Book Description

Faced with an impossible choice, Anne Marlowe is torn between her love for her husband and the hope of her father’s forgiveness. As the American forces follow up on their tide-turning victories over the British at Freeman’s Farm and Bemis Heights, Peter is drawn inextricably deeper into the shady network of espionage that could cost them both their lives.

Is his commitment to the Rebel cause stronger than his hard-won love for Anne? Will her sacrifice tear them apart again...this time forever? Or will they find the peace and happiness they both seek in a new beginning?

The Partisan’s Wife follows Anne and Peter through the war torn landscape of Revolutionary War America, from the Battle of Saratoga to New York, Philadelphia and beyond.

Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Authors get their ideas in a variety of ways. For me, it’s mainly from dreams–very cinematic dreams–that stay in my head long after I’ve awakened. Mostly these night flicks are nothing more than a collection of cryptic and often unrelated scenes that need to simmer on the back burner while my muse helps to add seasoning and substance to the mix. I’ve always loved history. Way back in junior high, my mind would wander from dates, battles and treaties to musings on what it might have been like to live in another time. Family vacations always included visits to Civil War or Revolutionary War battle sites, tours of colonial houses and restored villages, which, even these many years later, serve as inspiration. Born in New York City, I live in central Connecticut with a long-time husband, a grown-up daughter and two dogs. 2012 was a big year for the family as we welcomed our first grandson into the world. Other books by Kathy Fischer-Brown include Winter Fire, Lord Esterleigh's Daughter, and Courting the Devil.

This story begins in September 1777.

Peter Marlowe, an Englishman accused of a crime he did not commit, is an officer in The American Patriot army. He is married to Lady Anne Darvey, the estranged daughter of the Marquess of Easterleigh.

The author has described the setting and the time vividly. Being an Australian, I know little about this war, but the treachery, betrayal, and not knowing who was friend or foe quickly ensnared me. Peter was a brave officer, prepared to risk all for the cause. Anne was more headstrong than brave, but she made an impression on me. No simpering lady this one. Desperate to find her father and repair the damage to their relationship she is prepared to sacrifice everything even Peter. Peter is prepared to sacrifice everything for his beliefs.
Tony Granville, Anne's cousin, starts out as a drunken card sharp, but redeems himself in my eyes when he helps her out of a dangerous situation. By the end of the story, I found him to be quite heroic.
Dark family secrets, betrayal, and an array of interesting characters, make this an exciting read. Can't wait to read the next two books in the series

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical Romance; Revolutionary War June 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was so intricate in detail that I learned a lot about history. I loved that the author took us to great landmarks in the U.S., especially Philadelphia.
This is a trilogy however, but since it is the last part I felt that everything was finalized, and I now want to read the first 2 books. The imagery that the author used made me feel like I was on the prairie and was a frontier. How the people of that time period lived was definitely well described by the author. The American Revolution was a sad time in U. S. history, war usually is. This was a hard thing to deal with because the 13 colonies were fighting for their freedom from Britain.
I thought about how my life would be different if the U.S. lost. This is definitely a history that is worth reading about. This is when the Continental Congress was formed. I could go on and on. The Boston Tea Party, Ben Franklin, and learning to live in a new and different world was the setting for this book.
There was also romance and espionage.
I truly liked to take a trip back in time to read about the colonies. I was born and raised in Connecticut, so the weather (snow) and other things that call the North East their home were really fun to read about (animals, plants, etc).

This would be a cool book club book to do over the Internet to compare different areas to live (CT versus TX or CA). I was given a copy to review from Goddess Fish, however all opinions are my own! I am Giving this book a 5/5!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Written Historical Novel June 4, 2013
By Krystal
Format:Kindle Edition
DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary ARC of The Partisan's Wife from GoddessFish in return for my honest review. This does not in any way reflect upon my review. All thoughts/opinions of this novel are 100% my own.

When I signed up to do this review, I was unaware that this was actually the third part in the series. I was originally drawn to the Revolutionary War aspect of the novel. Instead of backing out, I forged ahead through the book anyway so that I could write an honest review of this particular book and not the trilogy as a whole.

The being said.....

I absolutely loved this book! The attention to detail was incredible - it was obvious that the author spent a great deal of time on her research. From the actions and speech patterns of her characters to the way the settings were depicted, I could feel like I was living during the Revolutionary War, watching the story as it unfolded.
I was completely caught up in her words, at time unable to get to sleep at my normal time because I found myself not wanting to put down my kindle. I had to know what was going to happen next! Her characters were well developed each with their own interests and driving factors. And there was (in my opinion) a perfect balance of the different classes - some were loyalists, while others were rebels, and while others still were simply opportunists willing to support whichever side they believed could give them the best outcome.

I could go on and on (literally) about this novel, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone, so I guess you're just going to have to read it for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Trilogy Concludes February 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the last installment of a trilogy set in the 18th Century, which begins in Britain and ends in the depths of the American Revolutionary War. No mistake about it, "The Partisan's Wife" is a no-holds-barred historical novel. The research is impeccable; the characters act and speak in tune with their times. From the drawing rooms of England to the hardships and perils of a frontier farm lying in the path of two warring armies, the reader will be drawn into the sights, smells and sounds of the time. Here we have the touch of lindsey-woolsey, the smell of black powder, or of a warm bucket of fresh milk carried through new fallen snow on a winter morning--as well as a grand, moving story about love and destiny.

Espionage comes to the fore in the last novel as the hero, Peter, plays this most deadly of games for the sake of his adopted American Cause. Reunited at last though the lovers are, they will again be torn apart by circumstances, by twists of fate and fortunes of war, and, not least, by their very 18th Century conceptions of personal honor. Echoes of great writers from the period abound here, but this modern tale moves fast and is always inventive. The characters, drawn from all classes--loyalists, rebels, opportunists, the cruel, the mad and the kind--are crisply drawn and always believable. I'd recommend "The Partisan's Wife" particularly to any reader who enjoys the period, or a thoroughly researched historical set in any time. You won't be disappointed.

More About the Author

As a child Kathy wanted to be a writer when she grew up. She also wanted to act. After receiving an MFA in Acting and playing the part of starving young artist in New York, she taught theater classes at a small college in the Mid-West before returning home to the East Coast, where over the years, she and her husband raised two kids and an assortment of dogs. During stints in advertising, children's media publishing, and education reform in the former Soviet Unions, she wrote whenever she could. Her love of early American history has its roots in family vacations up and down the East Coast visiting old forts and battlefields and places such as Williamsburg, Mystic Sea Port, and Sturbridge Village. At the same time, she daydreamed in history classes, imagining the everyday people behind all the dates and conflicts and how they lived.

Claiming her best ideas are born of dreams, Kathy has written a number of stories over the years. Her first published novel, Winter Fire, a 1998 Golden Heart finalist in historical romance, was reissued in 2010 by Books We Love, Ltd.

When not writing, she enjoys reading, cooking, photography, playing "ball" with the dogs, and rooting on her favorite sports teams.
