“The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton. I have given a copy of this book to everyone I know. Set in 19th century New Zealand, it tells the story of two young lovers caught up in an hypnotic intrigue of gold and greed. An astonishing work of historical fiction, beautifully written, with the power to transport the reader from the very first pages into a world and story so complex and thrilling that you will never want it to end.”
Nancy Goldstone, author of The Rival Queens: Catherine de’ Medici, Her Daughter Marguerite de Valois, and the Betrayal That Ignited a Kingdom
