Praise for Shirley Kennedy and her novels

"The historical details are vivid and realistic and should appeal to fans of the historical romance genre. The characters are interesting, the story is engaging, and the romance is slow-building and sweet. River Queen Rose is a great start in what looks to be a promising historical series by Kennedy."
-- RT Book Reviews , 4 Stars

"Shirley Kennedy spins a tale sure to pull at the heartstrings of her readers."
-- RT Book Reviews on Three Wishes for Miss Winthrop , 4 stars
