Editorial Reviews


“Rosalind Brackenbury knows how to grab her reader by the throat and hang on for dear life. Without Her is a smart, sexy, mysterious and utterly compelling novel” —Lee Smith, author of The Last Girls
“In Rosalind Brackenbury’s fine new novel, two long-term lovers search for a friend who has disappeared and find that death can be a kind of victory. I enjoyed and admired it.” —Alison Lurie, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of
Foreign Affairs and The Language of Houses
Without Her is a beautiful iteration of two levels of the coming of age story. Young girls advance from childhood to adulthood, then confront the more difficult passage to old age and death. Brackenbury’s pointillist evocation of Paris and Provence makes the landscape a third character in this moving and memorable drama.” —Michael Mewshaw, author of The Lost Prince
“Rosalind Brackenbury deserves major attention for her major accomplishments. She keeps turning out beautifully written, smart, absorbing novels that satisfy me in every way. One is better than the next and
Without Her, about love and friendship changing with age, is her best.” —Phyllis Rose, author of The Shelf: From LEQ to LES: Adventures in Extreme Reading
“Suspenseful yet thoughtful, and deeply, profoundly engaging, Rosalind Brackenbury’s
Without Her takes readers on a journey into betrayal and romance, art and heartbreak. From the South of France to Zurich and beyond, this is a spell-binding tale of a friendship enduring against all odds and a love affair put to the ultimate test. Without Her will hold readers hostage to the very last page.” —Diana Abu-Jaber, author of Birds of Paradise
Praise for Becoming George Sand
“This is not so much a story about having a love affair as it is a study of the nature of love itself. I was absolutely knocked out by it.” —Elizabeth Berg,
New York Times–bestselling author
“This is a beautiful, wise novel . . . A lovely book.”—Edmund White, Pen/Saul Bellow Award–winning author
“A wonderful book—filled with wisdom, poetry, and imagery so brilliant I wish I could steal it . . . This is a treasure!”—Annie Dillard, Pulitzer Prize–winning author

THE THIRD SWIMMER, based on a true story of the aftermath of World War 2, was published by Daniel & Daniel in May 2016.

In 2018 she returned with two novels with a French flavor: PARIS STILL LIFE in which Gaby, adrift in Paris after leaving her American husband, pursues a missing painting left to her by her dead father and struggles with the false and the true in both love and the art world; and THE LOST LOVE LETTERS OF HENRI FOURNIER, a three-level narrative of loss, renewed love and second chances, about the passion of the novelist Fournier and his lover, Pauline, just before the outbreak of World War I.

PARIS STILL LIFE was published in January 2018 by Lake Union; THE LOST LOVE LETTERS in July 2018.
