Set during a period of revolution and turmoil, Mistress of My Fate is the first in a trilogy about Henrietta Lightfoot, a young woman who was abandoned as a baby and raised alongside her cousins, noble children of a lord and lady. At just sixteen years old, circumstance and a passionate love affair tear Henrietta away from everything she knows, leading to a new life where she fends for herself on the streets of eighteenth century London as a courtesan, gambler, and spirited intellect of the city.
