Eal to me even though I wished for character growth on her art I loved the second chance romance for Sonia s governess but Sonia s own relationship with Charles fell flat for me for some reason In either case this was a well written regency that had me turning the ages Originally ublished in 1965 and now available as an ebook this holds up very wellSonia von Hugel is hiding in the barn loft when first French soldiers and then Cossacks invade her family s castle and kill everyone they find Seeing no other choice she disguises herself as a boy and heads for her hated aunt s house Along the way she encounters adventurer Charles Vincent who convinces her that they can make their fortune laying cards Along with her governess miraculously not dead they accompany the Allies as Napoleon s forces are driven back But Vincent has secrets is he a spy and for whomThis doesn t have the shape of a modern romance novel although there is than one satisfying romance It is best enjoyed as well written historical fiction I read this several times back in the 70s when it first came out and loved it It s been sitting on my iPod in audio for years so I finally listened and it held up well The sudden reversal of the hero at the end is a little abrupt but apart from that it s still a charming sweet read The Adventurers by Jane Aiken Hodge Agora Books 1965 2019n this unusual Regency era story after witnessing her father s murder a servant s rape and their household s destruction at the hands of marauding soldiers Sonia her governess Elizabeth and her chance acuaintance Charles decide to join forces to appear as a family and gamble their way across 1813 Europe to England Giles a fourth leading character comes into their lives almost by chance bringing along with him three other key characters The lot includes two romances two unrelated long lost relationships and espionage Historical details of the era underpin the story This is a remarkably engaging and well written story easy to read with likeable credible consistent well developed characters Reality Hunger: A Manifesto. David Shields perhaps Jane Aiken Hodge at her best For many reasons the writing thelot *the subplots the characters the history I warmly recommend The AdventurersDisclosure *subplots the characters the history I warmly recommend The AdventurersDisclosure received a review copy of The Adventurers via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Started off very well got my attention right from the start I was so happy with the beginning and then things went downhill The middle dragged as our characters became camp followers moving from town to town during the end of the Napoleonic Wars Not much happened End was rushed and very Learner Strategies in Language Learning predictable A fun book that loosely fits into my collection of Austeniana since it is set in the same Regency world It is at heart a novel of manners whether the characters are in Chatillon threatened by a mob or in a carriage bouncing along a rutted road through enemy lines the emphasis is on conversation and correct behavior rather than action Even the first violent scene that hooks you into the story is set up to emphasize Sonja s feelings and relationships It is told from a rather unusualerspective the main characters are not Austen s English Dangerously Placed people look.
