Fertile Ground is an ambitious novel set in the first months of WW II in a small town
in upstate New York and North Dakota. It centers on a German immigrant family and the
mystery of whether the husband is a Nazi sympathizer. The novel is dramatically suspenseful,
its ethical issues complex and provocative. It works as a riveting mystery novel as well as a
thoughtful and perceptive exploration of loyalty and betrayal.”

Judy Slater, author of The Baby Can Sing and other Stories- selected by Stuart Dybek
as the 1998 Winner of the Mary McCarthy Prize in Short Fiction

"Filled with drama, suspense, vivid scenes and larger-than-life characters, City of Ladies
fast becomes impossible to put down. Author Sarah Kennedy is clearly as gifted as her
main character, almost supernaturally at home in the 16th century as she combines the
striking vocabulary of the time with her own own poetic talents to create a rich and
original tapestry of language. Such writing! Sarah Kennedy brings a lost world blazingly to life.”

of the ‘Emperor’ Augustus. Told in crisp sparse prose from the viewpoint

follows his adventures in the wake of the battle of Actium in 31BC where
the famed couple, Anthony and Cleopatra suffered the catastrophic defeat
which changed the political landscape of Rome forever..."

The nineteenth century looms just a few years away, bringing with it the belief in progress and a new world.
But for Josiah Fuller, William Corvin, and the Rider in the Appalachian backwoods and small towns,
there is nothing but a world where bloodshed is paid for in blood, and violence
is the ultimate law of the land.
