Reviews

  • A fabulous story and Rubenhold tells it beautifully

    Daily Telegraph
  • Hallie Rubenhold is in a league of her own. She keeps you glued to the very last page when, exhausted, exasperated and elated, you can at last put the book down and get yourself some sleep.... Nothing else in the genre is close to being this good

    Literary Review
  • Deliciously lurid

    Sunday Times
  • Hallie Rubenhold's account of the elopement is gripping but this is far more than an 18th-century bodice-ripper. Rubenhold combines narrative skill with historical expertise, and she traces the knife-edge that women walked between social success and public disgrace with subtlety and assurance

    Spectator
  • A well-researched account... Highly diverting tale

    Caroline Miller, Daily Telegraph
