An April 2015 "Library Reads" Pick

One of the top books being published this April that librarians across the country have chosen as a Library Reads pick is the latest by award-winning and best selling author Susanna Kearsley entitled “A Desperate Fortune”. Perhaps intentionally published in time for Autism Awareness month, the heroine of this mesmerizing story happens to be on the spectrum.

"Kearsley's decision to offer a fully developed, romantic lead with the perspective of Asperger's is a welcome and refreshing idea. Incorporating rich historical details that feel as vivid as the present enables readers to quickly lose sense of time as the author weaves threads from two eras into one dramatic tapestry."

"Kearsley is an expert at seamlessly merging contemporary and historical fiction... The colorful history and romance of the 18th century, combined with the contemporary mystery, create a tale readers will savor." - RT Book Reviews

"A grand adventure...Susanna Kearsley just keeps getting better and better!" LAUREN WILLIG, New York Times bestselling author
