Review

Praise for The Glittering Hour:

* A "Must-Read" for PopSugar! *

* A December Recommend from Book Riot! *

"... a riveting historical epic about the choices that haunt us." - Refinery29

"An absorbing tale of love, loss, and the ties that bind... A sweeping historical saga that captures the desires and dilemmas of the heart." ― Booklist

"The Glittering Hour is an exceptional novel about choosing how to live amid powerful grief and true love. For readers looking for a tremendously entertaining, emotionally charged story, look no further. The Glittering Hour is just the ticket." ― BookPage

"This sweeping history is sure to be a tearjerker." ― Publishers Weekly

"This is a deceptively bittersweet tale, a story of loss and discovery covered in flashes of
riches and freedom that obscure its melancholy core. ...a heartbreaking but ultimately positive tone that will hit many emotions. And while it is a love story in Selina’s past that we follow and mourn, it’s the relationship between Alice and her parents that takes center stage at the end." ― Historical Novel Society

"Vivid and heartbreaking." - Prima (UK)

"Prepare to be swept away on an all-encompassing journey of love, loss and discovery." - Woman & Home (UK)

"I absolutely adored this sweeping novel" - Good Housekeeping (UK)

"... a stunning novel of love, loss and living life to the full. Beautifully written with attention detail in plot and character, this book went straight to my heart, and took me through an array of emotions. I found this evocative of the period, mesmerising in its story and an absolutely fabulous read that I didn’t want to end. A captivating and compelling read that I highly recommend." - Bookliterati.com (UK)

“An enchanting, evocative read.” – The Sun (UK)

“Emotionally fraught, evocative and redemptive, The Glittering Hour has been well worth the wait. What a superb novel - Iona Grey really is back with aplomb.” – Fiona Mitchell, author of The Maid’s Room


Praise for Letters to the Lost:

“A wonderful story.” ―Rosamunde Pilcher, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Shell Seekers

“Grey's engaging, poignant, and romantic debut treats readers to an absorbing story within a story.” ―Library Journal, *Starred Review*

“A captivating tale of love and love lost.” ―Booklist

Letters to the Lost pulsates with life, offering a vibrant love story that transcends time and the heartbreak of war. Settle in somewhere comfortable; you are in for an enthralling read.” ―Kate Alcott, New York Times bestselling author of The Dressmaker

“[A] powerful debut, one of those rare books that grabs you from the first page and doesn't let go. It's a heart-wrenching, smile-through-the-tears story of love lost and refound - you won't be able to put it down!” ―Lauren Willig, New York Times bestselling author of The English Wife and The Ashford Affair
