The Creole Princess by Beth White Book Review

 

 

 

 

 

About

Torn between loyalties to family and flag, one young woman is about to discover that her most important allegiance is to her heart.
It is 1776, and all along the eastern seaboard the American struggle for independence rages. But in the British-held southern port of Mobile, Alabama, the conflict brewing is much quieter--though no less deadly.

Lyse Lanier may be largely French in heritage, but she spends most of her time in the company of the ebullient daughter of the British commander of Mobile. When a charming young Spanish merchant docks in town, Lyse is immediately struck by his easy wit and flair for the dramatic. But is he truly who he makes himself out to be? Spies abound, and Spain has yet to choose a side in the American conflict. Is Lyse simply an easy mark for Rafael Gonzalez to exploit? Or are his overtures of love as genuine as Spanish gold?

With spectacular detail that brings the cultural gumbo of the Colonial Gulf Coast alive, Beth White invites you to step into a world of intrigue and espionage from a little-known slice of the American Revolutionary War.

My review;
"The Creole Princess" by Beth White is the story of a young woman during the time that America was trying to become a free country. Not everyone is who they say they are and it was very hard at the time to know who or who not to trust. Lyse Lanier is trying to find out what she really wants in her life. Should she believe in herself? I enjoyed her story. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book by Revell Publishing Company and all opinions are my own.
