Editorial Reviews

Review

'Reay's exquisite phrasing will resonate with readers and provide much fodder for pondering. . . this is a beautifully written novel and one to be savored and enjoyed.' (RT Book Reviews, 4 stars)

and ldquo;Reay handles. . . scenes with tenderness and a light touch, allowing the drama to come as much from internal conflict as external, rom-comand ndash;type misunderstandings. . . Thoughtful escapism.and rdquo; (Kirkus)

Unlike many books written in homage to Austen, this is not a modern retelling of any of her stories, but rather a romp among contemporary Austen fanatics. Readers eager for anything Austen-related will enjoy this clean romance that explores the concept of escapism and what it may reveal about our real lives.' (Publishers Weekly)

About the Author

Katherine Reay has enjoyed a life-long affair with the works of Jane Austen and her contemporaries -- who provide constant inspiration both for writing and for life. Katherine’s first novel, Dear Mr. Knightley, was a 2014 Christy Award Finalist and winner of the 2014 INSPY Award for Best Debut as well as Carol Awards for both Best Debut and Best Contemporary. She is also the writer behind Lizzy & Jane and the The Bronte Plot – all contemporary stories with a bit of "classics" flair. Katherine holds a BA and MS from Northwestern University and is a wife, mother, runner, former marketer, avid chocolate consumer and, randomly, a tae kwon do black belt. After living all across the country and a few stops in Europe, Katherine and her family recently moved back to Chicago.
