Ladies of Liberty Book Three Jun 18, 2009
Sadly to say this is the last book in this series! I really enjoyed reading about these strong willed young woman, which were not the norm in this era and as a Tracie Peterson fan am very sad to have this series end. This particular book is about a young woman, Cassie, who goes to live (become a companion) with a elderly woman, Mrs Jamison. This elderly woman is really very spy and quick for a woman of her age and Cassie finds herself really enjoying herself and loving her ... however, she becomes very concerned when Mrs Jamison's son moves in and starts causing trouble. Come to find out the son has managed to break Mrs Jamison's heart over and over and this time it becomes deadly. He is being investigated for insurance fraud by Mark Langford, who you can't help but like immediately even though to begin with he isn't completely honest with Cassie. I found this book very difficult to put down, I wanted to reach in and find some way to protect Mrs Jamison, I really disliked her son and found him very upsetting right from the start.I think this is a series that most will enjoy and certainly is one worth reading!
Enthralling, light historical read Jun 12, 2009
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.
Enjoyable and Dashing Mar 7, 2009
Another work of poetry in the form of prose from beloved author Tracie Peterson. In this story there were bits that dragged for me a little bit, but I absolutely love the story overall. This is the third book in the Ladies of Liberty series, yet all the stories stand alone with unconnected characters.
Years ago, when I first read the Yukon Quest 3-in-1 I was shocked at how vividly Tracie could present a villain and at how I could really feel a strong animosity toward a fictitious character. Well, in the novel those similar feelings were brought back to face this "bad guy" as well. The cruelty is so real that it is palpable.
I did feel in this story that the main character's faith was too strong and unwavering to be real, but it is just a story, and she is a perfect example of how one's faith should be. Through out this story we are given examples of love lost and found and growth within personal relationships to God. One of things that I found most intriguing to read in a character's plot was about a struggle to find God on his own, rather than just experiencing God through a friend or neighbor.
It is amazing what lessons can be learned through a bit of fiction.
This is a story that I would recommend for someone who enjoys the writings of Tracie Peterson and other authors like her. It is a good story that you can reflect a lot of what is going on inside yourself and evaluate your reactions to the various events through out and see how you may be growing.
A LADY OF SECRET OF DEVOTION Nov 13, 2008
In A LADY OF SECRET DEVOTION by Tracie Peterson, the last in the Ladies of Liberty series, we meet Cassandra Stover. The financial stress she, her mother, and young sister has felt after the death of her father has weighed heavy on Cassie. A chance meeting in a park becomes an answered prayer when Mrs. Jameston hires Cassie as her companion. A life of opulence and luxury and the growing bond Cassie feels for Mrs. Jameston is soon tarnished when Sebastian, Mrs. Jameston's derelict son comes home with a bullet wound, a friend, and a fiendish attraction for Cassie. Sebastian's cruel words of resentment towards his mother soon turn to threats, threats that Cassie is all too certain Sebastian might make good on. When Mark Langford, an insurance investigator, suspects Sebastian of fraud and possible murder, he enlists Cassie help to find out what she can about Sebastian's business practices. Under the guise of a courting relationship, Mark begins to spend considerable time with Cassie. Cassie agrees with Mark's covert plan because of her concern for Mrs. Jameston, but soon finds her feelings turning from make believe to something more. I really enjoyed A LADY OF SECRET DEVOTION. The characters were well defined and the plot fresh and unique. The relationship between Cassie and Mrs. Jameston is touching, and you soon feel Cassie's angst regarding the safety of her new companion. A quick read I thoroughly enjoyed.
