“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”

So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s witty comedy of manners–one of the most popular novels of all time–that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues. Renowned literary critic and historian George Saintsbury in 1894 declared it the “most perfect, the most characteristic, the most eminently quintessential of its author’s works,” and Eudora Welty in the twntieth century described it as “irresistible and as nearly flawless as any fiction could be.”

5Mistress of My Fate by Hallie Rebenhold is Book One of the Confessions of Henrietta Lightfoot. Rebenhold is an authority on eighteenth-century British social history and has written an attention grabbing entertaining read. I was hooked from page one which is what I desire in my reads.

Henrietta Lightfoot is an ignored adopted niece of an Earl and Countess. She believes she is destined to lead a quiet life of a companion for her obnoxiously spoiled cousin, Lady Catherine. Fate intervened and sent Henrietta spinning away from the protected country life into one of surviving by her wits. Every page promises a desire to read more! Now I can hardly wait for the next book as I will be line to check it out!
