Jessamyn Hope

Jessamyn Hope is the author of the novel Safekeeping— a recommended read for summer 2015 by The Boston Globe; acclaimed by The Globe and MailTablet Magazine, The Montreal Gazette, The Jerusalem Post, and Booklist; a New York Public Library Staff Pick; a current finalist for the 2016 Harold U. Ribalow Prize; a finalist for the 2016 Paterson Fiction Prize; and found at number two on BuzzFeed's "53 Books You Won't Be Able to Put Down."

Safekeeping, Jessamyn Hope’s luminous, irreverent, and ambitious first novel, shows how a single item — a medieval brooch made by a Jewish artisan for his wife — connects people across time and history. Full of romance, tragedy, betrayal, and the constant reminder that chaos is a driving force in everyone’s story, Safekeeping is a wise and memorable debut by a novelist of great talent and originality.” The Boston Globe
