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
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.
P.S. Don't forget to read her other book, "Winter Fire".
