Review:Courtney Dark says:
And so we get to see Helena at last! Well, it's not really at last, considering it's only been three chapters...but you know what I mean!

I really, really liked Helena's character! I haven't read many stories - fanfiction or otherwise - set during this time period, but of those I have read, I've noticed that many authors fall into this trap of making their female character too, well, pathetic, or too bold and out-there. You definitely haven't fallen into this trap. It is clear that she is Rowena's daughter, as she is obviously intelligent, and I can already tell that she has this depth to her that is often hard to achieve.

I really liked the descriptions of the town, because I've always found this time period fascinating, and it was just so fun to read about!

I wonder how Venn and Helena's meeting will go? I guess I'll have to wait to find out!

Author's Response: Helena was so interesting to work with. She's very mysterious and I feel like in canon we only get a small taste of the woman she is. I actually considered the exact issue you're describing in creating her and tried to give her the best of both worlds. She respects her parents and obligations as she should, but she also isn't afraid to speak up and be herself so that her voice becomes part of the process.

I'm happy you liked reading about her adventures in the town, too. Naturally, I thought Helena would love her books :)

Thanks for your sweet review!
