Eloisa is extra excited that AppleBooks named Wilde Child as one of the Best Books Of March, and gave a lovely review: “James is the pen name of Shakespeare scholar Mary Bly, and as Joan plans a performance of Hamlet for her family—in which she’ll play the titular character, in breeches no less! — we get to enjoy the author’s insight into the Bard’s work. We love this compelling romance.”
