Overview

The Changeling Bride by Lisa Cach

Modern-day Elle is tired of being single and poor. When a strange old woman gives her a coupon for a free husband, she half-jokingly redeems it, and finds herself swept back in time and into the life of Eleanor Moore, a wealthy heiress engaged to the impoverished Earl of Allsbrook. She quickly learns the truth of the old adage that you should be careful what you wish for… you just might get it.

First published by Dorchester Publishing, in 1999.

The Changeling Bride¿ takes a modern woman and puts her in the midst of a century long past. This is a delightful concept for me, as a regular romance novel reader. After all, what are we doing when we read stories of this genre if not quietly longing for a different type of world, and putting ourselves in the place of the heroine? This book uses a traditional romance format and twists it - using a bit of magic ¿ so that the fantasy becomes a bit more plausible. Ms. Cach also addresses several things in the plot that are conspicuously absent from other historical romance novels I have read, yet have always wondered about in the back of my mind. Namely, the issue of birth control, type of food available, and those embarrassing but necessary bodily functions. She attacks each subject with a touch of humor as well as practicality that makes for an interesting and entertaining tale. The best thing about the book, however, is the heroine herself. Because she is from our day and age, one can relate to her with ease. She is not a tiny-waisted and naive virgin, but a robust, healthy and somewhat cynical woman of modern America. We all dream about another day and age, but what would we do if we were truly given the `opportunity¿ to experience it? ¿The Changeling Bride¿ offers us a glimpse into what the realities of the 1700¿s were, while maintaining the romantic aura necessary for a truly good read. I highly recommend this book and look forward to other titles by Ms. Cach.

This story of a modern woman from the Northwest struggling to make sense of life and love in Georgian England is witty and entertaining from start to finish. The heroine¿s predicament (thanks to some misguided but well-intentioned fairies) results in a temporal culture clash with very amusing results. The author thoroughly explores many of the challenges a modern woman would face when placed in such a situation. One of the great strengths of the book is the heroine Elle, who must somehow try to fit her independent, modern worldview into the realities of a more tradition-bound society while staying faithful to her true self. I found her a wonderful character that I could easily relate to. While Ms. Cach plays lightly with some of the ¿historical romance¿ conventions, the romance that develops between the two main characters is both genuine and passionate.

The author did a good job in her research of details pertaining to the 1790's. My only complaint was that the book wrapped up too quickly. I wish she would have delved more into the time travel aspect (from past to present). I'd recommend this book for a fun weekend read.

Im not much for time travel romance but this was very good. The story flowed very well, it progressed at an even pace. The characters were well rounded and distinctive, and the ending was wonderful. I felt very satisfied after I finished with this story.
