‘A lovely, smart, strange novel with everything on earth to recommend it...This story is one part meticulous manners and one part wild magic – utterly irresistible.’ Cherie Priest
In Regency England, Jane Ellsworth of Dorchester is a woman ahead of her time: not only is she highly skilled in the manipulation of glamour - plucking strands from the Ether to create magical illusions - she's also ambitious for her art. First and foremost, however, a lady of quality must marry well; and while her sister Melody has plenty of suitors, Jane has resigned herself to invisibility. But when a threat to her family causes Jane to push her magical skills to their limits, she attracts the attention of professional glamourist Mr Vincent...and wanders in to a love story of her very own.
Hugo-award winning author, Mary Robinette Kowal, is a novelist, professional puppeteer and voice actor. In 2008 she won the Campbell Award for Best New Writer and her short story ‘For Want of a Nail’ won the Hugo Award for Best Short Story in 2011. Mary currently lives in Chicago with her husband.
Just confirmed: Mary Robinette Kowal will demonstrate her puppetry skills at the start of the signing. Get there early!
