“In the tradition of Rosalind Laker, Trent pens stories that illustrate the role women played in the world of art and commerce. She draws readers into the life of a 19th-century interior designer with an enticing backdrop of a love story between a strong woman and a man who is her equal.”  4 stars, RT Book Reviews on BY THE KING’S DESIGN


With a reader at the April 2012 mega-signing at Turn the Page bookstore in Boonsboro, MD.
