Stephanie Barron, Jane Austen mystery maven (Jane and the Barque of Frailty, Jane and the Ghosts of Netley), here turns her eye and heart to another well-loved English writer: Virginia Woolf.
The White Garden: A Novel of Virignia Woolf (Bantam) is a clever tapestry of past and present: think The Hours, but with a strong focus on the weeks between Woolf’s mysterious disappearance and the recovery of her body in the River Ouse.

Well-imagined and beautifully rendered, Barron’s nine Austen mysteries have all been bestsellers, but it’s difficult not to think this wonderful book steps things up.
