A School for Brides by Patrice Kindl


A School for Brides by Patrice Kindl

The eagerly awaited companion to the award-winnng Keeping the Castle The Winthrop Hopkins Female Academy of Lesser Hoo, Yorkshire, has one goal: to train its students in the feminine arts with an eye toward getting them married off. This year, there are five girls of marriageable age. There's only one problem: the school is in the middle of nowhere, and there are no men. Set in the same English town as Keeping the Castle, and featuring a few of the same characters, here's the kind of witty tribute to the classic Regency novel that could only come from the pen of Patrice Kindl!


PRAISE AND AWARDS FOR KEEPING THE CASTLE STAR Althea s tongue-in-cheek commentary . . . and her razorlike quips are abundantly entertaining, but it is the heroine s remarkable ingenuity and compassion for loved ones . . . that make her so endearing. Publishers Weekly, starred review STAR Kindl writes with sharp, effervescent, period-specific language that is so spot-on readers may find themselves adopting a British accent. This witty take on classic Regency romances is frothy fun. Booklist,
