Review

PRAISE FOR MY LADY JANE: ★ "Wacky, irreverent, and just plain fun. This fantasy-adventure politely tips its hat to history before joyfully punting it out of the way. An utter delight."--Booklist (starred review)

★ "An uproarious historical fantasy that's not to be missed."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Gleefully anachronistic comedy."--Kirkus Reviews

"Three cheers for this well-written and rollicking revision of history full of timely mannerisms and bold adventure. Those who enjoy clever humor, colorful fantasy, and light romance will savor each page."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"The Tudors meets Monty Python. Prepare to laugh and gasp and clutch your pearls."--Tahereh Mafi, New York Times bestselling author of the Shatter Me series

"History, humor, and unexpected magic come together in this marvelous story."--Jessica Day George, author of Silver in the Blood

"Adventure, intrigue, humor, and romance abound. A great choice for those who enjoy lighthearted, alternative history adventures."--School Library Journal

★ "A delightfully deadpan deconstruction of a Gothic novel, with a ghost almost no one can see providing the commentary. Marvelously self-aware and almost too clever for its own good."--Booklist (starred review)

★ "A madcap story of ghosts, possession, revenge, and murder. Humorously blends fact with fiction and offers a gentler, more hopeful outcome for Charlotte, her siblings, and her heroine."--School Library Journal (starred review)

"Reader, it delighted. A fun, supernatural mashup of different literary novels that shines on its own merit."--Kirkus Reviews

From the Back Cover

A fantastic, romantic, comedic, entirely faithful <but not really> retelling of JANE EYRE

You may think you know the story. After a miserable childhood, penniless orphan Jane Eyre becomes a governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she meets one dark, brooding Mr. Rochester. Despite their significant age gap <yikes!> and his uneven temper <double yikes!>, they fall in love—and, Reader, she marries him.

We have a different story to tell.

JANE <--- best friends with a ghost
has endured years of hardship and misery, and is ready to embark on a new life as a governess at Thornfield Hall. She’s rather poor. She’s rather plain. Also, she has terrible taste in men.

CHARLOTTE <--- just try to tell her no
is an aspiring novelist. (Yes, she’s that Charlotte.) And she’s determined to capture her friend Jane’s story even if it means worming her way into the most epic ghost hunt this side of Wuthering Heights.

ALEXANDER <--- ghost hunter extraordinaire
is an agent of the Society for the Relocation of Wayward Spirits. He’s about to discover something very disturbing going on at a little place called Thornfield . . . 

READER, there will be murder. Mayhem. Conspiracy. And, of course, romance. Prepare for an adventure of Gothic proportions, in which all is not as it seems, and a certain gentleman, Mr. Rochester, is hiding more than skeletons in his closets.
