Maria Semple, bestelling author of Where'd You Go Bernadette'A riveting, gothic page-turner' the New York Times'Wonderful... A book one doesn't want to put down... I highly recommend' Sarah Jessica ParkerA GoodReads pick for May 2022The reclusive Sylvia Wren, one of the most important American artists of the past century, has been running from her past for sixty years. Born Iris Chapel, of the Chapel munitions dynasty, second youngest of six sisters, she grew up in a palatial Victorian 'Wedding Cake House' in New England, neglected by her distant father and troubled, haunted mother. The sisters longed to escape, but the only way out was marriage. Not long after the first Chapel sister walks down the aisle, she dies of mysterious causes, a tragedy that repeats with the second sister, leaving the rest to navigate the wreckage, with heart-wrenching consequences. The Cherry Robbers is a wonderfully atmospheric, propulsive novel about sisterhood, mortality and forging one's own path.

Wonderful ... I highly recommend ... a book one doesn't want to put down'
Hooray! Sarai Walker has done it again. With The Cherry Robbers she upends the Gothic ghost story with a fiery feminist zeal.
A twisted take on the artist's coming-of-age story, The Cherry Robbers tackles deep questions about marriage, sexuality, familial loyalty, guns and the artist's life-a witty, delicious, demented joyride.
Sarai Walker's debut novel does something few contemporary writers - whether green or seasoned - have managed to do well: Dietland is a searing feminist manifesto, a hardcore, politically-charged criticism of the unavoidable ills that plague women today. But, guess what? It's also fun.
Praise for Dietland:'If Amy Schumer turned her subversive feminist sketches into a novel, dark on the inside but coated with a glossy, palatable sheen, it would probably look a lot like Dietland - a thrilling, incendiary manifesto disguised as a beach read.'
This feminist Gothic thriller whisks readers from New Mexico in 2017 to Connecticut in 1950, straight into the bull's-eye of a firearms dynasty.
Walker creates a dazzling world filled with the scents and colors of flowers that will later become the foundation for Sylvia's subversive paintings. Just as subversive is the swirl of voices of the women at the story's center: The Chapel women may be locked away in castles and sanitariums by a series of domineering men, but their unfulfilled longings haunt these pages as powerfully as any family curse
Walker plays along with the feminist gothic form, with the idea of a family curse, and we cannot but play along, caught up in the suspense to the inevitable end
