I'm grateful to Jeannine for visiting and leaving a comment on the Instagram post - I didn't know that the latest edition of the Historical Novels Review is out, and I have an article in it.
If you are a subscriber to the HNR you can read Lady of the House, my interview with Erika Robuck on her new novel The House of Hawthorne. The book tells the story of Nathaniel Hawthorne and his family from the 1830s to the 1860s but in the words of his wife Sophia. Erika drew heavily on Sophia's journals and letters to create this portrait and in doing so she became "enamored by her enthusiasm, her stubborn optimism, and her almost childlike view of the world. It was a challenge to write in her voice, and I hope I rose to the occasion.” I think Erika did.
