Summary
Seventeen-year-old Althea is the sole support of her entire family, and she must marry well. But there are few wealthy suitors—or suitors of any kind—in their small Yorkshire town of Lesser Hoo. Then, the young and attractive (and very rich) Lord Boring arrives, and Althea sets her plans in motion. There's only one problem; his friend and business manager Mr. Fredericks keeps getting in the way. And, as it turns out, Fredericks has his own set of plans . . . This witty take on the classic Regency—Patrice Kindl's first novel in a decade—is like literary champagne! "If you're a fan of I Capture the Castle you will love this sharply funny tale of courtship. A delicious confection." — Polly Shulman, author of Enthusiasm "Take one Austenian heroine in desperate financial straits. Put her in a crumbling castle, give her two evil stepsisters and some very unsuitable suitors. Make it funny! Patrice Kindl's Keeping the Castle is an absolute charmer!" — Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club
