Torn between loyalties to family and flag, one young woman is about to discover that her most important allegiance is to her heart.
It is 1776, and all along the eastern seaboard the American struggle for independence rages. But in the British-held southern port of Mobile, Alabama, the conflict brewing is much quieter--though no less deadly.
Lyse Lanier may be largely French in heritage, but she spends most of her time in the company of the ebullient daughter of the British commander of Mobile. When a charming young Spanish merchant docks in town, Lyse is immediately struck by his easy wit and flair for the dramatic. But is he truly who he makes himself out to be? Spies abound, and Spain has yet to choose a side in the American conflict. Is Lyse simply an easy mark for Rafael Gonzalez to exploit? Or are his overtures of love as genuine as Spanish gold?
With spectacular detail that brings the cultural gumbo of the Colonial Gulf Coast alive, Beth White invites you to step into a world of intrigue and espionage from a little-known slice of the American Revolutionary War.
Beth, the author, is a music teacher by-day and I think that lends itself over into her writing as it amusingly poetical at times with a fine rhythm. As a genealogist, I’ve found that the American Revolutionary War is my favorite war-time to research and study. Also separately I’m a bit fond of the Creole sector of Louisiana as my daddy was born there and some ancestors lived there as well. So adding these things together to create a novel intrigues me from the start. Coming into read The Creole Princess after having enjoyed The Pelican Bride last year from new-to-me author Beth White was with an eager emotion.
As a reader if you’re looking for some 1776 history with a bit of spunk then you’ve definitely found yourself a title to add to your to-be-read pile.
