Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Althea’s tongue-in-cheek commentary regarding the selection of a suitor and her razorlike quips are abundantly entertaining, but it is the heroine’s remarkable ingenuity and compassion for loved ones—including her widowed mother, younger brother, and an artist friend, Miss Vincy—that make her so endearing.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“This witty take on classic Regency romances is frothy fun for YA Anglophiles.” Booklist (starred review)
“The dilapidated castle setting, the Crawleys’ desperate circumstances, Althea's amusingly wicked stepsisters, and a touch of romance all bring this archly humorous story to vivid life. A treat for both fans of Austen and newcomers alike.” School Library Journal
“A romp of a Regency romance told through the discerning voice of a witty teenage beauty whose family needs to her to marry for money…Kindl respects the conventions of the genre while also gently mocking it…While the happy ending comes as no surprise, the path to it is funny as well as satisfying, with many nods to Jane Austen along the way.” Kirkus Reviews
