Coronation Year will be published on April 4, 2023 and I’ve been fortunate enough to receive some lovely words of praise from early readers, among them some of my favorite writers. Here follows a selection of their comments, with more to come:
“Jennifer Robson’s crowning achievement! A sensitive, introspective examination of post-war Britain and the way its damaged citizens piece their lives together: a harried hotelier struggling to save her family home, a half-Indian war hero turned artist, a Jewish photographer and Holocaust survivor haunted by past losses. All three find hope and opportunity in the imminent crowning of their new queen, whose coronation will change their lives forever. Coronation Year shimmers on every page.” – Kate Quinn, New York Times and international number-one bestselling author of The Diamond Eye and The Alice Network.
“Set during the time of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, Coronation Year blends mystery with incredible research and unforgettable characters. Jennifer Robson has such an exquisite gift for bringing history to life and truly shines in this compelling read!” – Madeline Martin, New York Times and international bestselling author of The Last Bookshop in London and The Librarian Spy
“Jennifer Robson brilliantly captures the impact of historical events on the community as well as the essence of friendship, loyalty and love in her latest novel. Coronation Day is a page-turner as we follow the intriguing lives of three people brought together at the Blue Lion Hotel as they face opposition and triumph over adversity. A spark of mystery, an alluring legend, and relatable characters, Robson has penned a winning story that will seize the hearts of readers everywhere.” – Eliza Knight, USA Today bestselling author of Starring Adele Astaire
