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 house guest, 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.

Praise for Lady Jayne Disappears:

“Emotional. Intriguing. Both haunting and romantic. . . In her historical fiction debut, Joanna Davidson Politano delivers a smart plot that navigates twists and turns with a mixture of wit, intelligent characters, and a refreshingly original voice. Reminiscent of Dickens’ classic storytelling, Lady Jayne Disappears is a debut to remember!”

Kristy Cambron, author of The Illusionist’s Apprentice

“Wonderfully unique, this compelling debut grabs you from the first intriguing line. The evocative English setting, textured characters, literary theme, and unusual romance make Lady Jayne Disappears a standout, the lovely cover offering a hint of the gem within. A must read!”

Laura Frantz, author of A Moonbow Night

When I read the synopsis of this book I was intrigued, but I confess: I was not anticipating to be drawn in as quickly as I was. This is an incredible debut novel and I am already looking forward to more from this author.  I have a weakness for well-done historical novels, and this one ticks all the boxes.
It offers up a layered mystery with plenty of twists, a vividly imagined Victorian setting and memorable characters (to love and hate), and a bit of romance to grab you by the heart. All this, and it’s offered up in a richly crafted tale and a wonderful heroine.
Passionate, clever and brave – three words which describe the main character Aurelie Harcourt in Lady Jayne Disappears.  She offers up a delightful contrast to the stuffy and yet delightfully well-drawn family members that occupy of her aunt’s home.  Aurelie is smart, kindhearted, and industrious and I was completely sucked into her story (and rooting for a happy ending for her).

If you gauge a book by how well the author can twist your emotions around her writing pen, this one gets five stars. I found myself alternately holding my breath, tense, maddened, applauding her wit, hopeful, worried….did I mention that the author wove a skillful plot?

This may be my favorite historical fiction book this year and I can’t recommend it enough.

Joanna Davidson Politano freelances for a small nonfiction publisher but spends much of her time spinning tales that capture the colorful, exquisite details in ordinary lives. Her manuscript for Lady Jayne Disappears was a finalist for several contests, including the 2016 Genesis Award from ACFW, and won the OCW Cascade Award and the Maggie Award for Excellence. She is always on the hunt for random acts of kindness, people willing to share their deepest secrets with a stranger, and hidden stashes of sweets. She lives with her husband and their two babies in a house in the woods near Lake Michigan and shares stories that move her on her website.
