Editorial Reviews

Review

“Fascinating, immersive and twisty—twists not only of plot, but of character and time. I love a novel that deals with codes and ciphers, and the other ways in which people keep their secrets.” (Diana Gabaldon, New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander series )

“Within a few paragraphs, you realize you are in the hands of a master storyteller: Kearsley’s novels are accessible but challenging, narratively propulsive but thoughtful. […]This is smart historical fiction which isn’t afraid to assume the best of its readers.”  (Toronto Star)

A Desperate Fortune educates as it entertains, and manages to be wonderfully romantic at the same time.”  (Globe and Mail)

“Her prose is beautifully crafted and evocative of character, time and place.” (Vancouver Sun)

“Susanna Kearsley is a nothing less than a magician weaving together the past and the present in yet another marvelous, genre bending, romantic, mysterious, and utterly unputdownable novel. You’ll be captivated by the history, the secrets, the memorable heroines, and one of the cutest dogs to show up on the pages in a long time. Kearsley raises the bar book to book, and this is one of her most ambitious and successful ever. Bravo!” (M.J. Rose, New York Times bestselling author of Seduction )

“In A Desperate Fortune, Susanna Kearsley has conjured a story that will stay with you long after you put it down. Her deft touch with historical intrigue is matched only by her delivery of a contemporary heroine who is as unique as she is memorable.”  (Deanna Raybourn, New York Time bestselling author of The Dark Enquiry )

“A new Susanna Kearsley novel is always a cause for rejoicing—and for turning off the ringer on the phone and canceling all appointments.”  (Lauren Willig, New York Times bestselling author of the Pink Carnation series )

“Gorgeously romantic! One of the best books I’ve read this year!” (Kate Forsyth, author of Bitter Greens )
