As a tribute to this year’s International Women’s Day, I have compiled a post celebrating some sometimes overlooked women authors. Sure I have a myriad of favourite women authors, most of whom you have heard of, or at least have heard of their work. Some of these include Delia Owens who wrote “Where the Crawdads Sing“, Sharon Bolton who wrote “Little Black Lies“, Charity Norman who wrote “The Secrets of Strangers“, and many, many more.
However, with this post, I want to highlight a few of my favourite novels written by women authors who are not everyday names… but perhaps they should be.
Loved this novel by Cynthia Hilston and on the strength of that reading experience I have just purchased her newest book “Murder: it’s all in your head“.
I’ve read two of Joanne Graham‘s books to date and enjoyed them both.
I’ve read several of this Swedish author’s novels and this is my favourite novel by Karin Alvtegen.
Miriam Polli, an Italian American author, wrote a book that has stuck in my mind for several years now.
Amanda Berriman‘s debut novel was an amazing read that will tug at your heartstrings.
French novelist Marie-Sabine Roger, has written many novels but is not so well known in North America.British author Sarah Winman‘s work deserves to be more well know in my opinion. Liese O’Halloran Schwarz‘s novel was a favourite as well. I am anxious to read her latest offering “What Could be Saved“.
British author Kerensa Jennings debut novel made a real impact on me.
Have you read anything by any of these authors? Would you like to?
Are there any lesser known female writers that you would recommend?
