Good English families all have a house in the country with a deer park, a trout stream, and an army of gardeners. They should have a son and if it can be managed, he should be handsome. Cleverness isn't important. Daughters in limited quantities are fine so long as they are pretty. Bastards are inconvenient and best ignored. It's not a big problem, unless you are one. Unfortunately, Sophy is.
Sick of her outcast role, she escapes her father's house, only to fall from her horse during a spring storm. Injured, soaked, and shivering, she stumbles to a stranger's door - Tom, a blunt edged merchant from a family of vulgar upstarts. Mistaking Sophy for the genuine article, he takes her in. Sophy can't resist twisting the truth. Soon she's caught in her own snare - and it might just be a noose.

Pretty Good Story. Narration not so much.
This was quite a interesting story and starts at the beginning of Sophy's life at the age of about 8 I believe all they way through her early adult life through the happily ever after.
I really did enjoy the story quite a bit. I liked the the relationship Sophy and her step mother formed. It was good and not the usual evil stepmom story we all expect.
I did not enjoy the narration very much. Lucy Patterson's didn't really even try to do a male's voice. Very disappointing when a narrator doesn't try.

Such a wonderful story. Keeps one spellbound to the end. I have never heard a better narrator either.
