The Twelve Rooms of the Nile
“The meeting in 1850 of Florence Nightingale and Gustave Flaubert in Egypt, an unlikely but immensely satisfying confluence, is deftly imagined in this brilliant book. The louche Flaubert and the sober Miss Nightingale are fitting representations of ourselves as life’s travelers--alternately lazy and alert, sensuous and restrained, complacent and curious.”
- Susanna Moore,
author of The Big Girls
Stalking the Florida Panther
"In this fine first book the eternal themes of love, loss, unrequital, and forgiveness come together with the characters to form a remarkably unified whole."
