About

Overview

A New York Times Book Review Summer Reading Selection

On the eve of World War I, twenty-one-year-old Georgie Hyde-Lees is introduced to the acclaimed poet W. B. Yeats in London. Although Yeats is famously eccentric and many years her senior, Georgie is drawn to him, and when he extends a cryptic invitation to a secret society, her life is forever changed. Zeppelins stalk overhead and bombs bloom against the skyline, but at night with Yeats, she escapes into an even darker world, becoming immersed in The Order, a clandestine society where ritual, magic, and the conjuring of spirits is practiced. As forces pull Yeats and Georgie closer together and then apart again, Georgie uncovers a secret that threatens to undo it all.

Reviews

Customer Reviews

“Historical fiction devotees will appreciate this sensitive character study wrapped in an atmospheric, moody rendering of WWI London.”

— Publishers Weekly

“The lens through which a story is told makes all the difference. . . . Miller deftly presents a portrait of Georgie, a young woman calibrating her place in the world, and her shifting relationship with the man she adores.”

— Booklist

“Subtle and low-key, Miller’s debut coolly appraises the poet while fully inhabiting the woman in his shadow.”

— Kirkus Reviews
