The House Girl

Editorial reviews

The House Girl

Even with the quibbles, I highly recommend this novel to all readers: literary fiction snobs, consume-them-by-the-dozen mystery fans, or people somewhere in between. Tara Conklin can write, and this will not be the last time we hear her name.

If only Josephine’s stirring tale had been emancipated from the story of her modern-day defender, “The House Girl” might have run free.
