Praise for Friday's Child

“My favourite historical novelist -- stylish, romantic, sharp, and witty. Her sense of period is superb, her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing. I owe her many happy hours.”

Margaret Drabble

“Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to.”

Katie Fforde

“A writer of great wit and style ... I've read her books to ragged shreds.”

“Sparkling.”
