"Jane Austen aficionados once again have cause to rejoice, as Barron maintains her usual high standards in this latest literary historical." (Publishers Weekly)
"The language is delicious, the characterizations layered, and the plot full of surprises. Kate Reading's narration quietly underscores the Austen-esque humor and captures the quirkiness of a wide array of characters. She shines at moving along briskly while still taking time to savor the language." (AudioFile)
"Historical fiction at its best!" (Library Journal)

I was determined not to like this author, because of my love of Jane Austin and my fear that these books could only exploit her popularity without satisfying the need of her fans for more of her. I was pleasently surprised and found myself very much enjoying the story and the writing.
