St. Martin's Press 10/4/2022. New hardcover. in Brand New jacket. Store pick: Isobel Gamble arrives in Salem with her husband, Edward, running from debt in Scotland. The fresh start that Isobel was hoping for becomes an introduction to the close-minded ways of 1800s Salem. When Edward unexpectedly leaves on an ocean voyage, Isobel is left on her own to navigate the cliquish social and business worlds that she must conquer in order to survive. Isobel's extraordinary needlework provides a living for her but also invites whispers of mystery from the town's residents. Woven into Isobel's story is her growing relationship with Nat Hathorne, a writer looking for publishing success. Based on Nathaniel Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter character, Hester Prynne, this novel brings to life the courage and strength women needed to make their way in a new world that was not always welcoming. Isobel's character will both impress and enchant you with her powerful belief in herself and her magical talent. -Mary Jane, store volunteer reader
