I love Virginia Henley's books! Somehow I missed this novella which was first published as part of an anthology. I'm sorry I did, because I've seldom found a more heartwarming story! Noel and Joy fall in love despite the odds against it, against a richly woven setting of the end of the Cromwellian era and the restoration of the Stuart monarchy in England.

I really enjoyed this story but at one point in the novella--thought the girl sounded "calculating" she decided she'd had enough of being a lower class
person with no choices and DECIDED to lure the "Master" into bed to get power/money and to be able to make choices. OF course she fell in love with him
in the process BUT her original thinking made me less attracted to this heroine. She came from an upper class family but father was killed in Reformation and when Charles became King--the property was not given back to the daughter of the original owner who'd given his life in fighting for Charles!

The child (called wild with controlling ways and tantrums) did have real emotional problems but INSTANTLY with almost NO exceptions, she turned around after
meeting this new governess. TO me after two daughters and one granddaughter (and knowing people) this was just not right. No child would have completely
changed all her bad habits because of good treatment. She should have had some slip ups!

I thought I'd bought a book but it was very short and I felt like they just STOPPED---the villain of the piece was thrown out of their house BUT
nothing was done by hero to avenge the villain's actions. Just not true to life!

I enjoyed the story but there were a few 'bumps". I would say all in all it was fun reading if you SUSPEND DISBELIEF.

Typical of Virginia Henley's heroines, Joy Ashton is a spunky spitfire of a girl in 17th Century England. She may have lost her ancestral home but not her backbone. No one does sweeping historical romances the way Ms. Henley does. I highly recommend this novella.

All of Virginia Henley's books are great. I've read all of her books (I think) and every one of them is just as good as the last one I read. PLEASE WRITE FASTER, VIRGINIA!!!

Ms. Henley is a favorite author. She captures the settings of the story and people of the time to perfection. History, romance, and a great story line all wrapped up in each book.
