• I think Williams is writing the best historical fiction out there. It's lush with period detail but feels immediate.

    — Elin Hilderbrand

  • [Williams'] novels are packed with complex, daring, and intriguingly human women.

    — NPR.com

  • Williams’ particular gift as a writer is peeling back the pages of history to breathe life into the interior lives of women — how they lived, loved, and lost within the expectations and limitations of their time.
