Praise

“Althea’s tongue-in-cheek commentary…and her razorlike quips are abundantly entertaining, but it is the heroine’s remarkable ingenuity and compassion for loved ones…that make her so endearing.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Kindl writes with sharp, effervescent, period-specific language that is so spot-on readers may find themselves adopting a British accent. This witty take on classic Regency romances is frothy fun.”—Booklist, starred review
 
This droll tale set in 19th-century England will earn smiles of recognition from those familiar with Pride and Prejudice…archly humorous.”—School Library Journal, starred review
 
“[A] clever take on Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’”—The Boston Globe
 
“A romp of a Regency romance . . . funny as well as satisfying.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Fans of costume dramas and novels of manners will recognize touches of other influences (Downton Abbey, for instance, and even Miss Manners) as well as clear Austen homages…a very satisfying story.”—BCCB
