Welcome to my bookshelf. Click on a book cover to read about my latest releases The Beantown Girls and The Saturday Evening Girls Club and the upcoming The Secret Stealers. Enjoy exploring history and the stories it has to share.


The Secret Stealers is a flawlessly crafted and engrossing story of the unexpected ways in which war changes who we are. Once again, Healey gifts readers with her trademark characters: everyday women who prove themselves to be extraordinary—women so relatable, so endearing, and so brave that they jump off the page and into our hearts.

EPISODE 5: Lady Sunshine by Amy Mason Dolan

My guest for this Historical Happy Hour episode is Amy Mason Dolan. She will be joining me on June 17th at 7PM EST to discuss her latest novel, Lady Sunshine.

“Amy Mason Doan creates a whole world and mood with her exquisitely crafted novel, Lady Sunshine. It’s replete with late-’70s nostalgia, and Doan masterfully renders the lives of musicians and those who are drawn to them, no matter the price. A delicious daydream of a book.”
—Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author of 28 Summers
