The creative sisterhood of Little Women, the social scandal of Edith Wharton and the courtship mishaps of Jane Austen. . . . Callaway’s characters - some of them inspired by her own family ancestry - are well-developed and memorable. The reader is easily drawn into the Loftin sisters’ trials and triumphs. The Fifth Avenue Artists Society is a delightful, and at times touching, tale of Gilded Age society and creative ambition with an inspiring heroine.”

Joy Callaway’s second novel is a galvanizing, insightful read based on the founding of America’s first sorority. With a believable and winsome heroine, Callaway achieves the perfect balance between rich historical detail and themes that are modern and fresh. Smart and satisfying, Secret Sisters drives home the importance of fighting for your beliefs, widening your mindset, and finding your tribe.”
