"Author Kathy Fischer-Brown's book issimply a masterful example of what a piece of historical fiction should be. A suspenseful, romantic and exciting story set in the very realistic backdrop of the Americas in the Revolutionary War time period, this book was one that I simply could not put down once I started reading it. This was the first book in the series that I read, and, while I could easily follow the story line, I am looking forward to going back and reading The Serpent's Tooth series from the beginning, that is how much I enjoyed this tale. The Partisan's Wife is a book that would be enjoyed by anyone who loves great historical fiction, a suspenseful read, or just great fiction in general. I highly recommend this book, and am very much looking forward to reading more from author Kathy Fischer-Brown in the near future!" - Tracy Slowiak for Readers' Favorite --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
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.

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".
