In the spring of 1788, Renn Arelia Sheridan stares up at a portrait of the First Duchess of Chippenham, and the painting clearly shows an emerald brooch on her gown. Renn Arelia's hand slips into her pocket fingering the brooch her deceased mother gave her. Her nape prickles with caution. This piece is what they sought when they ransacked her parent's manor and forced her to London, betrothing her to marry a French Marques. The proverbial straw, the significance of her mother's locket, embroils Renn Arelia. She escapes the ancestral estate, hoping the heirloom is a blessing and not a curse. Her quest is a teaching position at an orphanage in Gravesend. Spiraling from one disaster to the next, she deceitfully gains passage aboard a ship and tumbles into the circle of a devil captain, forever changing the course of her life. She has no idea the locket will define her as though it is a certificate of birth.

Review:

Benson's 'Devil's Grace' an intriguing debut novel, Ray Walsh review, Lansing (Michigan) State Journal.
"Devil's Grace" by author Karen Dean Benson is a compelling historical romance that's subtitled "Renn Arelia's Story". It's anintriguing debut novel, the first in her "Ladies of Mischief" series, set in the late 1700s in England and Spain.
The well-designed 290-page trade paperback showcases18-year-old, beautiful Renn Arelia Sheridan, who's orphaned when her parents drown in a carriage accident. She enjoys teaching young children, but her new guardians, a duke and duchess, have other ideas. They tell her that her parents, who ran prosperous horse-breeding stables, left her nothing.
The pair have searched Renn's room and the entire manor, looking for a valuable emerald locket. They put the location up for sale and dismiss the staff, forcing Renn to go with them to the ancestral Chippenham estate in London. They have other plans for her, including an arranged marriage to a wealthy, obnoxious French marquis. When strong-willed Renn rebuffs the betrothal, she gets into real trouble; she quickly makes her escape into the dark night. She's almost run over by a carriage and is picked up by handsome Sebastian Navarre, Spanish Captain of "The Wind Devil"........
...........Benson's terrific tale is full of well-developed characters, carefully researched locales and settings, believable dialogue, dangerous threats and a brooding air of tension.
Her second volume in the series, "Mission Song - Chenoa's Story" is a stand-alone novel set in the 1830s. It follows the journey of a young woman who escapes the suffocating restrictions of a Boston convent,returning to Carmel, Alta California, where she was born.
............"Mulberry Bend - Aisling's Story", the third entry in the series, set in the 1860s, has numerous surprises as well; it's scheduled for release later this summer. (Nov. 22, 1016). "
Ray Walsh, owner of East Lansing's Curious Book Shop, has reviewed books by Michigan authors regularly since 1987.
