Ep. 62: Fiona Davis, Author of The Lions of Fifth Avenue

Today on A Bookish Home, the podcast, I’m chatting with library fan and historical fiction author, Fiona Davis, whose new book is called The Lions of Fifth Avenue.

I loved the bookish mystery at the heart of this story and being able to step into the world of the New York Public Library during alternating time periods. Fellow bibliophiles will want to get their bookstore orders and library holds ready!


“Davis delves into the history of the New York Public Library in this delightful mystery … The characters and story are stellar, but the real star of the show is the library, which Davis evokes beautifully.”

“Fiona Davis has again produced a first-class tale … intrigue seeps through until the final pages, revealing New York in the early 1900s, the beginnings of the feminist movement and the insidious sale of stolen rare books. It’s a literary delight.”— Authorlink
