Praise For…


“AND WHEN SHE WAS GOOD is a steady, surprising tale… Ms. Lippman’s nominal subject may be prostitution, but her book is not about a woman who takes care of clients. It’s about a woman who can take care of herself.”
-New York Times

“Shifting smoothly from Heloise’s past to her present, Lippman delivers an intense character study about a strong, complex woman whose love for her son compels her to make some desperate choices.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“ [Lippman] slowly ratchets up the tension until the final, blood-drenched showdown . . . It’s page-turner...”
-Library Journal (starred review)
