Praise for Madam:

One of "75 Debuts to Discover in 2021"―Goodreads
One of the "Best Debuts of 2021"Parade
One of the "Best New Mystery Thriller Books May 2021"PopSugar
One of the "Escapist Beach Reads"
Brit+Co
One of the "Books to Binge"―SheKnows.com
One of the "Books to Read Based on Your Book of the Month Club Favorite"―Women.Com

"Haunting, feminist, and deliciously dark."
––Entertainment Weekly

“Suspenseful...a gothic tale powered by bold heroines who refuse to submit.”
―Booklist

“A deliciously gothic take on patriarchy, class and the purpose of education...a haunting, atmospheric novel about agency, power and the things people do to keep both.”
―Shelf Awareness

"Wynne’s glorious gothic carries the same feminist power and inspiring characters as Circe did."
––Women.com

“Good fun if you like your classics with a twist of creepy.”
––The Seattle Times

"Imagine if Donna Tartt and Margaret Atwood got together to write a creepy, suspenseful novel about a school for young women in the Scottish Highlands. The result is Madam, a book I couldn't for the life of me put down. Brooding and unsettling, Wynne paints a gorgeous picture that only serves to camouflage the dark secrets she's hidden within."
Chandler Baker, New York Times bestselling author of Whisper Network

Rebecca meets The Secret History: gloriously dark, gloriously gothic.
―Sara Collins, author of The Confessions of Frannie Langton

The simmering menace and mystery kept me absolutely gripped. It gave me the same feeling as when I read The Secret History and put me in mind of The Furies. I loved the clever interweaving stories of the classical women of ancient myth and history with the tantalizing reveal of the horrifying truth behind the impressive facade of the grand boarding school. This was a smoldering slow burn of a novel that I could not put down.”
―Jennifer Saint, author of Ariadne

"Strange, dark, and utterly consuming... I loved it."
Katie Lowe, author of The Furies

"Chilling, eerie and very clever. I devoured it."
Polly Crosby, author of The Illustrated Child

"Spine-chillingly addictive, I found myself swept, hand in hand with the delightful Rose, into an unfolding nightmare. Phoebe Wynne is a talented storyteller, and I was reminded of Margaret Atwood, Daphne Du Maurier, and Charlotte Brönte’s Jane Eyre, but with a modern twist. Drawing the classical tragedies into the story added to its richness and the inequitable treatment of women across the centuries, from the antiquities to the present day, echoes through its pages. I was immersed in the bleak landscape and terrifying atmosphere of Caldonbrae Hall from beginning to end. A wonderful, beautifully written novel––I truly loved this book."
––Louise Fein, author of Daughter of the Reich
