Publishers 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?

A Lady of Hidden Intent (Bood 2) Oct 30, 2008
Tracie Peterson is a great author and I am really enjoying reading her books. They always bring me closer to our LORD, which I think we all need.
a tale of fashion and deception in the 1850's Jun 14, 2008
"A Lady of Hidden Intent" is the 2nd book in the Ladies of Liberty series by Tracie Peterson. And what another wonderful page-turner it is. I started the book yesterday and finished it a few minutes ago.
Catherine Newbury is a 17-year old young lady from Bath, England. She meets Carter Danby on the night she and her father hosts a Christmas party. Later that night, she overhears her father's business partner, Finely Baker claim that the authorities will soon be there to arrest him since his ships were found to have illegally traded slaves. Her father is truly innocent of any crime since it was all Baker's doing. To save her from any suspicion and threat, Catherine's father sends her away to America where she becomes a famed dress designer under the name "Catherine Shay". When Carter's mother and sister asks him to accompany them to a dress/design session with Catherine, Catherine recognizes him immediately while Carter seems to think he has met her before in the past. Catherine becomes close friends with Carter's sister and in the process he takes a liking to her and wants to learn more about who she really is.
I enjoyed the look into the 1850's era. Especially the look into the world of fashion and the hierarchy of the sewing house. It was also refreshing to see how Carter took a dislike to his father and brother having mistresses. We see in the book how an adulterous affair can lead people into unhappiness and the result of an affair can cause the death of an innocent unborn child. Carter's character showed he highly valued human life in any regard. Catherine herself is a very strong female character and not like the damsel-in-distress characters we often see in novels. She has suffered in another country for 5 years without her father. Yet she rises above adversiry and does not submit to those who try to wrong her (Felicia).
The only thing I would have liked to see in this book was a connection to "A Lady of High Regard". Both stories took place in the 1850's and in the same city (Philadelphia) so it would have been nice to see a cameo appearance by Mia and Garrett. Despite this, it was an enjoyable read and Tracie Peterson proves to me once again why she is one of my favorite authors. I look forward to "A Lady of Secret Devotion" which come out later this summer. :)
Another great Tracie Petterson Book May 25, 2008
This book keeps you intrested through the whole story. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes to read.
It wasn't what I expected May 1, 2008
I have never read anything by Tracie Peterson, and just randomly purchased the book at the airport because it seemed interesting. However, I was sorely disappointed. Possibly the book was meant for the 10-year-old age group, but it was very lacking in any real action, drama, or tension and the characters fell flat. It skips around a bunch too. You read the prologue, and then you are thrown forward 5 years. After one random encounter with someone she didn't like and kept running away from, the main character sees him again in the USA and is scared that he might reveal her true identity and it might hurt her father's chances of getting out of prison. I don't know, it wasn't very intriguing and the author kept throwing in these pages about God and religion and I found it to be very preachy. Instead of developing drama between Felicia and the main character over Felicia knowing her secret, they make it very cut and dry where the main character flees instead of paying blackmail and then Felicia kind of disappears until we find her working in a shop. It lacked a lot of depth and while it may have had good historical notes, everything else was lacking. I could have done without this book and plan on re-selling it ASAP.
Wonderful Addition to the Series Mar 31, 2008
This is another great book in The Ladies of Liberty series by author Tracie Peterson. It kept my attention throughout and it resonates with the power of God. It helps us remember that His ways are not always our ways and we may not always understand why things happen in our lives, but can be assured that God has His reasons.
The heroine in this book (Catherine) had lost a lot, yet she perseveres and has a strong faith in God that sees her through.
