THE RACE FOR PARIS

This most ambitious novel yet by bestselling author Meg Waite Clayton was inspired by the actual “Race for Paris” and the extraordinary women who were some of the first journalists to report from the liberated city in August 1944. For the readers of historical fiction with strong female characters such as The Paris Wife and Nancy Horan’s Loving Frank, the story itself is reminiscent of the classic World War Two era film Julia.

In Clayton’s fifth novel Jane Tyler, a journalist, and her friend Liv Harper, a photographer, travel deep into the war zone with British military photographer, Fletcher Roebuck, as they join the crush of male reporters speeding toward the City of Light. Desperate to get battle stories...

THE WEDNESDAY DAUGHTERS

Meg Clayton’s eagerly awaited new novel is a compassionate, wise, and enthralling story of mothers and daughters, the best friends who become family, and the secrets and dreams passed down through generations.

It is early evening when Hope Tantry arrives at the small cottage in England’s pastoral Lake District where her mother, Ally, spent the last years of her life.

Yet Hope knows little about her mother’s time there. Traveling with Hope are her friends Julie and Anna Page—first introduced as little girls in The Wednesday Sisters, now grown women grappling with issues of a different era...

THE FOUR MS. BRADWELLS

Meg Waite Clayton’s national bestseller The Wednesday Sisters was a word-of-mouth sensation and book club favorite. In THE FOURS MS. BRADWELLS Clayton delivers an affecting page-turner that explores the secrets we keep—even from those we love most—and celebrates the enduring power of friendship.

Years before Sandra Day O’Connor was appointed to the Supreme Court—and at a time when only three women had ever served full Senate terms—Mia, Laney, Betts and Ginger were nicknamed “the Ms. Bradwells.” A reference to Bradwell v. Illinois, a landmark case in the history of gender discrimination, the nickname instantly unites the women—both inside and out of the classrooms at the University of Michigan Law School, where they first meet. Best friends ever since, the Ms. Bradwells have supported one another...

THE WEDNESDAY SISTERS

Meg Waite Clayton might have titled her novel "The Wednesday Sisters Writing Society," except that it is as much about shared lives—children and laughter, illness and eccentricity, miscarriage and divorce—as it is about shared literary dreams. THE WEDNESDAY SISTERS begins in the late 1960s and brilliantly and movingly tells the intertwined stories of five women who support one another through the best and worst of times. It may remind some readers of Marilyn French’s 1970s classic novel...
