"The Immigrant's Wife is a vivid and haunting novel told with great precision and heart. You can't help but root for Charles and Anna, two star-crossed strivers making their way in an unforgiving world. JB Harris has written a transporting debut." —Christopher Castellani, author of Leading Men


“In Anna, Harris gives us a courageous woman who refuses to let the boundaries of privilege or ethnicity dictate her heart. Even as the pain of displacement, economic uncertainty a heart-rending tragedy test her resolve, she finds her strength through kindness, forgiveness and love. An inspiring story and a sparkling debut.” —Katherine A. Sherbrooke, author of The Hidden Life of Aster Kelly


"The Immigrant’s Wife shows a real talent for character, place, period. JB Harris moves in Edith Wharton's circle, both in talent and tone." —Dan Weaver, editor in chief of Nation Books, Faber & Faber, Inc., senior editor at Viking Penguin and McGraw-Hill,

Not all men who abandon their families are scoundrels. A story of love and perseverance set when consumption ravaged America. Anna Patrinos is deserted by her husband. What she doesn’t know is he anonymously exiled to a TB sanatorium to protect her and their unborn baby from the deadly disease and the ruinous cost of his care. Anna’s battle with ostracism, starvation and assault to keep herself and her child alive interweaves with Charles’ fight to survive and return home to his family, which is complicated by his one night of indiscretion. Reunited, Anna and Charles confront what it means to belong and whether love is enough to heal their devastated lives and start anew. Harrowing but ultimately hopeful, The Immigrant’s Wife is a compelling story of self-sacrifice, resilience and devotion.
