Booklist thinks Shades of Milk and Honey is “delightful”

The August issue of Booklist reviews Shades of Milk and Honey

Take Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and add a dash of magic and you have this delightful story by Mary Kowal. This is the story of two sisters, Jane, who is more magically talented, and Melody, a stunning beauty, and their quest to find love and stability. Both girls hope to marry well despite their lack of inheritance, and are pursued by various suitors. They are quickly embroiled into the intricacies of their neighbors’ lives, and the resulting series of events is sure to entrance the reader. For those who love reading Jane Austen’s books, this will at least temporarily satisfy the craving. A touch of magic inserted into the story is enough to enhance, but not overwhelm the story line. A quick, light read, with characters that the reader will feel right at home with.

  1. I bought and downloaded it yesterday on my nook, after looking at the hardback in the Barnes & Noble store. Haven’t begun reading it yet but the sample was terrific!

  2. Mine should show up today- it’s my birthday present to myself. (Sadly, I couldn’t work in a trip to Raleigh along wirh it)
