I loved "The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheevers," but this older Quinn novel may actually surpass that excellent offering. This book is a true classic in every sense of the word. A timeless, beautiful story, and the writing is among the very best regency offerings I have sampled. The "modern day Jane Austen" label that seems like a bit much hype on Quinn's more ho-hum offerings is fully realized here. The depth of emotion here truly carries the story.
