Janice Hadlow’s debut novel THE OTHER BENNET SISTER has received 4 starred reviews!
“Hadlow traces that progression with sensitivity, emotional clarity, and a quiet edge of social criticism Austen would have relished.Entertaining and thoroughly engrossing.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“The writing is dense, but captures the esprit de Austen, immersing the reader in Mary’s internal world as she keenly (though, at first, awkwardly) observes those around her, and the result is a page-turning coming-of-age story of an overlooked woman slowly accepting her zest for life.”–Booklist, starred review
“Readers with fond but not necessarily exhaustive memories of Pride and Prejudice will love this story, as will historical fiction readers looking for intelligent heroines with agency and heart who belong to their time and place without quite fitting in.”–Library Journal, starred review
“Equal to the best Austen spin-offs, including Jo Baker’s LONGBOURNE, this will delight Janeites as well as lovers of nuanced female coming-of-age tales.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
