First and foremost, however, a lady of quality must marry well, and alas Jane's ambitions do not extend to her romantic prospects. Compared to her beautiful sister Melody, Jane feels invisible to suitors, and is resigned to a life of spinsterhood.But when her beloved family comes under threat, Jane uses her magical skills to put things right, which attracts the attention of professional glamourist Mr Vincent . . . and unwittingly wanders in to a love story of her own., In a Jane Austen-inspired alternate universe, two sisters, one beautiful and the other skilled in the glamour arts, test the limits of their gifts on an unscrupulous suitor., Kowal, Mary Robinette,1969-, Kowal, Mary Robinette., Kowal, Mary Robinetteauthor, Love stories., MWT11804478, Made available through hoopla, Magic, Mate selection, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York :Tor,2010., PS3611.O74948S53 2010, Read by Mary Robinette Kowal., Shades of Milk and Honey, Shades of milk and honey /Mary Robinette Kowal., Shades of milk and honeyMary Robinette Kowal., Sisters, TBX, TBXdistributor, The fantasy novel you've always wished Jane Austen had written Shades of Milk and Honey is exactly what we could expect from Jane Austen if she had been a fantasy writer: Pride and Prejudice meets Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. It is an intimate portrait of a woman, Jane, and her quest for love in a world where the manipulation of glamour is considered an essential skill for a lady of quality. Jane and her sister Melody vie for the attentions of eligible men, and while Jane's skill with glamour is remarkable, it is her sister who is fair of face. When Jane realizes that one of Melody's suitors is set on taking advantage of her sister for the sake of her dowry, she pushes her skills to the limit of what her body can withstand in order to set things right-and, in the process, accidentally wanders into a love story of her own., TotalBooxdistributor, Unabridged., Vendor-supplied metadata, Women, Women -- Conduct of life -- Fiction., [1st trade pbk. ed.], [United States]:Macmillan Audio ,2010., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital.,, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text file, texttxt
