During this month's EarlyWord Galley Chat the conversation turned toward Daisy Goodwin's scandalous and luxe, THE AMERICAN HEIRESS. @EarlyWord expressed some confusion about the recommendation, "Talia recommended AMERICAN HEIRESS? But, it doesn't sound like there's any gore in it!" Fortunately Stephanie Chase (@acornandnuts) was there to clarify the appeal, "American Heiress is like a delicious piece of cake." We agree.
Library Journal gave THE AMERICAN HEIRESS a starred review that says, "Top-notch writing brings to life the world of wealth on both sides of the Atlantic. This debut’s strong character development and sense of place will please fans of historical romance, including book club members."
Publishers Weekly calls the story "lush," "propulsive," and "fresh." They also caught up with Goodwin to discuss her inspirations for her magnetic characters, clashing cultures, and explosive costumes. Read the full interview here!
THE AMERICAN HEIRESS will be available 6/21/2011 from St. Martin's Press.
