Publisher's Description

When Aurelie Harcourt's father dies in debtor's prison, he leaves her just two things: his wealthy family, whom she has never met, and his famous pen name, Nathaniel Droll. Her new family greets her with apathy and even resentment. Only the quiet houseguest, Silas Rotherham, welcomes her company.

When Aurelie decides to complete her father's unfinished serial novel, writing the family into the story as unflattering characters, she must keep her identity as Nathaniel Droll hidden while searching for the truth about her mother's disappearance--and perhaps even her father's death.

Author Joanna Davidson Politano's stunning debut set in Victorian England will delight readers with its highly original plot, lush setting, vibrant characters, and reluctant romance.

    This mysterious, gothic tale was full of strange characters and secrets that always felt just beneath the surface. The author did a great job of creating an atmosphere that left me wondering who to trust and what had really happened to the elusive Lady Jayne.

    Aurelie Harcourt was a strange mix of two worlds in this novel. On the one hand, she was fairly accurate at reading the nature of a person. I say fairly accurate, because all was not as it seemed in her strange and moody extended family. On the other hand, she was naive about society and rules, and sometimes revealed too much in her writing.

    I loved the way the author kept me guessing until the last portion of the story, when all was revealed. I am usually able to determine key villains and their reasons for treachery while reading, but not this time! It was delightful to see the way the author creatively and satisfyingly wove it all together!

    "How amazing, how humble, was this girl who broke herself into a million pieces and distributed them to any who had need." (p 65)

    Exquisitely written. Breathtakingly beautiful both in words and in substance. The kind of story you want to nestle into forever. Savor every nuance. Bask in the vivid impressions the author's words conjure up. Images that need to seep into your soul before proceeding any further into the story. And if you stop to record the most quotable of quotes it might just take you a week to finish Lady Jayne Disappears. And you won't mind a bit because it means you get to spend more time in the story. More time with the characters. More time figuring out the mystery (but I bet you won't!)

    There's a story within this story. And it celebrates writers, readers and the written word. In short, it's a bibliophile's dream. I didn't realize I was craving a novel like this until I held it in my hands and even now that I've finished, I can't bring myself to shelve it. I want to keep it close for when I need a book hug. Or profound wisdom on my faith journey and my relationship with God. Or delightfully witty and insightful commentaries on the power in stories. Because my copy is riddled with sticky-note flags that ensure I won't lose a single gem.

    Captivating from the very first page. Aurelie is shrouded in mystery. But then so is Silas. Loved their interactions -- the delicious undercurrents that promise a deeper connection than mere acquaintances. And the way the story unfolds -- so many intricate threads running amok causing chaos and confusion and yet Politano manages to weave them altogether by the end. And it's the kind of ending that amazes and astounds and leaves a reader bereft because you just don't want it to be over. Ever.

    A stunning debut novel. I want more from Joanna Davidson Politano. Right now. Please.

    God answers prayers..."Not in one big powerful move, but gradually so I don't notice until I've turned around and see that I have exactly what I need." (p 225)

    Lady Jayne Disappears started out slowly and difficult for me to understand but once I got into the story, I really enjoyed it! I think the prologue may have confused me! Aurelie Harcourt was an interesting character who played an unusual part in the book. The book is well written with a different plot. I recommend it to others who enjoy regency romantic suspense. I won my copy of Lady Jayne Disappears in a Melissa Jaegers giveaway. This is my honest opinion.

    A masterpiece of Regency romance, Lady Jayne Disappears by Joanna Davidson Politano is a real treat.

    "God, where do I belong?" This is the desperate cry of Aurelie Harcourt, daughter of the famous author, Nathaniel Droll, who dies in debtor's prison.

    Aurelie is then taken in by rich relatives. Trying to hide her past and her identity, Aurelie searches for her mother, Lady Jayne, and her sense of belonging throughout the book.

    I loved so many characters in this book, both good and bad. Or maybe it was how Politano eventually showed us the deeper workings of each individual's heart. Nelle, a servant, shows the love of Jesus when the rich, religious relatives are standoffish and cruel. Other people had surprising character traits that are best discovered by reading the book, rather than spoilers.

    God is woven in and out of the story with the ease of an accomplished basketmaker who deftly pulls each reed throughout the latticework of the others. Aurelie believes Him to be Sovereign and capable of answering the prayers of her confused heart.

    Lady Jayne Disappears is chock full of quotables. A few are here:

    "Shame is reserved for those who disappoint God, not people."

    "If books were alcohol, he'd be the worst drunk in history."

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and Netgalley. I was not required to leave a positive review and all opinions are my own.
