Publisher Description

The fantasy novel you've always wished Jane Austen had written

Shades of Milk and Honey is exactly what we could expect from Jane Austen if she had been a fantasy writer: Pride and Prejudice meets Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. It is an intimate portrait of a woman, Jane, and her quest for love in a world where the manipulation of glamour is considered an essential skill for a lady of quality.

Jane and her sister Melody vie for the attentions of eligible men, and while Jane's skill with glamour is remarkable, it is her sister who is fair of face. When Jane realizes that one of Melody's suitors is set on taking advantage of her sister for the sake of her dowry, she pushes her skills to the limit of what her body can withstand in order to set things right-and, in the process, accidentally wanders into a love story of her own.

Beautifully written!

What a great book! Very well imagined and beautifully written! Takes me back to all those wonderful classic books of that time period--with a twist.

Predictable fluff

Shades of Milk and Honey was contrived and predictable. The only comparison to Jane Austin were the parallels of characters in this book that were easily traceable to originals of Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice.
