Review The Guest Book
Booksellers across the country have chosen The Guest Book (Flatiron Books, May 7), the new multigenerational novel by Sarah Blake, as their number-one pick for the May Indie Next List.
The Guest Book by Sarah Blake is about the Miltons, starting in 1935, and their history is about wealth (including an island they bought off the coast of Maine), power, tragedy, and secrets.
The Guest Book was selected as an Amazon Best Book of May 2019 and nominated to the longlist for the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence; it was also a New York Times bestseller.
The novel opens in the 1930s. Kitty and Ogden Milton enjoy lives of privilege and advantage until tragedy destroys their world.
