Praise for The Princess Who Had No Kingdom: 'If you're going to enter the rococo Neverland of poor-but-deserving princesses searching for Mr Right among assorted prince Wrongs, you might as well do it with the skill and aplomb of Ursula Jones and Sarah Gibb.' - Financial Times 'An old-fashioned, romantic fairy tale with Crabtree and Evelyn decorative elegance, detailed silhouettes, and bronze gilding. Such outstanding prettiness with substance is rare, but this will win any girlie heart.' - Sunday Times
