"A chemistry-fueled debut with a bit of a ghost story, great for readers of gothic romance." - BOOKLIST
"Biller mirrors Wharton's genius for revealing the emotional gold lying beneath the Gilded Age, which motivates the novel's massive romantic turmoil." - BOOKPAGE
"A ghost-hunting adventure and sweeping romance in equal parts, and peppered with moments of breath-holding tension, it amazes me that this Gilded Age gem of a story is a debut effort. It's a moving, evocative, beautifully told and, at times, chilling read, and even when I desperately wanted to speed ahead to find out what happens in the end, I made myself savour every exquisite last word of it." - NATASHA IS A BOOK JUNKIE
"Biller's complex and intriguing debut, set in 1875 New York City...is part romance, part ghost story, and part period piece with just enough modern sentiment on the topics of feminism, mental illness, and abuse." - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"Utterly irresistible. With engaging, original characters and dialogue as crisp as a new apple, Diana Biller's debut will have you rooting for Alva and Sam through every spooky twist." - Deanna Raybourn, New York Times bestselling author of the Veronica Speedwell series
"Take a Joanna Shupe Gilded Age romance, stir in a Simone St. James ghost story, add a pinch of Julia Quinn banter, and, voila! Sheer fun with a satisfying emotional conclusion." - Lauren Willig, New York Times bestselling author of The English Wife
"Get ready to devour Diana Biller's magnificent debut novel in one sitting. The Widow of Rose House boasts memorable and vibrant characters, a delicious romance, great period detail, and a hint of the supernatural. Alva and Sam spring off the page and to life, so that I now feel as though they are friends of mine. This novel is a treat not to be missed!" - Alyssa Palombo, author of The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel
