The Personal Librarian Cover Image

Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Berkley - June 29th, 2021

A fascinating historical novel about an incredible woman ahead of her time, set in the early 1900s New York, The Personal Librarian, is stunning. Belle da Costa Greene was the personal librarian to J.P Morgan, overseeing all of his art and literary acquisitions in a time when women had very little freedom to pursue such a career. She was also hiding a secret-- she was “colored”, but her mother had decided that due to their light skin tone that they would all pass for white. This sweeping novel takes us inside her heart, dreams, and complicated relationship with Mr. Morgan, and illuminates the struggles and hopes of people of color during that era. I highly recommend The Personal Librarian for anyone who loves historical fiction, art, literature, and stories about intelligent, trailblazing women.

Such a great read!! I read it in 3 days I was so engrossed in the drama.  This is a great book to recommend to people who liked American Marriage or Little Fires Everywhere.  While it didn’t have the societal/racial depth of American Marriage, it did pose some important questions all while being very entertaining.  With themes of motherhood, race, soical media, and female friendship, this was a great read and it is NOW IN PAPERBACK!

Love, love, love Holly Goldberg Sloan and all the loss with heartwarming endings that her stories have! This story got me deep down in my core. Sila is struggling because her mom is dealing with immigration issues and can’t come back home from Turkey. But things start to turn around when she meets an unlikely friend and in turn adopts an even more unlikely animal: an elephant. This book has it all when she also then befriends her neighbor who is autistic and brings him along for the ride. They both find healing and belonging in working with Veda, the elephant, and as with all of Sloan’s books there is a truly heartwarming ending.

From the bestselling author of The Nest, this novel reads like a soap opera! Very fun, with no mention of a global pandemic! This is the "light" book you have been looking for, and it still has some depth as it ponders themes of marriage, friendship, and motherhood.

With a title like this, you must already sense the expansiveness of this novel. It is about BIG things.  Texas-sized things. It is a family saga of a wayward son returned, set on a ranch near a small town. But what sets this book apart is the weaving of Greek Mythology into the story! Very clever!

I am of the opinion that one cannot read enough stories about immigration experiences, especially when it feels like we rarely get narratives that have nothing to do with America.  The subject matter in this book is especially poignant, and the writing is absolutely beautiful!
