Join us on September 7 from 2:00-3:30, as CFF welcomes Daniela Petrova, author of the debut novel, HER DAUGHTER’S MOTHER, just out from Putnam.
HER DAUGHTER’S MOTHER has been named “best beach read of the year” by O, the Oprah Magazine and “One of Five Thrillers to Read This Summer” by Time Magazine. CrimeReads calls it “One of summer’s most buzzed-about debuts…Petrova has written a consummate page-turner that also manages incredible layers of emotional depth. This is one of the year’s most provocative and eye-opening novels.”
Daniela Petrova’s debut novel, HER DAUGHTER’S MOTHER (G.P. Putnam’s Sons; Publication Date: June 18, 2019), is both a twist-filled domestic suspense and an exploration into the emotional and ethical complexities of advanced fertility treatments and motherhood. When a newly pregnant woman crosses the line and befriends her anonymous egg donor, she is surprised by the unlikely friendship they form—and is blindsided when her new friend disappears. As one of the last people to have seen her, she becomes a key suspect in a possible crime. But the truth is even more complicated than she could have imagined.
Daniela Petrova is a recipient of an Artist Fellowship in Writing from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and a scholarship for the Tin House Summer Workshop. Her short stories, poems and essays have been published in the New York Times, The Washington Post, Salon, and Marie Claire, among many others. Born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria, Petrova currently lives in New York City. HER DAUGHTER’S MOTHER is her first novel.
Join us in conversation with Daniela as we discuss HER MOTHER’S DAUGHTER, and what it takes to place a debut novel with a major publishing house.
