Perfidy & Perfection
Allan has written a lively tale of a female author in Regency times, when it was supposedly not quite the thing for a lady to write a novel. Sophy has very little experience of life but her first novel is a success. Now she has to experience something new to write about, and that something is a rather handsome gentleman in the form of Lord Hart. Clearly the gentleman isn’t going to be too pleased when he discovers that he is the subject of a novel – and when he uncovers the identity of its author. Sophy has the added problem of whether she should give up her writing to become a wife. High jinks in Middleton!
A simple tale told in a delightful manner that carries the reader to the end. I wasn’t sure the tributes to Jane Austen were necessary, because the author has her own style. However, this is well worth reading. An author to look out for in the future.
