Jessica Day George

 

Reviews

"On the heels of the success of Princess of the Midnight Ball (2009), George’s sequel follows one sister, Poppy, to Breton. While staying with her Seadown cousins, Poppy’s eye is caught by Christian, the Crowne Prince of Danelaw, and a romance begins to bud. But a maid in the Seadowns’ home, Eleanora, somehow manages to get a gown and attend the ball, appearing to cast a spell over the men in attendance. In a clever reworking of the Cinderella story, George once again proves adept at spinning her own magical tale. Fans of Donna Jo Napoli’s retellings will cheer loudly as George proves her own mettle." — Booklist
