This audiobook is both a love letter to romance novels set in Regency England and a historical analysis of the women who lived during that time. Narrator Rengin Altay's amiable performance creates an approachable listen as she details women that most of history has forgotten. Many Regency romance novels feature white women with wealth, and several sections of this work discuss women such as these who managed to live more independently. Also included are chapters on women who go beyond the popular perception of Regency heroines, including lesbian and Jewish women, women of color, and scientists. Historical romance listeners, especially fans of Jane Austen, will find the many brief biographies fascinating. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
