Read full description of the books:
All of life's a wicked stage and love a dangerous drama...
"A fascinating portrayal of London's theatrical milieu...Ware again proves she can intertwine fact and fiction to create an entertaining and harmonious whole."
If Shakespeare had a sister...
In 18th century London the glamorous Drury Lane and Covent Garden theatres were all the rage, beckoning every young actor, actress, playwright, and performer with the lure of the stage lights. But competition and back-biting between theatre owners, patrons, actors, and writers left aspiring playwrights with their work stolen, profits withheld, and reputations on the line. For a female, things were harder still, as the chances of a "petticoat playwright" getting past the government censor was slim.
In this exciting and cutthroat world, a young woman with a skill for writing and an ambition to see her work performed could rise to glory, or could lose all in the blink of an eye...
In Ciji Ware's signature style, real-life characters of the day create a backdrop for a portrait of a glittering era, a love story, and a compelling glimpse into what life was like for a strong and independent-minded woman in an emphatically man's world.
"A historical novel so lively and intriguing, you don't realize you've learnt anything till after you close the book. Exciting, entertaining, and enlightening."

Read information about the authorCiji Ware, a graduate of Harvard University in History, is a New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of historical and contemporary fiction, and two works of nonfiction. Her latest release is THAT SPRING IN PARIS, Book 4 of her Four Seasons Quartet. Set in San Francisco, as well as Paris, this skillful weaving of fact and fiction tells the story of two Americans--both emotional exiles --who literally collide at the entrance to a Paris hospital, each desperately searching for friends felled in the same unspeakable tragedy. This deeply romantic saga delivers a gripping story about the discovery of love and regained serenity in the wake of horrifying events. Ware, an Emmy-award-winning radio and TV producer & broadcaster for 23 years in Los Angeles, now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her family circle includes a husband of several decades, a grown son and daughter-in-law, and now two grandsons under four, along with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Cholly Knickerbocker. Ware lives in a cottage by the sea and loves nothing more than to curl up with a good book (or a download on her iPad) in front of a fireplace with a cup of tea and a scone--that is if she's not acting or dancing in local amateur theatricals...
