Overview

Henrietta was no one's enemy. She came to London from Boston in search of her father— a father thought lost to her until she discovered her aunt's treachery.

Now armed with her mother's marriage papers, she set sail for England to prove her identity and, unknowingly, to gain a fortune—and a love—she had never dreamed of.

Henrietta was too beautiful to ignore. Her wealthy father was enchanted with her. Her stepmother hated her on sight. And her stepbrother Cedric was an enigma.

Even though it was written in 1975 this book hits all the necessary attributes to be a part of the current regency romance craze. Clean fiction!. The added bonus is that the book is actually a historical fiction. The writer used the names, dates, and places to set her story. Most modern regency writers make everything up.

I’ve read all of Jane Aiken Hodge’s older books (there are several newer ones that I did not know that existed that I will have to read in the future.) I read “Rebel Heiress” last when I was eighteen. Re-reading it as an adult makes a world of difference in understanding some of the nuances of the story. In this book, Henrietta Marchmont’s American aunt has just passed away – leaving her with precious little while giving the bulk of her estate to the church. Henrietta find information about her father (Lord Marchmont) in England and is able to get passage on an English boat just ahead of the War of 1812. The story is what happens to Henrietta once she makes her way to England and, eventually, to her father’s home. Not everyone is what they seem to be. The good can turn out bad and the bad can turn out to be rather okay in the end. The story is true to Miss Aiken Hodge’s style with more of a Gothic twist than a Regency romance. I’m enjoying re-reading my way through this author’s back list. While some of the books seem rather dated and out of touch (with regards to our social values in the year 2017), when they were written (1974 in this case), they were very well done.
