Or does she? Prepare for an adventure of Gothic proportions in this stand-alone follow-up to My Lady Jane, which was called “an utter delight” (ALA Booklist, starred review), and “an uproarious historical fantasy that’s not to be missed” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Prepare to laugh and gasp and clutch your pearls.” Tahereh Mafi, New York Times bestselling author
“There is not one page of this absolutely hilarious tale that does not inspire laughter…The narrators’ asides are as amusing as the characters’ behavior, thoughts, and comments, and while readers unfamiliar with the original story will still be entertained, the details of the original become such a farce in this retelling that those who know (and love or hate) the classic romance will be delighted.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“The authors’ affection for their source material is abundantly clear in this clever, romantic farce.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Humorously blends fact with fiction and offers a gentler, more hopeful outcome for Charlotte, her siblings, and her heroine. A must-read for fans of My Lady Jane or Jane Eyre and a fun alternative for fans of paranormal romances.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“A delightfully deadpan deconstruction of a Gothic novel, with a ghost almost no one can see providing the commentary. Marvelously self-aware and almost too clever for its own good.” Booklist (starred review)
“Hand, Ashton, and Meadows offer up a fantastical, tongue-in-cheek plot that manages to both poke fun at and hold in high esteem the novel that provided the inspiration…Reader, it delighted. A fun, supernatural mashup of different literary novels that shines on its own merit.” Kirkus Reviews
