From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes this irresistible treat, a charming and jaunty graphic novel, based on story snippets peppered throughout a number of her books. Originally mentioned in It’s in His Kiss—one of the Bridgerton novels which inspired the smash Netflix series, BridgertonMiss Butterworth and the Mad Baron is finally told here in its entirety for the first time. A madcap romantic adventure, Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron has appeared in several Julia Quinn novels and enthralled some of her most beloved characters. Now, this delicious tale of love and peril is available for everyone to enjoy in this wonderfully unconventional graphic novel. Born into a happy family that is tragically ravaged by smallpox, Miss Priscilla Butterworth uses her wits to survive a series of outlandish trials. Cruelly separated from her beloved mother and grandmother, the young girl is sent to live with a callous aunt who forces her to work for her keep. Eventually, the clever and tenderhearted Miss Butterworth makes her escape... a daring journey into the unknown that unexpectedly leads her to the “mad” baron and a lifetime of love. Delightfully illustrated by Violet Charles, told in Julia Quinn’s playful voice, Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron is a high-spirited nineteenth-century romp that will entertain and enchant modern readers.

Det här var en skruvad och helgalen berättelse med en hel del blodiga och våldsamma inslag. Violet – som gick bort i en tragisk bilolycka tillsammans med sin pappa, man och hund – hade en unik stil som jag tycker om och det är sorgligt att det här blir hennes första och enda bok. Det är hennes syster Julia Quinn som står för berättandet och det är långt ifrån Bridgerton om vi säger så. Extremt galet och kul helt enkelt. Rekommenderas varmt och Rest in Peace Violet ❤️
