Caroline Leavitt was the first person -- outside of family, agent, editor -- to read and weigh in on Harriet Wolf's 7th Book of Wonders. I was holding my breath the entire time it was in her hands. I'm so grateful for her generous blurb. Here it is: 

"Dazzling and ambitious, Baggott’s gorgeously written new novel explores the 'miracles born out of desperation' of three generations of women, all set against an astounding sweep of 20th Century history. A mesmerizing tale of a star-crossed love, and of the dark secrets of a fracturing family, the book is also a profound meditation about stories: how they create and trap us, how they protect us, and how, even amidst great tragedy, they can sometimes make us bloom. So full of wonders, it leaves you haunted, amazed, and like every great read, irrevocably changed.”
-- Caroline Leavitt, New York Times Bestselling author of Is This Tomorrow and Pictures of You
