A Fall of Marigolds and Only the Beautiful by Award Winning Author Susan Meissner

Autographed Books

A Fall of Marigolds — A beautiful scarf connects two women touched by tragedy in this compelling, emotional novel from the author of A Bridge Across the Ocean

“Susan Meissner knits the past and the present with the seamless skill of a master storyteller. A beautifully written, moving novel that had me gripped from the first page.” — Kate Kerrigan, New York Times bestselling author of Ellis Island

Only the Beautiful — A heartrending story about a young mother’s fight to keep her daughter, and the winds of fortune that tear them apart by the USA Today bestselling author of The Nature of Fragile Things and The Last Year of the War.

Only the Beautiful is an emotional journey of grief, hope, and second chances… Meissner pulls no punches in comparing America’s treatment of people with disabilities with the Nazis’ actions a few years later, leaving the reader with the emphatic message that everyone has a moral obligation to speak out against governments doing horrible things. This one resonates.” – Historical Novels Review
