is it a game of pretense? 22 août 2008
Par Kimberly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"A Lady of Secret Devotion" is the third and last book in the Ladies of Liberty series by Tracie Peterson. I am quite sad that the series is now over because I have enjoyed reading stories about strong-willed women in the pre-Civil War era. The book was quite the page-turner as I read the whole thing in only a day.

Cassandra Stover, or Cassie as people call her is hired to be the companion to Mrs. Jameston, an elderly yet lonely woman. Cassie is thrilled to live in such an elegant home and eventually comes to love Mrs. Jameston as one would love their own family. Mark Langford, comes to Philadelphia to investigate the death of his best friend. He has suspicions that Sebastian Jameston, Mrs. Jameston's son may have killed him. Mark literally collides into Cassie upon first meeting her. As he gets to know her, he proposes that they play a game of pretend. In order to investigate and get closer to Sebastian, he suggested that he and Cassie pretend they are courting each other. Cassie agrees since she has her doubts about her employers son, however as she spends more time with Mark, what started as a game of pretend is slowly not becoming a game anymore.

The romance between Cassie and Mark seemed kinda rushed to me yet it was still fun to read about how two people fall in love. :) What I must applaud Tracie Peterson on is in her ability to create such an evil character of Sebastian Jameston. I have never seen a character who's actions and cruelty towards others were so devestating.

Overall I really enjoyed the book. I find that I enjoyed book 2 ("A Lady of Hidden Intent") the most out of the three but between this book and "A Lady of High Regard" I cannot pick a favorite. The entire series was just wonderful and I will miss reading about a new "lady" in each new book. I look forward to her new series that comes out in September! :)

Enthralling, light historical read 12 juin 2009
Par Holly - Publié sur Amazon.com
The third book in the Ladies of Liberty series by Tracie Peterson. Each book stands alone. Set in 19th century Philadelphia, Cassie Stover is hired to be a companion to Mrs. Jameston, a very wealthy, elderly woman. Cassie's father was killed when she was a teenager so she and her mother have always worked to provide for themselves and her younger sister. Living with Mrs. Jameston brings Cassie into a world she could have imagined.

When Mrs. Jameston's wayward and ruthless son, Sebastian, returns home, Cassie fears for her safety and that of her employer. Sebastian is suspected of fraud and murder, so when handsome Mark Langford asks Cassie to help him investigate Sebastian, she agrees. There is romance and a bit of mystery and intrigue, and certainly danger. What Cassie doesn't plan on, is falling for Mark in the process.

Like the other books in this series, this is an enthralling, light historical read. Cassie is a woman of faith, Mark is a man who struggles with his, but ultimately comes to accept it. The novel is Christian without being overly preachy, the characters are likeable and the story is interesting. Of the three, I think I liked this one the best.

A Lady of Secret Devotion 25 août 2008
Par Betty J. Chambers - Publié sur Amazon.com

I thought "A Lady of Secret Devotion" an entirely delightful story. It is so important not to be unequally yolked, and the story tells how God can work out all of the details in order to bring about many circumstances. Whether it is bringing the man you care for into a relationship with Him, or keeping you safe from unwanted attention and protection. Tracy Peterson uses her gift of writing to proclaim God's love for us all without doing it in a preachy way. She shows us ways to be in God's will by simple example. I would recommend this book along with the other two in the Ladies of Liberty series, "A Lady of High Regard" and "A Lady of Hidden Intent". They were books you don't want to put down until you come to the end, which is always too soon.

A lovely read 25 août 2008

Again, Tracie has written such a lovely book !! Cassie, the main character in this novel has such a natural sweetness about her that endears her to the reader. She opens her mouth when she may have been better to wait before speaking. Mrs Jameston has hired her to be her companion and throughout the book, one senses the sincere love they have found in each other !!God's love is evident throughout. Such a GOOD read !! with romance intertwined !!

Tracie Peterson's best historical series to date 12 août 2008
Par Deborah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Cassandra Stover owes wealthy widow Mrs. Jameston many thanks. She has been hired to be the companion for the elderly lady and will be able to help support her widowed mother and younger sister. Now living in a life of luxury, Cassandra starts to settle down and enjoy the nicer things in life. However just as she's beginning to relax, Mrs. Jameston's son returns to town. A selfish man who only thinks of himself, Sebastian begins to plot how to gain his mother's money even if it means killing his own mother and Cassandra.

The Ladies of Liberty series has been a delight to read. While each book in the series can be read by itself, it is very refreshing to see a bunch of strong women in a time where women were seen and not heard. I really liked Cassandra's character. She was a faithful companion and not afraid to speak her mind. She's a very good and clean character but neither is she too perfect to be unbelievable. Her chemistry with Mark is excellent. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow throughout the story. Wow, Sebastian is one of the worse villains I have ever read in a book. Just the way he treated his mother was absolutely horrible. I'm glad that while she was not able to change his ways, she did not approve of him and was even disgusted with him. I'm tired of reading in novels where the mother is oblivious to the faults of her children and then blames others for their wrongdoings. It was refreshing to see that she realized that she had helped with his downfall and that also she wasn't going to put up with his dastardly shenanigans. This has been my favorite series of all of Tracie Peterson's books and this novel makes an excellent addition to the collection. I am hoping that there will be another lady to read about in the near future.
