Emma-like character fighting for women's rights  Oct 21, 2008
Mia Stanley is a lady of high regard living in late nineteenth century Pennsylvania fighting for the rights of women and children beyond what her social status believes is appropriate. Tracie Peterson has done it again in my opinion. I must admit that I was not crazy for this book and it's characters as I have been for some of Tracie's stories, but I did enjoy it and will recommend it and perhaps read it again.

Tracie Peterson has done it again in my opinion. I must admit that I was not crazy for this book and it's characters as I have been for some of Tracie's stories, but I did enjoy it and will recommend it and perhaps read it again. Mia has a very Emma-like quality about her. She wants to put everyone into a matchmade pair, but when she realizes who she wants to be her other half, it is a little too late as she pushed him away into a pair of his own.

Through this story you get entertainment and romance. There is mystery and suspense. There is a devotion and lesson to be learned. There are matters that affect your own life that you can gain from experiencing the lives of these characters. I have yet to come across a book by Tracie Peterson, except one, that I have not loved and this is no exception. It's great, not necessarily amazing, hence the four stars, but it's great.
 
Another wonderful Tracie Peterson work!   Feb 8, 2008

A LADY OF HIGH REGARD
Tracie Peterson
Read by Judith West
Judith West gives a polished performance depicting Mia Stanley, a young woman from a wealthy and influential Philadelphia family. Mia comes to believe she's a born matchmaker, but she can't find a romantic interest of her own. So she launches a journalism career instead. West captures her family's dismay, and Mia's resentment, when her father orders her to stop writing for Godey's Ladies Book. She adeptly depicts Mia's shock and concern after visiting seaman's wives on the Philadelphia docks and learning of their victimization: physical and sexual abuse, even their children being sold for bad debts. With clarity of narration, textured characterizations, and cultural authenticity, West brings to life Mia's ensuing fight for higher wages, reduced hours, and the return of the seaman's children.

Enjoyable read.  Jan 1, 2008
LADY OF HIGH REGARD follows Mia Stanley, the daughter of a wealthy Philadelphia family. Set in a time when social classes did not cross lines, Mia finds herself on a mission to help woman that are less fortunate than her, many who are seaman's wives being abused in their husband's absence . When she finds out these women are being forced to pay higher rents and bogus debits, she does some investigating. When Garrett, the boy next door and her lifelong friend sees her sneaking out of the house one night, he follows her, only to be horrified that she's gone to the docks to get more information about the seaman's wives. What starts out as brotherly protection, Garrett soon realizes his feelings for Mia have turned to love. He decides to do some of his own investigating into the corrupt behavior of one man, hoping Mia will obey her parents and leave the matter to someone more suitable. Mia, the consummate matchmaker, tries to get Garrett paired off so he will have less time to concern himself with her dangerous late night rendezvous. When it appears Garrett has found someone else, the idea of him no longer being around stings Mia's feelings. She too, realizes she is in love with him, but feels it is too late to tell him the truth.
Even though I'm not a fan of period pieces, I enjoyed LADY OF HIGH REGARD. The setting took a backseat to the story. I liked that TRACIE PETERSON set the tone of the book with the restrictions put on ladies at that time, but allowed tenacious Mia to be the moderate rebel, only wanting to right the wrongs of those less fortunate than herself. Of course, we had to wait until the end of the book to see if Garrett and Mia would reveal their true feelings for each other, but it was worth the wait.
 
An enjoyable story that makes you think.   Oct 18, 2007
Mia Stanley is a woman whose heart is bigger than her common sense. Mia is a writer for Godey's Lady's Book magazine during a time where it was frowned upon to be a working woman. Mia's heart and her writings lead her to the rougher part of town. Seamen's wives were being taken advantage of, and Mia made it her personal mission to makes sure they were treated fairly.

Tracie Peterson has her readers traveling to 1800's Philadephia, where there is adventure, danger, and very lovable characters. She also provides depth and has each of her readers thinking about what their role should be in helping people less fortunate.

A Lady of High Regard is the first book in the Ladies of Liberty series. This book is an enjoyable read, I finished it in one weekend and look forward to more.

She has also written the nonfiction book I Can't Do It All: Breaking Free from the Lies That Control Us with (Boomer Babes Rock!) Allison Bottke & Dianne O'Brian.
