    Though Maria Grace has been writing fiction since she was ten years old, those early efforts happily reside in a file drawer and are unlikely to see the light of day again, for which many are grateful After penning five file drawer novels in high school, she took a break from writing to pursue college and earn her doctorate in Educational Psychology After 16 years of university teaching, she returned to her first love, fiction writing She has one husband and one grandson, two graduate degrees and two black belts, three sons, four undergraduate majors, five nieces, is starting her sixth year blogging on Random Bits of Fascination, has built seven websites, attended eight English country dance balls, sewn nine Regency era costumes, and shared her life with ten cats.

    A very competent, if short, introduction to courtship and marriage during the regency period. An excellent guide for anyone who has ever read a regency romance and wondered exactly what is meant by jointure or entail, and what's the difference between dowry and dower?As the title implies, the book references Jane Austen novels a lot for context and suggests different ways that we can interpet the actions of characters. How would the average regency reader have viewed Charlotte Lucas? Hard-hearte [...]

    I received an ARC of this book for an honest review.I love Jane Austen and Jane Austen Fan Fiction. I have read my fair share of both over the years as well as other Regency romances. I thought I was familiar with the do's and dont's of the time through osmosiswas I ever mistaken!Maria Grace has written with a light but deft hand the intricacies of courtship and marriage during the Regency period. This serious business of courtship and marriage is conveyed with a sense of humour and examples fro [...]

    I received the Kindle version free in a giveaway by Maria Grace. This is my honest opinion.I found it very interesting. I've read a lot of regency romances, and some non-fiction about that time, but I still learned some new stuff. It's informative without being too "scholarly", and the author frequently refers to specific Austen characters.There are some minor problems with the wrong word being used, presumably due to auto-fill or spellchecker (for example "romans" instead of "romance"), and pun [...]

    Great background information, particularly for those writing historical fiction in this era or wanting to understand the dynamics of the relationships in Jane Austen's novels. I found myself sending passages to my PC via the Kindle's email function to keep as notes for my own writing projects.In terms of the actual laws and rituals of the time, let's just say I'm glad things have changed.

    I enjoyed this book. It was wonderful for anyone who wants to know about Courtship and Marriage during Jane Austen's time and understand many of the situations brought up in Pride and Prejudice as well as Jane's other stories.

    Informative and cheeky! A lot of info I already knew, and a fair bit to learn about the legal side of things! I definitely have a new appreciation of my rights as a woman in the 21st century.
