara Collins’s debut novel is an unforgettable, reimagined gothic tale. If you loved Circe by Madeline Miller, you won’t want to miss this atmospheric story—with more than a few twists—of a young girl transported to 1800s London from her Caribbean home.
The Confessions of Frannie Langton is the kind of book that stays with you. One that whispers of Margaret Atwood’s Alias Grace, Frannie’s story is full of trauma, strife, and a little bit of love. This book is a triumph. I wish I could spend more time with Frannie.”—Marie C, Bookseller, B&N Home Office
