I absolutely loved The Elopement. I can't praise it enough. The characters are warm and engaging and the story is wise and wonderful. Tracy has woven a rich tapestry of colourful characters so full of heart, against the fascinating and thought-provoking backdrop of late Victorian England. It was an absolute joy. -- Rosanna Ley, author of <i>The Forever Garden</i> If you're after a dose of escapist historical romance full of female empowerment, you won't find anything better than The Elopement. * Culturefly * The Elopement is historical fiction at its best. Through a skilfully crafted plot and wonderful characters, the reader is plunged into a world that feels authentic, fascinating and totally entertaining. * My Weekly * The Elopement is a beautiful novel about taking wrong turnings on the path to love and happiness. The characters step from the pages in all their wilfulness and folly and make us care desperately what happens to them. Tracy Rees is a brilliant, immersive storyteller who truly understands the human heart. I adore all her novels, but this is my favourite so far. -- Gill Paul, Author of <i>The Manhattan Girls</i> I've long been a huge fan of Tracy's sumptuous, immersive storytelling . . . The Elopement is another absolute beauty. -- Jenny Ashcroft, author of <i>Beneath a Burning Sky</i> Absolutely loved this book about three kick ass women in Victorian London learning how to be true to themselves. Full of joy and wisdom - it left a big smile on my face. -- Caroline Bishop, author of <i>The Lost Chapter</i> I've long been a huge fan of Tracy's sumptuous, immersive storytelling, and with The Elopement she's swept me away yet again. She has such a talent for creating the most wonderful characters - within pages, I feel I know them, and that they've become friends - and is a master at spinning gripping, lose-yourself, forget about everything and everyone else, tales. Full of warmth and love, The Elopement is another absolute beauty. -- <span>Jenny Ashcroft on </span><i>The Elopement</i> I absolutely loved this story . . . captivating . . .

The rich use of language meant I was fully immersed in the Victorian world of the main women protagonists and didn't want to leave. Written with empathy and revealing differing sides to even more minor characters, the roles and attitudes to women at the end of the Victorian period and the emerging 'women's movement were riveting. Totally unputdownable. -- Dinah Jefferies on <i>The Rose Garden</i> A rich, compelling and intricate tapestry of women's lives . . . their wants, needs and dreams through the characters diverse lives. I couldn't put it down. -- <span>Liz Fenwick on </span><i>The Rose Garden</i><br> A rich historical drama that is both a subtle study of the treatment of women and an entertaining escape. Pure joy. -- <span>Jo Spain on </span><i>The Rose Garden</i>
