Fallen Beauty cover final

 

My novel, FALLEN BEAUTY, releases on March 4th (NAL/Penguin USA) and I would like to cordially invite you to my launch party at Barnes & Noble in Annapolis, MD on Friday, March 7th at 7 PM. I will post details on my book tour stops as soon as they are finalized. For more information, visit my website or my Facebook Author Page.

I am also thrilled to share my first review from Booklist:

“In her fourth novel, Robuck weaves together two distinct narratives—the harrowing account of small-town seamstress Laura Kelley and the fiery escapades of famed poetess Edna St. Vincent Millay, where Robuck’s own voice comes most alive. The story begins amid the backdrop of 1928 New York with Laura, her lover, and the Ziegfeld Follies. Beguiled by the glamour and costume of Broadway and the passionate pangs of first love, Laura takes a chance that forever changes her life. Simultaneously, “Vincie,” restless from the frivolity and unreciprocated romance that accompany her notoriety, searches high and low for her next great muse. Two women on the edge—Laura both the core of town gossip as well as its drudging outcast; Vincie the detached inhabitant of the infamous Steepletop—are inevitably brought together by their artistic loves: Laura’s for costume design; Vincie’s for poetry. Through love and letdown, inspiration and hardship, and sisterhood and rivalry, both Laura and Vincie come to know the blazing beauty that sometimes sparks from even the greatest of mistakes.”— Briana Shemroske

Happy New Year!!
