Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

These romantic tales take place amid the manners and drama of the Victorian era. A strong collection, the stories complement each other, evoking many aspects of an era in which being “all right” meant “married.” The young women here chafe at and rebel against this concept or muddle through it while gaining a newfound understanding of their options and potential. The most compelling tales feature girls masquerading as men to achieve what they could not as women, in either their personal or professional lives. Others employ magic and fey as a way to break free from a proscribed future. The complex period language is used to uneven effect across the collection; in some pieces, an overly mannered style allows a slow simmer; while in others, the prose struggles to engage the reader. Most of the authors, however, do let their voices shine through to create compelling narratives. Older teens and adults looking for historical romance in short form will enjoy this look at love and independence in the age of restraint. Grades 9-12. --Heather Booth

“By the time readers run through them all…everyone who has enjoyed every page will immediately go back to the beginning and live the adventures and romance all over again...Good writing that offers YA readers a variety of charming tales filled with dark and light – romance and sin!”

Cornocopia of Reviews blog
“For those that love historical fiction with a bit of scandal thrown in, this is the anthology for you… I found many of the stories within this book to be fabulous reads… There are characters from across the globe, and love between all genders. If only all books could be that way!”
