It is 1649 Charles I has been beheaded Cromwell is running the country and a new law targeting unwed mothers and lewd women has been passed A law that presumes that anyone who conceals the death of her illegitimate child is guilty of murder When a dead infant is found buried behind the Smithfield slaughterhouse all Accidents of Providence was kindly provided to me by Netgalley for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt15 starsAccidents of Providence is a historical fiction novel which tells the story of Rachel Lockyer s arrest after she is accused of killing a newborn child that was found buried in the woods The novel started off a little dry and the storyline wasn t in the least bit interesting but I suppose that should be expected with historical fiction There was a bit of a mystery going on so that helped make it intriguing The investigator in charge of the case goes through deposing the witnesses involved for the first few chapters and then it delves into the romance of Rachel and William Walwyn This was my major problem with the book this supposed remarkable love story between these two was extremely lacking William was a married man with FOURTEEN children and Rachel was an unmarried woman but other than William caring for Rachel out of simple obligation and his continued desire to sleep with her I couldn t see the love The overall writing style of the novel was very hard to read in large uantities I found myself continuously having to take breaks from it because my brain was having trouble comprehending The writing style is very 16th Century England and isn t modernized like many historical fiction novels Some of the lines were just plain strange Fixing her attention on the horizon of his face she distracted herself by trying to name all the sounds creatures make when they are in trouble She ran the noises around in her head She wished she too could roar and whistle and screech and bleat and rattle and all those other noises a woman could not make unless she wanted the world to declare her an animal a creature of unreason a dreamer of false dreams I m sorry what By the end That subtle mystery that kept me reading Well suffice it to say it didn t exist The revelation of what happened to the child was exactly what was expected and it was sad but I was definitely expecting Then the author decides to throw a curve ball that was just strange and by the end it felt like everything had come full circle and there was absolutely no point to anything Very disappointed Fire and Desire unwed mothers and lewd women has been passed A law
