Présentation de l'éditeur

When her father is falsely imprisoned for slave trading, Catherine Newbury finds her English world turned upside down. Whisked away with trusted servants to America, she is forced to disguise her past and create a completely new life. Taking on a servant's last name, Catherine becomes an accomplished seamstress whose dress designs are sought throughout Philadelphia.
Carter Danby, an architect who was touring England, met Catherine at a party in her English home the very night she was forced to flee. Five years later they meet again when his sister and mother come for a design consultation. Carter is sure he's met the dark-haired beauty before, but can't quite place her....
Drawn to Catherine, yet realizing she is hiding a painful past, Carter longs to create a future together with her. Catherine desires above all else to see her father set free--even at the cost of her own dreams. Will love be the sacrifice?

Book Description

He believes them to be strangers... The door opened suddenly, and there she was. Carter forgot what he was saying and simply stared at the vision before him. Hang his imagination; this woman was far more intriguing in the flesh...

Yet she knows the truth... Catherine found she couldn't look away, he was so very handsome. His face had a rather rugged look, perhaps more so than she'd noticed five years ago. How strange that he'd never married...

Now that their paths have crossed again, can Catherine break free from the past to embrace the chance for love?

A life of privilege becomes only a distant memory when Catherine Newbury's father is falsely imprisoned and she is whisked away from her home in England to America. Forced to disguise her past and create a completely new life, Catherine takes on a servant's last name and carves out a tenuous future for herself as a seamstress. Soon her dress designs are sought throughout Philadelphia.

When the dashing Carter Danby accompanies his mother and sister for a design consultation, Catherine suddenly encounters her past face-to-face. Is Carter's avid interest in her genuine...or does he, as she suspects, recognize her as the young lady he met while touring England? She cannot deny the attraction, but admitting her true identity may jeopardize her father's only hope for freedom. Will Catherine be forced to sacrifice her dreams of love?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderfully sweet romance 27 mars 2008
Par L. Ann - Publié sur
Catherine Newbury and her father are introduced to a charming young American, Carter Danby, at a ball they host at their home in England. Later that night, after all the guests have left and the house has gone to bed, Catherine over hears her father in conversation with his partner. Their shipping buisness has been discovered to have been shipping slaves and the (crooked) partner is in the process of fleeing the country. After he leaves, Catherine confronts her father and they decide for her to leave England as well.

Five years later, in Philadelphia, Carter Danby accompanies his mother and sister to the dressmakers. The fashion designer, Catherine Shay, strikes a familiar chord with him, but he can not place when and where he has seen her. Curious about her past, and wanting to know her better, Carter asks his friend to investigate her.

Catherine recognizes Carter immediately, but says nothing. Instead she turns her attetion to drawing out Carter's sister, Winnifred. Winnifred is a shy, retiring girl with few friends and an overbearing mother. Catherine listens to Winnifred's desires for her dress,and also becomes her friend.

This is an enjoyable read because of the interactions of the characters. I also enjoy that Catherine is such a compassionate, strong character. The relationship that develops between Catherine and Carter draws you in and keeps you turning the pages as you wonder what will happen next.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A LADY OF HIDDEN INTENT 2 décembre 2008
Par Tamara Tilley - Publié sur
A LADY OF HIDDEN INTENT by Tracie Peterson is the second title in her Ladies of Liberty series. We meet up with Catherine Newbury- a girl of seventeen - as she dances at one of the many functions she is accustomed to in the life she leads in the elitist set in England. Her partner, Carter Danby, is a visiting American who is study the architecture of Bath. He is taken by Catherine, and she too is smitten by the handsome man with the witty tongue, but he is merely a visitor who will soon return to the Americas.
Later that night, Catherine's stable and indulgent world is turned up-side down. Her father's business partner has corrupted the company and fled, leaving Mr. Newbury to take the brunt of the punishment. In fear of Catherine's safety, Mr. Newbury sends her, along with two of his loyal servants to America. Five years later, Catherine has taken on the sir name of Shay, and finds herself as a much sought after seamstress in Philadelphia. Saving all her money for her father's defense, she lives in sadness from both the separation and the concern for his well being.
When Carter Danby accompanies his mother and sister to the local seamstress, he is introduced to Catherine and sense something about her. Catherine immediately recognizes Carter and does her best to stay out of his watchful eye. Carter is intrigued by the women who labors, yet has an air of sophistication and upbringing. He intends to find out more about Catherine Shay.
Though Catherine is quite sweet and considerate of all those she works with, Felicia is not taken in or appreciative of Catherine's charms. She senses she is not who she claims to be and decides to find out what she can about Catherine's past.
A LADY OF HIDDEN INTENT is another fine book by Tracie Peterson. Catherine, though demure and sweet, is also stoic and single minded in seeing her father exonerated and freed. Carter is quite charming and will stop at nothing to secure Catherine at his side.
I enjoyed A LADY OF HIDDEN INTENT, though I felt at times certain plots were left flat. So much more could of become of Felicia hateful ways or Carter Danby's father's balance of business and corruption. Other than that, it was an entertaining read as always.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 entertaining inspirational Victorian romance 6 mars 2008
Par Harriet Klausner - Publié sur
In 1850 in Bath England, Catherine Newbury has lived a luxurious lifestyle without a care in the world. Her idyllic life ends when she learns the police are coming to arrest her father Nelson for co-owning a slave ship. Knowing he is innocent, Nelson refuses to run. However, he wants his beloved daughter safe while he corrects the mess.

Five years later in Philadelphia, Catherine is a popular dress designer who desperately needs to find a way to prove her father is innocent and get him released from prison; only her belief in God keeps her going. American architect Carter Danby, whom her dad introduced to her on her last party night in England, sees her when he escorts his mother and sister for a fitting, but does not recognize her. Still he desires her and wants to help her as he believes by her demeanor that she is carrying a dark mystery, but though she finds him attractive, she refuses to reveal her secret as she trusts no one except God since her father was incarcerated falsely.

A LADY OF HIDDEN INTENT is an entertaining inspirational Victorian romance. Catherine holds the story line together as she changes from pampered debutante to self sufficient designer while never losing sight of her objective or her faith in God not man. Sub-genre readers will appreciate this fine heartening historical.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 3-1/2 stars. Nice little read. 7 juin 2009
Par skunktrain - Publié sur
This is a good little novel. I found myself quite interested in the descriptions of life in the "sewing house" where the heroine lived. I felt the story dragged on a bit in parts, but nothing too bad. It didn't set my world on fire, but I didn't find it an excruciating struggle to finish, anyhow. There were some interesting characters and even a "villain" of sorts, which kept my interest sufficiently.

The religious aspects of the novel were integrated nicely. I didn't feel like I was being hammered over the head with sermons all the time.

I read at "above average" speed, and can finish a book of this length in maybe 4-6 hours. Had I been a slower reader, maybe this book would have dragged a bit more. If you take a few days to finish a book, you might not be as forgiving; but for me, it was okay.

This was a new twist on the age-old Cinderella story, complete with a ball, a rich girl turned servant, and a "prince" to come to her rescue. It was fun to read, but not one to leave a lasting impression.

The Prologue is very well written and draws the reader in, with English Catherine Newbury's first encounter with the American Carter Danby in 1850. She is hardly more than a girl and Mr. Danby is there as a student of architecture. They are immediately attracted to each other (but do not admit it to each other) but live worlds apart and they never plan to see each other again.

Five years later, Miss Newbury has taken on a new last name to remain anonymous as she works as a seamstress in Philadelphia, trying to earn money to help her falsely imprisoned father. Just so happens, that is where Mr. Danby lives. When he goes with his mother and sister for a meeting with the renowned dress designer, he is certain he has seen her before - but her name doesn't ring a bell. He takes it upon himself to be her hero and to win her affections, while she is caught up with the past and trying to figure out a way to help her father and not bring any needless attention to herself.

What follows is a predictable and somewhat disappointing story line. There aren't intrigues for the reader; rather the characters don't communicate well, and keep each other in the dark, when it all could have been resolved much sooner. There is one chance of danger to Miss Newbury when a jealous co-worker wants to get revenge, but it all comes to naught when it ends in empty threats.

This is the first time I have read any Tracie Peterson book. My overall opinion is that she is a gifted writer, but not the best at developing deep, interesting plots. I was not sorry to have read this book; I enjoyed it. It was a very light read, so just don't expect any sudden twists and turns. I have another Tracie Peterson book to read because I think she is a talented writer and I believe she can do better!
