Quotes & Awards

  • “Debut novelist Chapin has crafted a fascinating and masterly background to Shakespeare’s first published work, the narrative poem Venus and Adonis…Fans of historical fiction writers such as Philippa Gregory, Rosalind Miles, and Anne Easter Smith won’t want to miss this one.”

    Library Journal

  • “Chapin’s debut novel imagines the shaky romance between a widow and her nephews’ tutor, a budding actor and poet named William Shakespeare, against the background of family strife and religious persecution in 16th-century England…Chapin’s inaugural work offers a fun portrait of Shakespeare as a cad.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Chapin sets the stage for a smart and charming work of historical fiction. Using blank spaces in Shakespeare’s biography and the facts of his oeuvre, Chapin makes her heroine co-creator of ‘Venus and Adonis’…An elegant entertainment and an impressive debut.”
