The fantasy novel you've always wished Jane Austen had written, Shades of Milk and Honey is exactly what we could expect from Austen if she had been a fantasy writer: Pride and Prejudice meets Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. It is an intimate portrait of a woman, Jane, and her quest for love in a world where the manipulation of glamour is considered an essential skill for a lady of quality.

Jane and her sister Melody vie for the attentions of eligible men, and while Jane's skill with glamour is remarkable, it is her sister who is fair of face.

When Jane realizes that one of Melody's suitors is set on taking advantage of her sister for the sake of her dowry, she pushes her skills to the limit of what her body can withstand in order to set things right - and, in the process, accidentally wanders into a love story of her own.

    " Good. In the style of Jane Austen, but with some magical art involved. A little like Sorcery and Cecilia, but not in letter firm and with quieter magic. "

    " A slight twist with the magic on a Jane Austen-type novel. Enjoyable and pleasant to read. Yay! "

    " What a sweet book! I really liked the main character and wanted her to do well. The whole "glamour" thing is really quite creative. "

    " Fast read; Kowal was able to blend the elements of illusion/glamour within a twisted Jane Austen setting. Really liked the character of Jane and detested her sister, Melody. Enjoyed the mysterious character of Mr. Vincent and the subtle love triangle that emerged as the plot was developed. Recommended for Jane Austen fans. "
