A Christmas Regency short story -

The chance Alethea had waited for all her life arrived at Christmas. The whole household turned out in best uniforms to welcome the Marquess and Marchioness of Holmwood and their son, the Earl of Payton to Harper Hall. But Alethea was out of uniform for the first time since entering service. She stood proudly in one of Lady Johanna’s cast-off mourning dresses, deliciously bareheaded. No cap, kerchief or apron for Alethea today!

Editorial Reviews

L Miller
I'm a sucker for regency romances, dating back to my first reading over 50 years ago. In the books I've read since, plot generally involves people of the same class--a lord meets a lady he knew as a child and finds himself unnerved by the beauty she has become; a lady down on her luck goes into service as a housekeeper, companion, etc. and attracts the attentions of a lord. This story is one of the few tales which deals with romances in the servants hall. It's a lovely departure, handled nicely.
