  • In her second novel, Wicked Company, Ware again proves she can intertwine fact and fiction to create an entertaining and harmonious whole, offering a fascinating portrayal of London’s theatrical milieu, with characters such as [government censor Edward] Capell, Garrick and Frances Sheridan–mother of Richard Brinsley and a playwright herself–convincingly drawn from history.

  • From the award-winning author of Island of the Swans comes a rich, engrossing tale set in 18th century London’s bawdy Drury Lane. Review
  • After brilliantly breathing life into historical London, Edinburgh, Natchez, and New Orleans, Ware, in A Race to Splendor, now sets her sights on fin-de-siècle San Francisco. Richly drawn characters set against the backdrop of the ‘06 earthquake will keep you turning those pages!
    Michael Llewellyn,
    author of Twelfth Night
  • Ciji Ware’s skill as both an historian and storyteller continue to amaze. A Race to Splendor won’t disappoint her legion of fans—especially those who have left their hearts in San Francisco.
    Maggie Lyons,
    author of Heirs of Rebellion
