English sample & synopsis, series presentation
Glamor, the courtly life, beautiful dresses, and passion!
A new series about the Grand Duchy of Finland in the spirit of Jane Austen.
Strict class hierarchy and fabulous silk ruffles rule in 19th-century Turku, where seamstress Charlotta is looking for her own Mr. Darcy. When baron Ridderlöw of Starfire Manor hires seamstress Charlotta Silke as a lady’s maid for her sister, their lives change for good.
Charlotta gets her hands on Jane Austen’s newly published Pride and Prejudice, which alters the way she sees her role as a woman. But the book’s ideas of modern love, marriage and early feminism are put to the test as the bitter war-torn baron Ridderlöw becomes romantically interested in Charlotta. Can an ordinary lady’s maid have it all: a meaningful life and the man of her dreams?
"We're very excited to introduce Sara Medberg to the Swedish readers. Her eye for historical details are impressive, and we love the Nordic setting for her books."
