‘So Fair a Lady’ is a wonderfully rich, historical drama and romance set in 1773 during the few years before the American revolution. This harrowing journey into history that author Amber Perry so skillfully pens, is dripping with intrigue and suspense, and carries a thoroughly satisfying unpredictability from one page to the next!
Robert Campbell has long been a friend of the King’s soldiers, but when a dreadful disease took his life, Robert’s daughter Eliza took solace that he’d left her a personal letter to read. The words she thought would bring comfort however, increased her turmoil instead. Discovering her father was a spy and supporter of the Sons of Liberty has Eliza reeling and feeling very confused, but she is determined to follow through with her father’s advice, and search for the truth. And it is something she must keep from the dashing British officer, Captain Samuel Martin, who is deeply in love with her.
When the handsome press owner, Thomas Watson, suddenly finds himself a marked man by the Redcoats, and that the beautiful Eliza and her sister Kitty are also in grave danger, they flee together through the night. Thomas is intent on protecting the women, but can he safeguard his own heart as well as his life? Captain Samuel Martin is obsessed with Eliza and will stop at nothing to save his woman from her supposed kidnapper. Nor will he give up on his vow to make Thomas pay, not only for taking his beloved but also for his crimes against the Crown.
The reader will fully appreciate the vivid and dramatic depiction of the history within ‘So Fair a Lady’. The characters suited the era to perfection and all were effortlessly brought to life, including a favorite secondary character of mine - the suavely charming patriot Nathaniel Smith with his spirited sense of humor, heroics, and charisma! This engaging story also demonstrates that by embracing and sharing God’s truths-- we too can make a difference in the world. Thank you, Amber Perry, for this immensely memorable and enjoyable trek back in time. Highly recommended!
