Description
Lucy Derrick is a young woman of good breeding and poor finances, in this seventh novel from the Edgar Award–winning author of A Conspiracy of Paper and The Whiskey Rebels. After the death of her father, Lucy is forced to maintain a shabby dignity as the unwanted boarder of her tyrannical uncle, fending off marriage to a local mill owner. On the cusp of accepting this life of misery, however, Lucy's course takes a dramatic turn when a handsome stranger—the poet and rake Lord Byron—arrives at her uncle's house, stricken by what seems to be a curse and bearing a cryptic message for Lucy.

"David Liss takes readers on a light-hearted romp through Regency England.... With an adroit mix of fact and fantasy, Liss casts heroine Lucy Derrick into a world of industrializing mill towns, mysterious enchantments, ghostly dogs, undead fairies, Luddites, and even Lord Byron and his legions of lovesick women. Charged with gathering the scattered pages of an alchemical manuscript, Lucy's adventures teach her that appearances can be deceptive—and delightfully so. Liss's deft touch with historical subject matter and his ability to craft tremendously appealing characters makes this a thoroughly enjoyable, satisfying read."—Deborah Harkness
