AN IRRESISTIBLE NOVEL THAT PUTS A MODERN SPIN ON JANE AUSTEN'S CLASSIC SENSE AND SENSIBILITY

"I was absolutely charmed by Ladies of the House. A wonderful debut." --Allison Winn Scotch, bestselling author of Cleo McDougal Regrets Nothing

No surprise is a good surprise. At least according to thirty-four-year-old Daisy Richardson. So when it's revealed in dramatic fashion that her esteemed father had been involved in a public scandal before his untimely death, Daisy's life becomes complicated--and fast.

For one, the Richardsons must now sell the family home in Georgetown they can no longer afford, and Daisy's mother is holding on with an iron grip. Her younger sister, Wallis, is ready to move on to bigger and better things but falls fast and hard for the most inconvenient person possible. And then there's Atlas, Daisy's best friend. She's always wished they could be more, but now he's writing an expos on the one subject she's been desperate to avoid: her father.

Daisy's plan is to maintain a low profile as she works to keep her family intact amid social exile, public shaming, and quickly dwindling savings. But the spotlight always seems to find the Richardsons, and when another twist in the scandal comes to light, Daisy must confront the consequences of her continued silence and summon the courage to stand up and accept the power of her own voice.

"A stellar novel that celebrates sisterhood and the way women can step out of flawed men's shadows. I delighted in every page."
--Amy Meyerson, bestselling author of The Bookshop of Yesterdays and The Imperfects

"Warm, witty, and whip-smart. Edmondson's talent shines in her expertly crafted story of two sisters breaking free of their father's legacy. A sensational debut."
--Amy Mason Doan, author of The Summer List and Lady Sunshine
