Rebecca Beauvelley is a ruined woman. In a moment of girlish folly, she allowed a high-flying young man to take her up in his phaeton, not realizing that he was drunk. When he dropped the ribbons, she recovered them, but not in time to avoid disaster. The young man was killed in the accident. Rebecca survived, with a withered arm to remind her of the wages of folly, and a reputation in tatters. Against all expectation, her father has found someone, an elderly rogue, who will marry her. Rebeccas life seems set, and she resigned to it, when Altimere, a Fey, appears and uses his magic to show her two futures: In the first, she is abused and neglected as the dutiful wife; in the second, she is dressed and bejeweled like a princess. Rebecca chooses the second future and elopes with Altimere. Unfortunately, Altimere has an agenda of his own.--From publisher description. File Size: 3MB.
Rebecca chooses the second future and elopes with Altimere. She doesn't DO things, they just happen to her. Rebecca's life Duainfey set, and she resigned to it. She's about to be married to some old man who is harsh and lives up in the cold north and seems to care only for money and appearancesbut she's whisked ou I am a huge fan of Lee and Miller.
He can't quite stop Caroline from making disparaging remarks, but he tries. What happened to the trapped Rangers? I'd like to first state that it seems that many of Duainfey negative reviews come from people who have first read and enjoyed the Liaden Universe by Lee and Miller, and then come to these books expecting more of the same.
Lee and Miller just leave everything, including the characters, bland and vague. the point-of-view kept skipping, and that Duainfey the story even less engaging.
The dust jacket for hard covers may not be included. I wasn't pulled along by wanting to know what happened to the main character. It was here that one could see that the book is written by two people, these parts Duainfey very different. I'd give this book negative stars if I could.
In the same way, I don't feel comfortable recommending A Clockwork Orange to younger readers.
Rebecca Beauvelley is a ruined woman.
In order for her younger sister to make a good marriage, Rebecca first must be wed.
