The Emma Project:
“This book holds a galaxy of depth in its pages; it is powerful and loving, sensual and layered. Sonali Dev’s writing is glorious.” — Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author, on Incense and Sensibility
“Incense and Sensibility is a tender, well-crafted novel, as much about finding purpose as it is about falling in love. Dev writes with such rare empathy and humor that I often found myself holding my breath on one page only to be giggling by the next. This is the kind of book you finish with a whole-body, happy sigh and a warm ache in your chest where the characters will live on. Yash and India’s story will stick with me for a long time.” — Emily Henry, New York Times bestselling author
“A delight from start to finish, both for Jane Austen fans looking for a fresh take and readers seeking deeply felt relationships and complicated family dynamics. In Dev’s world, the past is alive in the present; I was wholly engrossed and had plenty to think about. At the same time, the reality TV storyline added a thread of pure fun escapism—something all of us need right now.” — Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author, on Recipe for Persuasion
“Dev continues the story of the Raje family with this nuanced and powerful second chance romance, a loose riff on Jane Austen’s Persuasion. Dev balances the toe-curling romance with high-octane family drama…[her] candor and sensitivity in both story lines set this family-centric romance apart. Readers are sure to be impressed.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Recipe for Persuasion
“Clever allusions to Persuasion aside (even Jane Austen fans will be challenged to spot them all), this is a sumptuously multilayered story about the ways love gets tangled in family life and romantic relationships.” — Library Journal (starred review) on Recipe for Persuasion
