Kate Quinn is one of the best known – and bestselling – authors writing today in the realm of historical fiction. Standouts include the Empress of Rome series, four books praised by fellow historical fiction mainstay Diana Gabaldon as “so vivid they burn into your mind’s eye and stay with you long after you turn the final page.” A master of many time periods, Quinn also wrote two novels set during the Renaissance, and a co-authored standalone that focuses on the lives of women during and in the aftermath of the French Revolution. Recently, Quinn has brought her “compelling blend of historical fiction, mystery, and women’s fiction” (Library Journal) to the two World Wars. Based on a true story, 2017’s The Alice Network focuses on a French and female-driven espionage ring in the Great War. Among other honors, actress Reese Witherspoon selected it as one of the inaugural picks for her popular Reese’s Book Club. Quinn’s follow up, The Huntress, explores the tumultuous period in Europe immediately following World War II. An instant New York Times bestseller, The Huntress “delivers intrigue worthy of a Hitchcock movie” (Wall Street Journal).
