Synopsis: An imaginative story of a woman caught in an alternate world—where she will need to learn the skills of magic to survive

Nora Fischer?s dissertation is stalled and her boyfriend is about to marry another woman.  During a miserable weekend at a friend?s wedding, Nora wanders off and walks through a portal into a different world where she?s transformed from a drab grad student into a stunning beauty.  Before long, she has a set of glamorous new friends and her romance with gorgeous, masterful Raclin is heating up. It?s almost too good to be true.

Then the elegant veneer shatters. Nora?s new fantasy world turns darker, a fairy tale gone incredibly wrong. Making it here will take skills Nora never learned in graduate school. Her only real ally—and a reluctant one at that—is the magician Aruendiel, a grim, reclusive figure with a biting tongue and a shrouded past. And it will take her becoming Aruendiel?s student—and learning magic herself—to survive. When a passage home finally opens, Nora must weigh her “real life? against the dangerous power of love and magic.

For lovers of Lev Grossman's The Magicians series ( The Magicians and The Magician King) and Deborah Harkness's All Souls Trilogy ( A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night).

Product Description: “If Hermione Granger had been an American who never received an invitation to Hogwarts, this might have been her story.? —People

Earning comparisons to wildly popular fantasy novels by Deborah Harkness and Lev Grossman, Emily Croy Barker?s enchanting debut offers an intelligent escape into a richly imagined world. And with an appealing female protagonist, cinematic storytelling, wry humor, and wonderfully clever literary references, The Thinking Woman?s Guide to Real Magic is sure to capture the imaginations of readers everywhere.

During a miserable weekend at a friend?s wedding, eager to forget about her disastrous breakup and stalled dissertation, Nora Fischer wanders off and somehow finds herself in another realm. There, she meets glamorous Ilissa—who introduces Nora to a decadent new world—and her gorgeous son Raclin. But when the elegant veneer of this dreamland shatters, Nora finds herself in a fairy tale gone incredibly wrong. And the only way she can survive is by learning real magic herself.
