During this time of distancing, our connections — even if they happen via phone and Zoom — are more important than ever. For writers, the bonds we have formed with our influencer friends in the book community are not only a saving grace for our sanity but also, in a time when tours are canceled and events a thing of the past, one of the most important elements in spreading the word about our new titles.
The Tall Poppy Writers have been so lucky to form incredible bonds with many of the bloggers and bookstagrammers who have been instrumental in helping our books find their audiences. They are the queens of book recs, and we are so thrilled to be collaborating with a few of them over the next few months to recommend some of their favorite books.
I have joined forces with one of my soul sisters, Kristy Barrett, Founder (And Queen Bee!) of A Novel Bee and an Official Tall Poppy Influencer — who is nothing if not a champion for the books and the writers she loves — to recommend eight of our favorite books about sisterhood. In my novels, and especially my upcoming Under the Southern Sky, sisterhood always takes center stage. The same can certainly be said for these eight titles. Whether these women are born into the same family or have simply chosen each other for themselves, we hope they remind you of someone in your life who is always there when you need them most.
Surviving Savannah by Patti Callahan
In both its historical and contemporary storylines, Surviving Savannah isn’t just about the sinking of “The Titanic of the South” with Savannah’s elite on board. It’s a tale of love, loss, sisterhood — and how, when the women who mean the most to us are ripped away, we find a way to carry on and continue their legacy. Callahan’s exquisite page-turner begs the question: How do we survive the surviving?
