“A stellar novel that celebrates sisterhood and the way women can step out of flawed men’s shadows. I delighted in every page.”
—Amy Meyerson, bestselling author of The Bookshop of Yesterdays and The Imperfects


No surprise is a good surprise. At least according to thirty-four-year-old Daisy Richardson. So when it’s revealed in dramatic fashion that her esteemed father had been involved in a public scandal before his untimely death, Daisy’s life becomes complicated—and fast.

For one, the Richardsons must now sell the family home in Georgetown they can no longer afford, and Daisy’s mother is holding on with an iron grip. Her younger sister, Wallis, is ready to move on to bigger and better things but falls fast and hard for the most inconvenient person possible. And then there’s Atlas, Daisy’s best friend. She’s always wished they could be more, but now he’s writing an exposé on the one subject she’s been desperate to avoid: her father.

Daisy’s plan is to maintain a low profile as she works to keep her family intact amid social exile, public shaming, and quickly dwindling savings. But the spotlight always seems to find the Richardsons, and when another twist in the scandal comes to light, Daisy must confront the consequences of her continued silence and summon the courage to stand up and accept the power of her own voice.

“Warm, witty, and whip-smart. Edmondson’s talent shines in her expertly crafted story of two sisters breaking free of their father’s legacy. A sensational debut.”

Praise for this book

"A warm, witty, and whip-smart modern spin on Sense and Sensibility, Ladies of the House pulled me in on page one and didn't let me go until the last, satisfying scene. Edmondson's talent shines in her expertly crafted story of two sisters using their brains and hearts to break free of their father's legacy and voice their desires, despite the sexist double standards that would keep them quiet. A sensational debut." - Amy Mason Doan

"A fun and clever take on Sense and Sensibility, Ladies of the House is replete with witty banter and keen social commentary. Like any good modernization, it also stands alone as a stellar novel, one that celebrates sisterhood and the way women can step out of flawed men's shadows. I delighted in every page of this fast-paced, redemptive novel." - Amy Meyerson

"I was absolutely charmed by Ladies of the House, a modern retelling of Sense and Sensibility, and a delightful and insightful exploration into finding your own voice, discovering your best self and falling in love, in its many iterations. What a wonderful debut." - Allison Winn Scotch
