Overview

Chronicles of a Gentlewoman is an action-packed thriller series set in an alternate history Victorian steampunk world. Her latest adventure takes Aldora Fiske half-way across the world.

Her loveless wedding of convenience approaching, gentlewoman Aldora Fiske is among the influential Europeans to accept handsome nobleman Cemal Yavuzade Bey's invitation to show off the Young Turks' Ottoman Empire and its secularist reforms.

After she alone escapes the devious plot to kidnap the foreign guests for leverage against the Great Powers of Europe, she's confronted with an Empire where women are given all the rights and respect of men, and a handsome Turkish nobleman who treats her like an equal. Will Aldora give up her old life and start anew in the Ottoman Empire?

Who Is Aldora Fiske?

Aldora Fiske is nothing if not proper, but the further she gets from London's social season the more daring she gets. Ever the gentlewoman, she takes pride in her ability to set things right.

    LibraryThing Giveaway Review:Aldora Fiske is visiting Constantin

    LibraryThing Giveaway Review:Aldora Fiske is visiting Constantinople with her young charge Penny. Where she inevitably meets the handsome Cemal Bey of The Committee of Union and Progress. Aldora finds herself strangely attracted to Cemal inspite of being engaged. Aldora didn't expect to find herself in the mist of political intrigue that spans many European countries. When key political factors and Aldora's young charge go missing without a trace. Aldora must find the clues necessary to resolve this mystery as well as her heart. Will Penny be found? Will key political factors be found as well? Will Aldora find freedom or restriction? What are Cemal Bey's motives? Your answers await you in Fine Young Turks.

    A very enjoyable tale. I loved Aldora because she doesn't do what is expected of her and thensome! I also think that Penny is younger version of Aldora. Cemal seemed to be too likable and friendly yet I still rooted for him any way. I will definitely read more of this author's work.
