Review

2020 Women's Fiction Writers Association: Star Award, Finalist, Best Debut Novel
2020 Sarton Award Finalist: Contemporary Fiction
2020 Women's Fiction Writers Association Star Award
2020 Somerset Award Finalist: Literary and Contemporary Fiction
2020 Eric Hoffer First Horizon Award Finalist
2020 IPPY Awards Bronze Winner in Popular Fiction
2020 Eric Hoffer Award 1st Runner up in General Fiction

"A nuanced, insightful, culturally relevant investigation of one woman's personal and artistic awakening, Queen of the Owls limns the distance between artist and muse, creator and critic, concealment and exposure."
--Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times best-selling author of A Piece of the World and Orphan Train

"This is a stunner about the true cost of creativity, and about what it means to be really seen. Gorgeously written and so, so smart (and how can you resist any novel that has Georgia O'Keeffe in it?), Probst's novel is a work of art in itself."
--Caroline Leavitt, best-selling author of Pictures of You, Is This Tomorrow and Cruel Beautiful World

"Readers will root for Elizabeth--and wince in amusement at her pratfalls--as she strikes out in improbable new directions ... An entertaining, psychologically rich story of a sometimes giddy, sometimes painful awakening." ―Kirkus Reviews
"Probst plumbs the depths of Elizabeth's desperation with a delicacy that underlines the brutal truths her protagonist must face . . . A thought-provoking, introspective examination of self and sexuality."
--Booklist

"Queen of the Owls is a powerful novel about a woman's relation to her body, diving into contemporary controversies about privacy and consent. A 'must-read' for fans of Georgia O'Keeffe and any woman who struggles to find her true self hidden under the roles of sister, mother, wife, and colleague."
--Barbara Claypole White, best-selling author of The Perfect Son and The Promise Between Us

"Probst's well-written and engaging debut asks a question every woman can relate to: what would you risk to be truly seen and understood? The lush descriptions of O'Keeffe's work and life enhance the story, and help frame the enduring feminist issues at its center."
--Sonja Yoerg, best-selling author of True Places

"A gifted storyteller, Barbara Linn Probst writes with precision, empathy, intelligence, and a deep understanding of the psychology of a woman's search for self."
--Sandra Scofield, National Book Award finalist and author of The Last Draft

"Barbara Linn Probst captures the art of being a woman beautifully. Queen of the Owls is a powerful and liberating novel of self-discovery using Georgia O'Keeffe's life, art, and relationships as a guide."
--Ann Garvin, best-selling author of I Like You Just Fine When You're Not Around

"Obsession, naivety, seduction, desire, self-deception, love, and courage--all emotions subtly and powerfully revealed in this story of Elizabeth, mother, wife and intellectual, as she follows her idol, artist Georgia O'Keeffe, along a path to herself. A thought-provoking novel that readers will want to savor and share."
--Jenni Ogden, author of Nautilus Gold Award-winning A Drop in the Ocean

"An absolutely wonderful book that every woman should read!"
--Kathy L. Murphy, founder and CEO of The Pulpwood Queens, a network of 780 book clubs across the U.S. and beyond
