Here’s a lovely historical romance that will capture the attention of any Austen fan. I enjoyed reading about Miss Sophy Prescott whose life would change drastically in one single tragic moment. Born ‘tainted’, as she described herself, Sophy was literally taken out of one secret and frowned-upon life, to then be part of high society with a Viscount for a father.
Introduced into London society through a meticulously conceived plan, designed by her father’s aristocratic wife; it was of utmost importance that Sophy be sought out as well-to-do marriage material-despite the fact that she was considered a ‘bastard’…
Reminiscent of all that is Regency with a flair of Heyer, FAIRCHILD is a charming read of the past. At a time when class distinction meant everything and a girl’s life almost literally depended on her reputation, one can only imagine the heart flickering angst that one fleeting, inexcusable kiss could bring!
Torn between her love for Tom, an uncomplicated, strong and earnest man who cares for her deeply- and the will to please her father to earn his love and everyone’s acceptance, Sophy must comply to marry another…But first, she must come out and tell the truth about herself.
For me, Jaima Fixsen's regency novel was a quick read with interesting dialog and flowing development- and some hillarious moments as well! If you love Jane Austen, the Brontes, or even Downton Abbey, you will be in good company with FAIRCHILD. Lovely!
