Book Description

Truth or dare?
Good English families all have a house in the country with a deer park, a trout stream, and an army of gardeners. They should have a son and if it can be managed, he should be handsome. Cleverness isn’t important. Daughters in limited quantities are fine so long as they are pretty. Bastards are inconvenient and best ignored. It's not a big problem, unless you are one.
Unfortunately, Sophy is.
Sick of her outcast role, she escapes her father’s house, only to fall from her horse during a spring storm. Injured, soaked, and shivering, she stumbles to a stranger’s door—Tom, a blunt edged merchant from a family of vulgar upstarts. Mistaking Sophy for the genuine article, he takes her in.
Sophy can’t resist twisting the truth. Soon she’s caught in her own snare—and it might just be a noose.

I believe this might be the only historical fiction book by Ms. Fixsen. At any rate, I couldn't find any other books listed on Amazon. If this is indeed her first book, then she is certainly to be commended for this amazing effort.

Ten year old Sophy was a little hoyden living out a somewhat pleasant life in the little village of Bottom End with her mother who was the village school teacher. They lived in a neat little cottage, Sophy never had to wear second hand shoes and they had a cook and a piano. It was a good life. The only thing that perplexed Sophy was that her mother, Fanny Prescott, was supposedly a widow, but when Sophy attempted to check on her father who was a navy officer, she could never find him on the naval lists.

Just as Sophy was about to get the courage to inquire further about her father - a subject made even more pressing once village rumors began to abound that Sophy was a "bastard," her mother choked on a a chestnut and died. Within the next few days Sophy's life would forever be changed. It seems she was the illegitimate child of Lord Fairchild, in whose home her mother had worked 11 years previously. Although Sophy's mom had removed herself from Lord Fairchild's estate, after regretting her part in the relationship, Lord Fairchild continued to send funds to Fanny each month for Fanny's and Sophy's support.

Fanny had left instructions for Lord Fairchild to be contacted in the event of her death. For the first time in her life, Sophy realizes she has a living father.

This was not the story I was expecting of the poor illegitimate child facing a lifetime of rejection. It was about Sophy trying to find her way in life and was enjoyable and romantic. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a light interesting read.
