Lauren’s new novel, THE GRIMOIRE OF KENSINGTON MARKET is now available in Canada, and will soon be available in the US.

Lauren’s novel, AGAINST A DARKENING SKY, was published in early 2015 and lauded by Pulitzer-Prize winning author Robert Olen Butler, who said: “Brilliantly achieves the ideal for a historical novel: period and milieu are utterly inextricable from character and theme. Together they illuminate timeless and universal truths of the human condition. Seventh-century England is fascinating. Wilona is achingly real. Her quest for an identity and a place in the world are richly resonant. Davis is a remarkable writer.”

THE EMPTY ROOM has been named as one of the National Post’s “Favourite Books of 2013”, Amazon’s “Best Books of 2013: Top Editors’ Picks” (#22)  AND “Best of 2013: Canadian Fiction and Literature” (#12) as well as one of the “Critics Picks” from Halifax’s THE COAST.

THE EMPTY ROOM has been on the Amazon.ca Top 100 list for over a month, and comes in at #3 in the Winnipeg Free Press — http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/breakingnews/Winnipeg-Bestsellers-Sept-29-226342531.html
