READ & DOWNLOAD Ý The Elsingham Portrait Expecting a marriage proposal but ending up jilted Kathryn Hendrix wanders into an art gallery and becomes lost in the eyes of a portrait of a beautiful woman painted 200 hundred years before Suddenly she’s transported from 197. One of the literary devices I m always a complete sucker for is the character plucked from her own time and dropped clueless into another whether through straightforward time travel if there is such a thing or some kind of sorcery It s the latter in The Elsingham Portrait apparently and lots of fun I won this book through LibraryThing s Member Giveaways thank you to the publisher and LT Kathryn Hendrix is having a bad day Her boyfriend invited her to lunch and she has been sitting at their table alone for over an hour the rosy dreams she started out with of engagement rings and white weddings and an escape from her dreary dreary life have begun to whiff away into nothing Humiliation finally wins out over optimism and she catches a bus to go home to her dreary apartment only to see from the height of the bus just why her man never showed up he is otherwise engaged With someone much prettier and better dressed than Kathryn With some thoughts of trying to reach him she hurries off the bus but it s too late And it starts to rain And she left her umbrella somewhere And she had jumped through a few hoops to be granted the time off from her dreary underpaid job as a NYC librarian in order to meet Don Crushed unable to go back to work and face the coworkers who will certainly be expecting her to show up with a diamond she takes shelter in what turns out to be an art gallery The focal point of the gallery s collection is a stunning painting of a stunning woman in a golden gown Kathryn looks into the painted eyes and suddenly finds herself transported back to the time of the painting 1775 and into the woman in the painting the evil or much maligned Lady Nadine Elsingham Things do not go uphill from here Kathryn s struggles to find help from someone anyone are largely realistic Everyone around her believes that either Lady Nadine is up to something new or she s gone mad or possibly both and without any real proof of who she is and where and when she s from Kathryn begins to have suspicions of her own about her sanity She starts out by talking about the revolt about to happen in the Colonies but since it hasn t happened yet it doesn t exactly serve as proof Here the author missed a big step for me Kathryn asks the date and is told that it is April 18 1775 and I sueaked a little Listen my children and you shall hear Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere On the eighteenth of April in Seventy five Hardly a man is now alive Who remembers that famous day and year I guess Kathryn doesn t know her Longfellow though because instead of giving a similar sueak she begins talking about Lexington and Concord on April 19 Which meets with deep skepticism It s a tricky situation anything she says which can t be verified counts as raving anything which can be verified counts as witchcraft and either way she could end up slapped into Bedlam Her strange accent is considered a trick her lack of recognition for people around her is considered deceit her apparent change of demeanor from cold and cutting to warm and innocently bewildered is considered bait for some new trap she s setting She can t really win There are two things which please be warned may be spoiler y which bothered me a little First and less spoilerific is Kathryn s deep desire to return to her own time In a way I suppose it bucks expectations she has gone from being a somewhat plain and impoverished girl trapped in a somewhat dead end boring job who has just been jilted to being a gorgeous and wealthy woman waited on hand and foot and married to a thrillingly handsome man But she fights like mad to return home It isn t eual rights or sanitation or modernish medicine or frustration with 18th century clothing or even concern for the original owner of her current body that seems to drive her it s simply that she elsewhere and feels she needs to return It never seems to occur to her until very late in the book that it might be a fine thing to begin to settle where and when she is The second thing spoileriferous in two words How And Why Kathryn never learns the mechanism by which she was booted back two centuries and therefore neither does the reader Did it indeed have something to do with the evil witchy woman who apparently never left Nadine s side and the strange drug she would dose her charge with Was it a spell Or simply some bizarre Twilight Zone esue swapping out of two women discontented with their lots I would have loved to have seen at least a glimpse of Nadine s fate did she indeed swap with Kathryn and find herself dowdy and confused in a bewildering world of noise and speed or did Kathryn just vanish or collapse an empty shell and Nadine wisp out into the ether In fact I would love to see a companion book to The Elsingham Portrait telling her story free of the constraints of her day in the era of mini skirts and free love her strong personality would have a blast and free of the evil influence of the Donner woman she might turn out to be a decent human being In fact I would love to completely steal this whole idea Maybe someday after I ve written the other eleventy one ideas floating around in various states of completion

The Elsingham Portrait by Elizabeth Chater 1979 Ivy Books is a clean about this below time travel Georgian romance and can also be found in the third Elizabeth Chater Regency Romance Collection Elizabeth Chater is a favorite author of mine It looks like this was either Chater s first or second published novel 4 stars The Elsingham Portrait begins in 1974 I didn t enjoy the first half of chapter one very much I m not sure if it s because I prefer historical fiction or if something about the very beginning didn t sit well with me However it sets the stage for the rest of the story which I ended up enjoying thoroughly Kathryn Hendrix a librarian in 1974 New York has gone on an extended lunch break to meet her boyfriend at a restaurant and she s anticipating a proposal of marriage Not only does he not show up but in the process of escaping the restaurant she actually sees him with a beautiful woman Kathryn continues her retreat in embarrassment and it begins to rain heavily She seeks shelter in an unknown art gallery which houses a rather mesmerizing portrait After gazing at it for a while Kathryn is transported two hundred years in the past into the body of Nadine Elsingham in 1775 EnglandThe novel is somewhat angsty but it did not depress me I felt that I could see a light at the end of the tunnel This book just barely meets my criteria of a clean romance References to Nadine s horrible reputation as a faithless wife and one specific description of conjugal happiness could be considered objectionable especially for a teen I was okay with it I think the themes are too much for younger teens regardlessWhat I liked The conflict at the end is resolved rather cleverly I really enjoy clever resolutions and greatly admire the authors who pen them Chater managed to pen a time travel story that I like which is awesome My brain tends to go in circles when enjoying a time travel tale not a sensation that I always find fun What I didn t likeThere is a rather large loose end not tied up which while unnecessary for the completeness of the tale was disappointing to me as a reader While reading others reviews for this book I noticed I m not alone in this sentiment There were also two smaller issues which I would have liked to be addressed Hence my four star rating I d recommend this book to those who like clean RegencyGeorgian fictionlight romance I will be enjoying the Elizabeth Chater Regency Romance Collection 4 in the not too distant future I m sure
