Set in 17th century England, this marvelous tale is about Mistress Clorinda, a tempestuous stable brat born out of wedlock. It's a story of rebellion, dark secrets and great love. At a young age Mistress Clorinda inspires her father, Sir Jeoffry Wildairs to publicly acknowledge her. She grows to be a strong, defiant, aggressive woman of great beauty, who triumphs over all. She survives her mother's attempt to murder her, her nurses neglect, and her own checkered past, to become, at last, a lady of quality.

Unique, uplifting, enchanting.
Clorinda's gradual transformation is believable and beautiful.
The style was rather stilted and almost robotic at parts and so put me off at the start that I almost did not persist. However, as my ear tuned to it, it became less obtrusive as the interest of the story commanded more interest,
This novel had a pace throughout which holds your interest and the plot did not take some of the more obvious directions it could have, much to my eventual delight.
