This is an extremely well written, thoroughly believable book that, unlike the vast majority of period romances, is not based on sex between muscular alpha males and impossibly beautiful heroines. It is what I would call a classy book. The characterisation is excellent; one comes to understand and even to sympathise with minor characters that in less well crafted books would be roughly drawn in as 'baddies'. I won't talk about the plot because it has already been detailed (to my mind at excessive length) by a previous reviewer who was then mean spirited enough to award a mere 3 stars. Rubbish! This is probably the best book of its genre that I have read in ages. I am a writer myself (not under this name, so don't think I am puffing off my own books) and I take my hat off to Jaima Fixsen. Someone mentioned Georgette Heyer. I am a great fan of Heyer, I have all her books and they are enormous fun, but to my mind this is in a different, and slightly higher, class.

This was on offer to read for free so I thought I would try it. I didn't expect a great deal. I try to read a lot of free ebooks and often can't get past the first few pages. I was surprised by this book though, it was very well written and charming - with a plot that was believable. I will be looking out for more books by Jaima Fixsen.

Enjoyed the characters and the twist in the story. An easy read with some in sight into the plight of illegitimate children of the aristocracy at that time. Snobbery and hypocrisy were the order of the day. A happy ending as expected. Suitable for all ages.

I thoroughly enjoyed this. A good story reminiscent but not derivative of a Georgette Heyer novel. Interesting characters, well pa ed and well written. I look forward to reading more by this author.

I admit that I had low expectations for this book but once you get over some of the explanations of Tom's youth it is really well written and I quite enjoyed it.

Very interesting exploration of the relationship between the bastard daughter and the other members of the family. Not the usual regency romance. Not cloying.

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.
