Just in time for the holidays! It’s a Wonderful Regency Christmas , a collection of six Christmas stories by the late and much missed Word Wench, Edith Layton, has just been released.
Edith wrote many and varied wonderful stories, but she had a special gift for Christmas novellas. For the first time, these six novellas are available in one volume. The stories have been out of print for years, so this is a special treat for Layton Lovers and else who loves a warm, romantic holiday tale.
This collection includes the following stories:
The Duke’s Progress
It’s a Wonderful Christmas
The Gingerbread Man
The Last Gift
The Amiable Miser
I haven’t read Dogstar yet, but since Edith was a whole-hearted dog lover, I expect something really special!
I just reread the first story, The Duke's Progress, and it was as lovely as when I first read it on the initial release. A lonely and depressed duke, a winsome little boy, and the perfect woman to take dashing through the snow on a sleigh! What more can a sentimental lover of Christmas stories want?
It's available as an ebook for the first time and in paperback almost everywhere books are sold. Edith's daughter Susie Felber says fans have been asking for this for years, and she's delighted to publish the first Layton Christmas collection is here–so we readers can be delighted as well!
PS: A surprise bonus! Susie Felber will give an e-book of IT'S A WONDERFUL REGENCY CHRISTMAS to one person who comments between now and Sunday midnight. Good luck!
