"Prescott crafts a cloak-and-dagger story of passion, espionage, and propaganda."
—The Wall Street Journal

"A page-turner that is at once a spy thriller, historical fiction and heartfelt romance...A thumping good story."
—The Columbus Dispatch

"Through lucid images and vibrant storytelling, Prescott creates an edgy postfeminist vision of the Cold War, encompassing Sputnik to glasnost, typing pool to gulag, for a smart, lively page-turner. This debut shines as spy story, publication thriller, and historical romance with a twist."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A whirlwind of storytelling. In Prescott’s supremely talented hands, the result is no less than endlessly fascinating, often deliciously fun as well as heartbreaking.
The Secrets We Kept
 is a dazzling, beguiling debut."
—BookPage (starred review)

"Delightful... An intriguing and little-known chapter of literary history is brought to life with brio."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Epic in scope, deliciously meaty, and utterly convincing.”
—Ben Fountain, author of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk
