YES! I can finally spill the news: my next book after THE ALICE NETWORK! Sale announced:
“Forthcoming THE ALICE NETWORK author Kate Quinn’s DARKROOM, taking place post WWII, in which a battle-haunted English journalist and a Russian female bomber pilot from the real-life Night Witch squadron join forces to track the Huntress, a Nazi war criminal gone to ground in America, even as a budding teenage photographer in Boston begins to suspect her demure new stepmother is hiding a very dangerous past.”
Release date still up in the air, but I am soooo excited for this book!
Hurrah! Finally I can share the awesome cover for my upcoming THE ALICE NETWORK. I love everything about this cover and have been dying to show it to the world.
And not only is the cover out, but the pre-order page is up on Amazon. This book will be officially releasing on June 6, 2017, and you can pre-order it here!
“The Alice Network, which hinges on the unsung valor of female espionage agents in the Great War, perfectly balances a propulsive plot, faultlessly observed period detail, and a cast of characters so vividly drawn that I half expected to blink and see them standing in front of me. This is historical fiction at its best–thrilling, affecting, revelatory.”
–Jennifer Robson, international bestselling author of Moonlight Over Paris
“Both funny and heartbreaking, this epic journey of two courageous women is an unforgettable tale of little-known wartime glory and sacrifice. Quinn knocks it out of the park with this spectacular book!”
— Stephanie Dray, New York Times bestselling author of America’s First Daughter
“A ring of daring female spies known as the Alice Network left a legacy of blood and betrayal. Two women suffering the losses of two different wars must join forces, one to find her voice and her redemption, the other to face her fears and her oldest enemy. Kate Quinn strums the chords of every human emotion with two storylines that race over continents and through decades to converge in one explosive ending.”
–Marci Jefferson, author of The Girl on the Golden Coin
For more than a year now, I’ve been working on a new book. Something very new, very different, and until now, very hush-hush. Until now I’ve kept the details under wraps–but as of today, the announcement is official. My new project will launch in summer 2017 at Morrow, with my fabulous new editor Amanda Bergeron at the helm.
Bestselling author of “Mistress of Rome,” Kate Quinn’s THE ALICE NETWORK, a novel taking place in 1915 and 1947, in which an unmarried and pregnant American launches a desperate search for a beloved cousin who vanished in Nazi-occupied France, and finds her only ally in a chain-smoking, battle-scarred old woman who belonged to the real life network of female spies led by Louise de Bettignies during the First World War and who remains haunted by a thirty year old betrayal.
This book was a departure for me, but I loved every minute of it. I loved the 20th century setting, I loved the intermeshing dual timelines, and above all I loved the real-life female spies whose story is so fascinating it begged to be told–google Louise de Bettignies and see for yourself!
I loved writing THE ALICE NETWORK, and I hope you love reading it next summer!
