Product description

Review

“A bawdy, romping affair … Delaney mixes up genres ― historical fiction, erotica, magic realism ― to create something original’
- Book of the Month in The Times, November 2016

‘“An irresistible erotic fairytale for adults”
– The Guardian

“With elements of magical realism, plenty of sexy scenes, and a good dollop of drama, this is one hell of a read”
- The Sun

“A saucy bodice-ripper that combines magical realist flights of fancy with a smattering of punchy feminist politics”
– The Metro

"A compelling mix of bawdy romp and magical realism."
- Red

“A fun, explicit romp with real stakes that will have you trying to finish this book in one sitting”
- Stylist

“An Almond for a Parrot romps and twists like the Fairy House girls in their bed chambers. It’s full of lust and magic, but not without heart. It’s an irresistible world to drop into.”
- Emerald Street

Selected as a Buzzfeed Brilliant Book You Must Read This Autumn
