Jane Aiken Hodge was born in Massachusetts but moved with her family to East Sussex in Britain when she was three years ol. She died in 2009, aged ninety-two. Also By Jane Aiken Hodge. Watch the Wall, My Darling.

Jane Aiken Hodge was born in Massachusetts but moved with her family to East Sussex in Britain when she was three years old. After reading English in Somerville College, Oxford, she moved to the US to undertake a second degree at Radcliffe College. While she was there, she spent time as a civil servant and worked for Time Magazine before returning to the UK to focus on her career as a novelist. In 1972, she became a British citizen. She is the daughter of the Pulitzer prize-winning poet, Conrad Aiken.

Jane Aiken Hodge (December 4, 1917 – June 17, 2009) was an American-born British writer. Born near Cambridge, Massachusetts, the second child of Pulitzer prize-winning poet Conrad Aiken and his first wife, the writer Jessie McDonald. Jane Hodge was 3 years old when her family moved to Great Britain, settling in Rye, East Sussex where her younger sister, Joan, who would become a novelist and a children's writer, was born. Their parents' marriage was dissolved in 1929.

Jane Aiken Hodge was born in the US. Hodge does a great job capturing the uncertainties of living in a war zone. Some of the family twists, turns, and resolutions are a bit unrealistic, but no more so than other stories. It is a great portrayal of people living on their wits and thinking on their feet with lots of personal growth. The people are well fleshed out, non of the cardboard H and h, I genuinely liked them all, even when I wanted to smack them at times. 2 people found this helpful.

Jane Aiken Hodge was born in the USA, brought up in the UK and read English at Oxford. She received a master's degree from Radcliffe College, Harvard University. Before her books became her living she worked as a civil servant, journalist, publishers' reader and a reviewer. She has written lives of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer as well as a book about women in the Regency period, Passion and Principle. But her main output has been over twenty historical novels set in the eighteenth century, including Polonaise, The Lost Garden, and Savannah Purchase, the beloved third volume of a trilogy set during and after the American War of Independence. More recently she has written novels for Severn House Publishers. She enjoys the borderland between mystery and novel, is pleased to be classed as a feminist writer, and is glad that there is neither a glass ceiling nor a retiring age in the writers' world. She was the daughter of Conrad Aiken and sister of Joan Aiken.

I first read this when I was a teen.
I loved it then, and love it 40 years later.
The history is seamlessly worked in to the story.
Hodge does a great job capturing the uncertainties of living in a war zone.
Some of the family twists, turns, and resolutions are a bit unrealistic, but no more so than other stories.
It is a great portrayal of people living on their wits and thinking on their feet with lots of personal growth.
The people are well fleshed out, non of the cardboard H and h, I genuinely liked them all, even when I wanted to smack them at times.
I have liked most of Hodges work, this remains my favorite.

Retreating French troops in the Napoleonic wars ravage a Baron's estate, and only his daughter, Sonia, who has hidden herself in the hayloft, survives. She joins a young man with a mysterious past, resolving to earn their living playing whist with soldiers. Together with Sonia's former governess, they follow the troops towards Paris. Spies, battles, and ghosts of their pasts foil their plans along the way. This is a delightful historical romance. I can't vouch for the history, but the characters are wonderful and the plot runs nicely, beginning to end.

This book and 'Bride of Dreams' are my two favourite Hodge books so far (I haven't read them all yet!). I only recently discovered this author and as a Georgette Heyer fan I really enjoy Hodge too. This book is particularly good because it doesn't fall into the trap of putting historical details before story (as many of Hodge's books do). It has a good plot, great characters (including an unusually young hero who is about 22 I think), and, as the title suggests, a lot of adventure. The romance is nice but not sickly. A very enjoyable book.
