Editorial Reviews


"Delightful Victorian romance...The novel pairs savvy Elizabeth with former urchin-cum-writer Fletcher. When Fletcher learns that Mr. King--Elizabeth's pseudonym--is cornering the penny dreadful market, he tries to unmask him. Meanwhile, Elizabeth is intrigued by the Dread Penny Society that Fletcher and his peers joined to save the vulnerable from London's underbelly and that fuels rumors among the literati.<br ><br > Despite their differences, the talented leads share a passion for social justice. Their romance is restrained and comes out through playful dialogue. Elizabeth's game outlook and willingness to help others make her a winsome schoolmarm who subverts convention. Fletcher straddles lines, displaying both the sharp instincts that he honed in his youth and his recent middle class leanings, and the combination is heartening.<br ><br > For Elizabeth, art also imitates life and life brings about unexpected change. When her role as Mr. King is made clear, it's a gratifying moment that proves her mettle and makes the thrilling twists and moody escapism of the penny dreadful worthwhile. A novel highlighting hidden lives and how love is emboldening, The Lady and the Highwayman's like-minded couple helps others find freedom." --Foreword Reviews

"Sweet, lighthearted historical pits a pair of popular writers against Victorian London's dark underbelly ... Their slowly building, chaste, period-appropriate romance delivers congenial interludes. Chapters of their respective serials are interspersed throughout, providing a subtle view into the authors' emotional lives. Dedicated readers of historical romance will enjoy many nods to the origins and attractions of their genre." -- --Publishers Weekly

"Chaste yet exciting romance as Fletcher and Elizabeth grow closer together despite their different class backgrounds. Thoroughly enjoyable chapters of their penny dreadfuls are interspersed throughout the book. Eden does not shy away from the hardships faced by the Victorian poor, but the daring escapades of the Dread Penny Society and the attraction between the two authors keep the novel from turning grim. Readers will hope for future appearances of Eden's irresistible characters."
