    Scandalous Historical Stories

    Simply put, this is an anthology of 13 historical stories that include everything from society, scandal, and romance such as the following.

    “At Will” by Leanna Renee Hieber – This story is about a young lady, Portia, that has been raised in theater. Because of her skill acting in both male and female roles she has become a prized character that is brought into society as a companion of one of societies more known males, Mr. Rothschild. It’s where she fits into the role that is the issue.

    “The Unladylike Education of Agatha Tremain” by Stephanie Burgis – Agatha has taken to running her father’s house while he engrosses himself in his studies. But her aunt doesn’t see this as proper training for a young lady and steps in to make Agatha a proper lady.

    “Nussbaum’s Golden Fortune” by M. K. Hobson – Nussbaum is a gentleman with bad luck. He owes some powerful people a lot of money. He goes to his old friend Oesterlische for help selling a magical map. But things go wrong when the map and Oesterlische’s fiancé are held for ransom.

    These historical based stories are about things that were not as acceptable then as they are now and how people stepped out of the normal rules to follow their hearts. I really liked the concept of the stories. My personal favorite was The Unladylike Education of Agatha Tremain. She has spunk and even though she is forced into following societies rules, she rises above them at the end.

    I will be honest, this is one book that I did have a hard time sticking with. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that the book was horrible, it was quiet good. It’s just one that I have been looking at for several months and just can’t finish. Please don’t let this statement ruin your opinion of the book.

    If you like historical stories and those where people find ways to rise above their lot in life, then you will enjoy this book.

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
