Publisher's Summary

In 1900s London, Francine is a ladies' maid, cast off without a character. But she is anything but a victim. Francine has a mission, to help other women survive their prescribed fates, and when she meets another cast-off - poor starving governess Miss Philpot - she transforms her into an independent woman. If she finds romance, so much the better....

Like in A Woman of Substance, we meet a woman who will not accept the fate designed for her. And moreover, she will train others to do the same.

Two Previous Released Stories

I enjoy the stories by Alicia Cameron and the readers do a good job of having distinct vocalizations, mostly. That said the character's behaviors are completely unrealistic for the time period. The main point of this review is that this release combines Francine with Miss Philpott and the Fascinating Mathilde, both of which are enjoyable but not worth purchasing a second time.

Francine and Francine 2 (Miss Philpott and...

Yes this is Francine 1 and 2 (Miss Philpot and the Fascination Matilde) combined, I do not understand, why they keep selling them separately. Francice and the Winter's gift is not included and not worth it.

Yes it is expensive for the short running time, I waited for a member offer to pay a little less than a credit, but I have to admit I really enjoyed the story and did not regret the purchase. A bit different.
