From the acclaimed bestselling author of The Birth House and The Virgin Cure comes a dark and riveting historical novel inspired by the cult and craft of Manhattan’s 19th-century mediums
New York, 1880: Every self-respecting socialite knows these women’s names. Eleanor St. Clair, proprietress of an apothecary and tearoom; Adelaide Thom, an intuitive beauty; and Beatrice Dunn, youngest of the three, an impulsive flirt who wields extraordinary power over men. From Union Square to Central Park, their séances are the toast of the town—“witchcraft” is all the rage these days among Manhattan society. But when seventeen-year-old Beatrice doesn’t appear for breakfast, suddenly help is nowhere to be found.
Though Isabelle is unconcerned, Adelaide fears a more sinister fate has befallen Beatrice. Her only lead is dream interpreter Peninah Katz, who was last seen holding Beatrice’s prized Maltese terrier. Perhaps Adelaide underestimated Peninah’s gifts. Perhaps the woman is more powerful than she knows. For magic is alive and well in the city—but so is evil.
Blurring the lines between waking and dreaming, magic and ruse, sanity and madness, The Witches of New York is a mesmerizing, atmospheric novel of powerful forces—both supernatural and human.

In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is meticulously planned—from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principal is playing by the rules.
Enter Mia Warren- an enigmatic artist and single mother- who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the alluring mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past, and a disregard for the rules that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.
When the Richardsons’ friends attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town and puts Mia and Mrs. Richardson on opposing sides. Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Mrs. Richardson becomes determined to uncover the secrets in Mia’s past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs to her own family—and Mia’s.
Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of long-held secrets and the ferocious pull of motherhood—and the danger of believing that planning and following the rules can avert disaster, or heartbreak.
