Rebecca Stubbs: The Vicar’s Daughter


In the novel Rebecca Stubbs: The Vicar’s Daughter, Hannah Buckland crafts the Victorian-era tale of Rebecca Stubbs. Rebecca is the daughter of a kind vicar, but after a fever breaks out in her rural Kent village, her life drastically changes, and she eventually becomes a housemaid at Barton Manor. The book shows Rebecca’s faith and courageous spirit as she weathers – and overcomes – life’s journeys. It is a lovely coming-of-age story. Buckland writes well, and her use of first person draws the reader into Rebecca’s relatable perspective. Buckland includes enchanting description and detail in her writing, and I felt like I was transported back to 1857 England.
