Letters to Amelia is available for purchase through Book*hug (here!) and wherever books are sold.
“Letters to Amelia invites us to hold our heroines close and to take heart – it is gentle and joyous, full of tenderness, alive and sturdy with hope.”
-Anne Michaels, author of Fugitive Pieces and The Winter Vault
Zier-Vogel’s imagined lovers’ correspondence connects the real Earhart not only to a broken-hearted library tech but also to us and our landscape, bringing to life this singular woman’s brave, soaring spirit.
— The Toronto Star
This could be the surprise debut novel of the year
— NOW magazine
An understated literary work with a historical underpinning, Letters to Amelia celebrates singular desires and pays homage to intimacy in the face of social scrutiny.
— Foreword Reviews
An engaging story full of thoughtfully drawn characters and lively dialogue…a wonderfully readable book.”
—Anne Thériault, Quill & Quire
[A] multi-dimensional account of the life of a woman who remains not only a feminist icon but a figure of undefined mystique. I’m sure Amelia herself would be pleased.
