Description

Meredith Jaeger is the USA Today bestselling author of The Incorrigibles, a historical novel about a photographer who discovers an antique mugshot of an Irish maid, her present colliding with the forgotten history of her gentrifying San Francisco neighborhood, impelling her to fight for justice, to learn the fate of the girl in the photograph and, in turn, to decide her own. The Incorrigibles reveals the real stories of female prisoners incarcerated in San Quentin in the 1890s, and the devastating impact of Urban Renewal on low-income neighborhoods in the 1970s. Exploring the different ways in which we are imprisoned and how we can break free, The Incorrigibles is a story of women reaching across the barriers of time, the unbreakable bonds of female friendship, and the forgotten histories of those pushed to society’s margins.

Meredith Jaeger is also the author of the historical novels The Pilot’s Daughter, Boardwalk Summer and The Dressmaker’s Dowry. Born and raised in Berkeley California, and a graduate of the University of California, Santa Cruz, Meredith lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and two young children.
