There is a hint of the Jane Austens about Rosalie Ham's new novel *
Sydney Morning Herald *
While it's the social and romantic intrigue that carries the story, it's Ham's wickedly black humour and finely researched social observation that deliver the real joy of the book * The Australian *
The novel is a delight. Complex beneath its witty surface, and one of the surprising fictional treats of the year * The Bulletin *
