A picturesque dose of time travel, romance and the atmosphere of 19th-century England . . . plenty of upper-crust scandals and snobbery to keep anglophiles engaged.
~Publishers Weekly

“Richly textured and carefully researched . . . a bright and bawdy romp that combines nitty-gritty life in 1801 Britain with the wit of the real Jane Austen. Amanda Elyot brings the past alive in this fresh and wickedly clever tale.”
~Bestselling author Mary Jo Putney

“. . .Teeming with period detail, By a Lady provides a sly peek into Austen’s England through the eyes of a thoroughly modern heroine.”
~New York Times bestselling author Lauren Willig

A delight from beginning to end.  C.J. could be a stand-in for any reader who wishes for a simpler time when cell phones weren’t omnipresent, violence was something to read about in the papers, and polite society was considered the norm.  The author’s love for Jane Austen and her time period shines from every page. . . . a must-read for any Jane Austen fan, as well as those who enjoy time travel, romance, and a bit of mystery.  I can’t wait to see what this author does next.
