She is the author of We Have Raised All of You: Motherhood in the South, 1750-1835, and the novels The Story of Land and Sea and Free Men.

"Only Katy Simpson Smith could have written a novel of such elegance, emotional power, and grace.  The Everlastng, a quadruple love story spanning two millenia, is no less than the story of love itself - its frustrations and thrills, its blunders and transcdent glories.  Meraviglioso."  - Nathaniel Rich
