My Haley is a brilliant writer. THE TREASON OF MARY LOUVESTRE is a fascinating historical novel that captures the bravery of an unheralded heroine. This is a page turner that will make a great movie.
—William Gladstone, international bestselling author of The Twelve and The Power of the Twelve.
My Haley has populated this crucial chapter of American history with a fascinating cast of characters, especially a slave woman who risked everything to spy for and help save the Union. Touched by the creative energy of a gifted story teller, Mary Louvestre walks through the pages of this book much as she journeyed along treacherous back roads to the nation’s capital.

I was invited to read a review copy of The Treason of Mary Louvestre and was asked forward my comments. My problem was that I got caught up in the story and forgot my assigned task. So, I had to immediately reread it mindful of my task, and I found it as enjoyable during the second reading as the first. It is a real potboiler, full of adventure and dialog, twist and turns of plot, humor and pathos, a likeable heroine and an evil villain. DEFINITELY WHAT ONE WOULD TERM A GOOD READ.

The Treason of Mary Louvestre by My Haley is a fascinating Civil War-era novel about a middle-aged slave who embarks on a perilous two-hundred-mile journey; she is determined to deliver intelligence about the vulnerabilities of a Confederate battleship to the Union secretary of the navy. The story is loosely based on a real historical character credited with committing acts of espionage against the Confederacy. Dr. Haley is a writer with exceptional talent. I give this novel my highest recommendation. A real page-turner!
