Kitty Lewis travels with her younger sister, Clara, to join their family for the season in Bath. Her mother is intent upon finding a husband for their elder sister, Lucinda, and believes she has found the perfect match in Captain James Northwood, a distinguished naval officer.
With time, however, Kitty begins to suspect that her sister’s affection lies elsewhere. Meanwhile, her own plan, to keep her head firmly fixed in a book and thus avoid all the nonsense going on about her, goes gradually awry.
A short romance, set in Regency England.
"A charming short story, with amusing and likeable characters, that will have you smiling the whole way through … captured the spirit of our well-loved Regency romances far better than some lengthier works," (Goodreads Review).
"I so enjoyed this light and engaging read! The characters were well developed for a short book. I felt transported to the time," (5 star review).
"Kitty is a well-written traditional regency novella. The romance is sweet. Chapman certainly knows her Pride and Prejudice: the story borrows more than a few themes from Austen's famous work, much to the amusement of the reader," (4 star review).
"A quick and delightful read. The quiet bookworm meets the handsome captain. The dialogue and characters carry a very Pride & Prejudice-esque tone," (4 star review).
"I recommend it to all who just need a small diversion from life," (4 star review).
