About the author:

Emily Gray Tedrowe is the author of two previous novels, Blue Stars and Commuters. She earned a PhD in literature from New York University and a BA from Princeton University. She has received an Illinois Arts Council award as well as fellowships from the Ragdale Foundation, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and the Sewanee Writers' Conference. A frequent book reviewer for USA Today and other publications, Tedrowe also writes essays, interviews, and short stories. She lives in Chicago, Illinois.

In The Talented Miss Farwell, Miss Rebecca Farwell has made a killing at Christie’s in New York City at the end of the 1990s, selling her extraordinary art collection for a rumored 900 percent profit. To some, the elusive Miss Farwell is a shark with outstanding business acumen. But a thousand miles from the Big Apple, in the small town of Pierson, Illinois, Miss Farwell is someone else entirely—a quiet single woman who works tirelessly as the town’s treasurer and controller, secretly “borrowing” from the town’s funds to finance her art habit. How long can the talented Miss Farwell continue to pull off her double life?
