Reviews

"Ms. Goodwin...writes deliciously." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times "A propulsive story of love, manners, culture clash, and store-bought class from a time long past that proves altogether fresh." --Publishers Weekly "Top-notch writing....will please fans of historical romance, including book club members." --Library Journal (starred review) "[An] exceptionally thoughtful and stunning historical novel that will leave you reeling and astonished...and give you the urge to re-read it the instant the last page is turned." --BookReporter.com "Smart, emotional, entertaining writing....a delicious tale that captivates." --RT Book Reviews "Deliciously classy. A story that gallops along, full of exquisite period detail." --Kate Mosse, New York Times bestselling author of Labyrinth "Sparkling and thoroughly engaging...a highly enjoyable and intelligent read." --The Sunday Times (U.K.) "I was seduced by this book, rather as Cora was seduced by her duke: with great skill and confidence. Intriguing, atmospheric, and extremely stylish." --Penny Vincenzi, author of The Best of Times "A wonderful, guilty pleasure of a read. The detailing is beautiful...and the relief of reading a novel that puts enjoyment first so rare and gratifying that I am ready for a sequel." --Amanda Foreman, New York Times bestselling author of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire and A World on Fire

An American debutant of 1893 who has everything money can buy lands an impoverished English lord. Sadly, the gilt of a fairy tale wedding wears off quickly for Cora Cash in this modern nod to Edith Wharton. (LJ 4/1/11) (c) Copyright 2011.
