So Excited to Reveal the Cover for Sunflower Sisters

It has been such an emotional experience writing Sunflower Sisters, the last book of my three about Caroline Ferriday’s family. It all started with Lilac Girls back in 2000 and even then I knew I wanted to write about Caroline’s Woolsey ancestors, her great grandmother Jane Eliza and her seven daughters and son. The Civil War provides an incredible backdrop for this book and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did bringing the story to life. It comes outΒ  March 30, 2021 and I’m on pins and needles, excited to finally be able to share it with you all!

  6. Hello Martha, I discovered your novel Lilac Girls in one of my β€˜little free libraries’ in my neighbourhood a few days ago and simply cannot put it down (just a few more pages to go). I now have my name on the hold list at my local library for Lost Roses. Now I can look forward to The Sunflower Sisters next year! I am so grateful that I found Lilac Girls. Thank you for opening my eyes to the stories of these women.

  7. I’m listening to the audiobook of Lost Roses, Love this book. Writing is so vivid! I can’t wait to read or listen to the audio Sunflower girls, whichever one I can actually do !

  9. Just completed my reading of Lost Roses.
    Eagerly awaiting Sunflower Sisters.
    Thank you for making these woman come alive.

  10. I cannot wait for Sunflower Sisters arrival! The cover art is intriguing as is my realization that all the female characters in the three booksβ€˜ cover art in this series have their backs turned to us. I have a hunch what you’re going to reply, but am drawn to ask, β€œWhy?”

    1. Hi Becka! Not sure what the designers were thinking but maybe it makes it more mysterious? I’ve loved every cover they’ve done.

  11. Dear Martha,

    I have just finished The Lilac Girls and feel compelled to thank you for such a beautiful read. To discover the photographs of Caroline were the icing on the cake. I’m so excited I have more of your books to discover! In answer to your β€˜favourite literary animal’ it has to be Bodger the Bull Terrier in The Incredible Journey: the reason we now share our house with a comical anvil headed Bullie of our own – Gerald. Thank you so much for your wonderful writing, it is greatly appreciated. Warmest regards, Kerri.

    1. Wasn’t The Incredible Journey SO good? Thanks for reminding me of that–gotta find an old copy and re-read!

  12. I read Lilac Girls earlier this spring; it consumed me for a weekend! Just listened to Lost Roses and loved it. So excited to learn more about this family and dive deeper in history. You do such an amazing job telling the POWERFUL stories. My book club meeting in 2 weeks to discuss Lilac Girls; it is a long way from the genre we normally read but I really felt everyone could learn about survival and charity from reading this.

    1. So glad you enjoyed them, Carolyn! There’s a bookclub page on my website, but you’ve probably already found that. Can’t wait to share Sunflower Sisters!
