Winning the Gentleman.
A Regency tale for horse lovers. Set in 1817 when circuses were still small traveling shows, men home from war were already showing off their equestrian skills as entertainment, although it was not yet a sport. The author's research found that there was at least one woman jockey during this period of rapid change, and she works this fact into a facsinting narrative. Aaron Whitworth needs to prove his status as a gentleman. In a bind, he hires a temporary jockey from a travling circus to handle his racehorses. Sophia Fitzroy fights for her right to do the work she was hired for, even though men don't often take her seriously. Exceptions to the rules of society are found in every age. But do such experiments lead to happiness? Bethany House. 2021. Paper. NEW. $12.00
