Review quote

A writer of great wit and style ... I've read her books to ragged shreds -- Kate Fenton * Daily Telegraph * My favourite historical novelist - stylish, romantic, sharp, and witty. Her sense of period is superb, her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing. I owe her many happy hours -- Margaret Drabble Sparkling * The Independent *
