The runaway bestseller Lilac Girls introduced the real-life heroine Caroline Ferriday. This sweeping new novel, set a generation earlier and also inspired by true events, features Caroline’s mother, Eliza, and follows three equally indomitable women from St. Petersburg to Paris under the shadow of World War I.

March 3 is the launch of Lost Roses in paperback and Martha Hall Kelly has chosen to celebrate this milestone with us at the Mandell JCC.  Both Lost Roses and Lilac Girls will be available for sale and signing at the event.
