About Daphne Woods

My love of rural Hunterdon County, New Jersey, combined with my admiration for nineteenth-century English literature, inspired this book. While I can never hope to compare with those extraordinary geniuses of the past, and I do not try to model my writing style on any of them, I hope, like Dickens, Eliot, and Brontë, to embed an exploration of social and cultural issues in a great narrative. It is very possible that a little of the irony and humor of Jane Austen can also be detected.

I’d love to hear from you. Use my Contact page to drop me a note to share your thoughts about the novel or about anything of interest.
