Meet Arden, Parker, and the hidden wilderness that miraculously survived Atlanta’s building boom. Once a renowned artist, Arden’s grief has turned her into a recluse in the home she risks losing. Parker excels at raising big money in Washington, D.C., but she longs for Silver Park – her safe haven – and she struggles to free herself from Buddy. His unscrupulous development plan plunges Arden and Parker into a chaotic series of conflicts involving a famous art dealer, a QVC queen, and the forest that has claimed their hearts.
Ginger Pinholster’s debut novel, City in a Forest, transports the reader through a labyrinth of privilege, racial inequity, and child sexual abuse against a backdrop of Atlanta’s natural wonders. The book explores loss and family secrets over three generations as well as the friendships, places, and moments of comedy that give us shelter.
Terry Kay, author of To Dance with the White Dog, writes, “The tease of turning another page never falters. Recommended? Absolutely.”
Jessica Handler, author of The Magnetic Girl, says that City in a Forest is “an observant, compassionate debut.”
Describing City in a Forest as a “lush, poignant, layered novel,” IndieReader writes that “Ginger Pinholster, a master of significant detail, weaves her struggling characters’ pasts, present, and futures into a breathtaking, beautiful novel.” Kirkus Reviews calls the book “a laudable story with robust female characters and skillfully woven themes of race and gender.”
