Nancy Pearl, librarian extraordinaire, had kind things to say about the Kate and Cecy books in her recent MORE BOOK LUST.
On page 85, in the section called Fantasy for Young and Old, she says,
"Three wonderful fantasies/romances just right for teenage girls and like-minded adults) are The Sherwood Ring by Elizabeth Marie Pope, which takes place both in the present and during the Revolutionary War period, and two delightful fantasies by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer that will appeal to anyone who loves Regency romances and Jane Austen. The Wrede/Stevermer titles are two of the longest known to humankind: Sorcery & Cecelia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot: Being the Correspondence of Two Young Ladies of Quality Regarding Various Magical Scandals in London and the Country, followed up by The Grand Tour: Being a Revelation of Matters of High Confidentiality and Greatest Importance, Including Extracts from the Intimate Diary of a Noblewoman and the Sworn Testimony of a Lady of Quality."
