Why We Love Lost Roses

A powerful story of revolution

All the Light You Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, The Huntress by Kate Quinn, and Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly are more than stories of war: they are stories of courage, survival, and justice that are beloved by readers everywhere. In Lost Roses, her outstanding follow-up to her bestselling debut, Lilac Girls, Martha Hall Kelly tells the story of Caroline Ferriday’s mother, Eliza, against a backdrop of revolution and reinvention, love and grief that opens in 1912 and cuts between the United States, Russia, and Paris. Packed with unforgettable characters and all of the What ifs and Would Is readers love to discuss with other readers, this engaging story is perfect for book clubs, which is why we’ve made it our April 2019 Barnes & Noble Book Club selection.

From Our
Exclusive Edition
Martha Kelly on Lost Roses

“I honestly never dreamt that so many readers would come to my first novel Lilac Girls, based on the true story of a New York City socialite named Caroline Ferriday who championed the cause of seventy-four Polish Catholic women who’d been experimented on by Nazis at an all-female concentration camp. I also never imagined how the novel would come to be. It all happened because on one Mother’s Day, I drove to Caroline’s former home in Bethlehem Connecticut, now a museum, to see her famous lilac garden. And that’s when the magical connection to her and her family formed for me.”

THE B&N BOOK CLUB

What does any reader (especially a bookseller) love more than reading or recommending books?

Simple: Talking about books with another reader. Lost Roses is the fourth selection of our Barnes & Noble Book Club for 2019. At our stores across the country, readers will come together to discuss this compelling story — some bringing friends and family with them, others making new friends — as they ask, What would you have done?

Our B&N Book Club is Now Monthly!

We all had so much fun talking books together at our first three book club nights in 2018 — so much so that customers and booksellers kept asking for more, and now we’re bringing the Barnes & Noble Book Club to readers everywhere every month. That’s not our only big news: We’ll not only tell you what the next month’s selection will be at the end of every book club night, we’ll also give away one copy of that next selection at the same time.
