    She was ripped from a Priviledged Life

    Helena Woulfe thought her lavish life on a seventeenth-century estate would never change. When her father is on the wrong side of Monmouth's rebellion, Helena must flee the safety she's always known, and enter a dangerous world as a traitor's daughter. Anita Seymour writes with a sure hand; her knowledge of the seventeenth-century, battles and customs, sweeps you into the era. Helena is a strong, yet vulnerable character you will be intrigued to spend time with. A great story!

    Effect of Monmouth's Rebellion on a Young Daughter

    The Rebel’s Daughter’s father and mother are Sir Jonathan and Lady Wulfe of Loxbeare House in Somerset. The Rebel is wealthy Protestant Sir Jonathan, who fears the consequences of James II’s Roman Catholic faith. For this reason he supports the Protestant Duke of Monmouth, illegitimate son of Charles II. Helena’s father, elder brother Aaron and her Uncle Edmund join Monmouth after he lands in England. Before Sir Jonathan leaves, he tells his wife, daughter and younger son Henry. “There’ll be no fighting.” He had laughed. “This isn’t a battle, it’s more of a protest under arms.” He was wrong. James II hated his nephew and was determined to ruthlessly crush the rebellion. At church the vicar reads a proclamation that declares Monmouth’s followers are rebels and traitors. Helena is frightened for her father, brother and uncle, and also wonders if any respectable man would want his son to marry a traitor’s daughter. Helena misses her father. She wants him “home again, to feel his laughter rolling in his chest as he held her against him, the scratch of his rough coat on her cheek and the smell of his skin in her senses.” But everything Sir Jonathan owns will be expropriated with tragic consequences. Anita Seymour is to be congratulated both for her research and for bringing the Monmouth rebellion and its tragic consequences to life. I could almost see the flashes of gunfire in the dark, experience Sir Jonathan’s despair when his men are slaughtered and his disgust when Monmouth flees. I empathised with Helena and Henry left with a mother who could not cope with Sir Jonathan’s absence from home and her fears for his safety. The author moves Rebel’s Daughter forward at a fast pace, but never at the cost of superb descriptions of Somerset, emotion and the brutality which follows Monmouth’s defeat. As I read I hoped for a satisfactory outcome for the Rebel’s Daughter, Henry, her father, uncle and elder brother. My congratulations to Ms. Seymour for writing a novel that gripped me from beginning to end.
