Put on your party hats! There is something to celebrate! The Sister Queens just received an extremely laudatory and exquisitely written review at Let Them Read Books. Lines like these had me blushing at my desk:
Sophie Perinot’s writing style is simple and honest and all the more eloquent for it.

I was reminded of one of my favorite historical fiction authors, Sharon Kay Penman. (Although Ms. Perinot’s style is deliciously more sexy There’s not a word out of place, and I must have marked a dozen beautiful passages of description and observation. Whether the emotion is grief, anger, or love, Perinot gives it life and evokes it from the reader.”

Historical fiction lovers rejoice! A new and true talent has arrived on the scene!”
And while I am busy hugging myself (yeah, I do that), you should plan on returning to Let Them Read Books tomorrow because Jenny will be hosting a giveaway. I will also be guest posting on a new reading list I started at Goodreads—a list you may be very interested in.
