1- some situations that were presented were not deep enough. For instance, Amanda was raised as nobility, but upon accidentally seeing the downtrodden in a bad part of town, she changes he mind about her station and decides to print flyers to bring attention to their plight. A few chapters before, she dumped a friend who was not of her same class just to please her father.
Another example of this is when the hero, Nathaniel, who is doubling as a ringleader for liberty, casually asks his groom to deliver some communication that was marked with his secret seal. Previous to this, his groom had no idea of Nathaniel's political secrecy. A good undercover would never have dropped his correspondence to whomever! What if his groom was a bad guy!?
2- I felt the ideas and beliefs of the main characters were repeated. (Tiresome!)
3- Too political for me. If I want to read a romance, I want romance, not a romantic substory hidden inside of political intrigue; the other surrounding story should be 2nd in importance.
4- I disagreed with the choices of the heroine. She went along with what the villain asked her to do; meet with him, play his game in the fear of a friend coming to harm. i prefer a heroine who uses sly tricks of her own.
True, I didn't finish the read, maybe the story would've gotten better. I was just disappointed that 1/2vway through I was getting tired of repeated reasoning and poor choices of the heroine.
NOT A SPOILER:
BAH. Listen to me nitpick. If you want a good historical romance more along the lines of North and South than Pride and Prejudice, this is an excellent book to pick up! In spite of my criticisms, I had a hard time putting it down, and enjoyed both the romance and the excitement of the deeply significant hunt for equality in early 19th century Britain. Definitely worth reading!
I also really appreciated some of the struggles our heroine faces, and I love how they are ... not solved, but addressed and worked through.
This book will stay with me for a while. Thanks for the lesson and the fun, Jen Johnson!
I really loved this book, I laughed so much through it.
Wonderful characters, likeable and funny.
Research was excellent.
I can't think what to say it was good.
Just buy it and read for yourself
As a child, I’ve always held a sick fascination for the guillotine, and since I needed a new book to write, I began researching the time when the guillotine was most frequently used—the French revolution.
I began learning more about the “haves” and “have nots.” Those with an abundance of material wealth v. those who struggle to put together a meal for their families. I was especially touched and sympathetic toward the mothers who couldn’t feed their children at the time.
It was then that I started looking about my fancy house and thought, “What can I do to help impoverished people in my age?
With the help of my husband, we sold our place and moved to simple community in the country. We patched together enough cash to buy a smaller home so that we wouldn’t have a mortgage. This would mean that we'd have more time to volunteer at church, our community, and to pursue the vocations we felt the Lord wanted us to lead. Far too much about the reader!! But this gives context, so thanks for bearing with me!
Towards the end of The Nobleman’s Daughter, Lord Daniel said a line of dialogue that spoke to my heart directly. “When I see others suffering, without food or a place to live, I feel an obligation to help them. How can I live like I do, when my very lifestyle and the laws which I help create and uphold keep men in an impoverished state, unable to rise or make anything for themselves?” I actually grabbed a highlighter and marked the passage. I agree with his sentiments completely. It’s also the point in the book when Lady Amanda saw Lord Nathaniel’s true heart—what drives him as a human being. This is the crux of the book. To fight for freedom to share with those who have fewer luxuries.
I love the purity of the main characters, all the tingling sensations I experienced from their longing looks and innocent touches. Written with finesse and beauty! I loved the selflessness and bravery of Charlie, and I appreciated the author’s attention to the details in dress, customs, and politics of the time.
For me, the frosting on the cake was a quote from Percy Bysshe Shelley’s The Mask of Anarchy. Two years ago when I read that poem, I marked it up and told my husband how magnificent it was. I remember thinking that I wanted to learn more about the massacre at Peterloo, and Jen Geigle Jonson gave me my answer in a most talented way. This story is sweet, realistic, and a much-needed reminder that we all should give more to those who have less—even better if we do it with a hidden identity.

My first of this author but definitely wont be my last.
This story kept me up late & had me almost missing work, its that good.
The fact that is has some basis of truth makes it even more amazing.
