Effie has fallen in love with the handsome Mr. Benedict Ashbrooke in a most awkward way. There’s just one problem: Effie is a maid, and a maid can’t marry a gentleman. It seems Effie is out of luck until she stumbles upon the fairy kingdom of Lord Blackthorn, who is desperate to help her win Mr Ashbrooke’s heart. All she asks in return is that Effie sew ten thousand stitches on her favorite jacket.

Effie has heard rumors about what happens to those who take magic deals. But life as a servant in Hartfield is so horrific that she is willing to risk even her immortal soul for a chance at something better. You now have a hundred days and ten thousand points to get Mr. Ashbrooke to fall in love and propose to you… if Lord Blackthorn doesn’t accidentally mix things up. Because Effie’s greatest obstacle may be Lord Blackthorn’s overwhelmingly good intentions.

Ten Thousand Stitches book, an enchanting fairy tale set in Olivia Atwater’s magical version of Regency England, is “an enchanting, romantic romp” with touches of Cinderella and plenty of heart.

Ten Thousand Stitches is Book 2 in the Regency Faerie Tales series and my favorite historical novel series, written by one of my favorite independent authors…Olivia Atwater. This lady single-handedly earned my appreciation for the genre with Half a Soul, her series debut earlier this year, and thanks to her, I’ve even come to appreciate a few other historical novelists in the past few months.

Honestly, I’ve always disliked the verbiage of centuries, so reading an entire novel was a chore for me. However, Olivia’s approach is different… and while her stories use enough time language to set the mood, she never overdoes it. She’s found that balance… where she’s present enough that I don’t find it too modern… and it doesn’t distract me either.

In this story we follow Euphemia “Effie” Reeves. A maid at the Ashbrooke mansion who unhappily falls in love with Benedict, a member of the family she serves.

Despite knowing the cautionary tales of the fair folk, when she meets a fairy named Lord Blackthorn who is desperate to help her win Benedict’s heart, her dissatisfaction with her position causes her to risk accepting his offer. Effie is given one hundred and one days and ten thousand points… for Benedict to propose to her with Lord Blackthorn’s help, or for her to vow to become even more of her bondage than she already is, but the Fae Lord’s overwhelmingly good intentions tend to to become bad.

One of the most wonderful things about Olivia’s storytelling is the vast amount of knowledge, through research or experience, that she lovingly writes on every page. While it’s truly fantastic, it also brings with it a lot of grainy texture…without shying away from the harsher realities of the time…the way people dealt with the challenges of their day-to-day lives. She doesn’t feel the need to make ugly truths look pretty and appetizing, instead letting the reader see each layer for what it really is. And while she likes to take the veil off a bit, she also writes the main characters with a lot of heart…the way they see the good in others around them is quite beautiful.

I love that he isn’t afraid to address privilege in his worlds and how it’s often exercised with no regard for those who don’t have it. I also love the uncompromising way he paints his characters, he doesn’t always have to make them into something new… and instead sometimes lets them learn to be happy with who they are.

Her world building is spectacular, as is always the way her fairy magic works. The origin of fairy fabrics is absolutely whimsical. Born of emotions and qualities, the things created from them tend to evoke certain reactions in those around them. Another of my favorite elements he uses is the way the fairies tend to belong to their realms…rather than the other way around…and the resulting sentience they imbue them with.

Effie is adorable. She’s full of fire, even if she tries to hide it… tries to do her best, sometimes living up to ridiculously unreasonable expectations. She cares deeply about those around her and doesn’t see herself as simply allowing injustice, even though sometimes it’s not in her best interest to speak out.
