Clarke, Breena


Angels Make Their Hope Here

With the same storytelling brio that distinguished the acclaimed novels RIVER, CROSS MY HEART and STAND THE STORM, Breena Clarke weaves the richly dramatic story of one woman’s triumph in the crucible of history in ANGELS MAKE THEIR HOPE HERE.

River, Cross My Heart

Five-year-old Clara Bynum is dead, drowned in the Potomac River in the shadow of a seemingly haunted rock outcropping known locally as the Three Sisters. Breena Clarke's RIVER, CROSS MY HEART , a New York Times bestseller and Oprah's Book Club selection, weighs the effect of Clara's absence on the people she has left behind.

Stand the Storm

The second novel from bestselling author Breena Clarke -whose work has drawn comparisons to Eudora Welty and Toni Morrison- STAND THE STORM follows the Coats family, freed slaves living in the “promised land” of Georgetown in Washington, D.C. that is effectively a frontier town, gritty and dangerous.
