"The Semi-Attached Couple is the answer to a good many prayers. It is the book you go on to when you have run out of Jane Austen's novels." -Noel Perrin, The Washington Post

"Emily Eden was a witty nineteenth-century aristocrat whose two delightful novels were first presented to an admiring world one hundred and fifty years ago. These matching masterpieces satirize the social world Eden knew, loved, and laughed at. Like Jane Austen she is concerned with love and marriage, money and manners. But her voice is distinct. Eden's charm and humor and her sharp social commentary make her work enduringly captivating." -book cover
