A Lady of Hidden Intent by Tracie Peterson July 1, 2009

Posted by Aubri in Historical, Romance, week 3.


I read A Lady of Hidden Intent by Tracie Peterson. My friend gave this book to me, and it was sitting on my shelf for a while, while I was finishing another book. I didn’t especially think this was going to be a great book or anything like that.
Man was I wrong.
This is one of the cutest and most romantic books I’ve read lately. It tells the story of a young woman, Catherine Newbury, who’s father has been falsely accused of transporting slaves in England, in the mid 1800’s. Now, hiding in America five years later, she works as a seamstress, with a peasant’s last name (Shay), to make money to get back and help her father in jail. But now her dresses are being coveted by women all over Philadelphia. And to top it all off Carter Danby,  a young man who visited her estate five years earlier while traveling around Europe, is starting to take interest in her. Does Carter actually know Catherine’s real identity? Or is just her imagination? And will Catherine have to sacrifice all hopes of a happy ending for her father?
I would strongly suggest this novel to teen girls who enjoy reading historical fiction, or are just in the mood for something with romance. And if you like this book enough, there are also the other novels in this series: Ladies of Liberty.

Oh my! Well thanks. 😀 I’ll just pick them up at the bookmobile (I go there often enough). Do you need my real name or…?
