Praise for Sprig Muslin

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

Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph

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
