Willa & Hesper
Willa & Hesper is a novel about two young women who fall in love, fall apart, and unwittingly take the same path to mend their broken hearts, seeking answers in their ancestral lands of Tbilisi, Georgia and at the war sites of Germany. It deals with queerness, familial connections, and coming of age in uncertain times. An excerpt from Willa & Hesper was published in Cosmonauts Avenue here. The novel is upcoming from Grand Central Publishing in February 2019. It is currently available for pre-order at Amazon and able to add to your Goodreads shelf.
Kirkus Reviews says of Willa & Hesper: “… [A] deep and intimate portrait of two queer women in their mid-20s who come of age in New York while navigating—or refusing to navigate—their relationships to privilege, family, identity, and faith…. [A] moving glimpse into 21st-century queer womanhood.”
