Reviews for
 Another Heartbeat in the House
Everything is alive in Kate Beaufoy's new novel: the slang of a former era rings authentically, a house has a personality, a dog has a voice. If you're looking for an absorbing, delicious well-told tale in which to lose yourself, this is it.
- Evening Herald

Beaufoy convincingly channels voices from the 1930s and 1840s to create a hugely enjoyable book, perfect for a lazy summer afternoon.
Irish Times
[Beaufoy's] keen ear for dialogue echoes with the wit of Austen.
- Irish Independent
Sweeps you away to an Ireland of the past and keeps you utterly enthralled.
- Marian Keyes
A compelling atmosperic story brimming with period detail about two feisty, independent heroines who will steal your heart.
- Cathy Kelly
With a marvellously evocative setting, strong and believable lead characters and a pacey plot, Another Heartbeat in the House is a great read
- Liz Trenow
A delightful story, rich, engrossing and vividly told
- Rachel Hore
A historical novel about a proto-feminist who might have been the inspiration for Thackeray's Becky Sharp.
 It's funny, intelligent and intriguing.

- Best Books of Summer, Woman & Home

Lightness of touch with wonderful scene-setting, a brace of brave and independent female characters who nest in your imagination and refuse be evicted - and William Thackeray to boot... Settle in and enjoy.
