OVERVIEW: There are two novellas in this collection: Of Fortune’s Reversal and The Maid and The Footman (which were both published separately). These two stories portray the same events from two different perspectives with four main characters being central to both stories – Kitty Bennet, General Sir Richard Fitzwilliam, a maid by the name Annie Reynolds, and a footman/retired Sergeant named Henry Wilson.
Of Fortune’s Reversal, which highlights the events from Kitty Bennet’s and General Fitzwilliam’s perspectives, is 91 pages in length. The Maid and The Footman, which feature Annie Reynolds’ and Henry Wilson’s experiences during the same events, is 191 pages in length.
Since there are two novella-ish length stories in this collection, I thought I’d break down my review to look at them both separately and as a whole.
