Contributor Review ~ So Fair a Lady by Amber Perry

About the Book

Boston, MA 1773: Shards of Eliza Campbell's life crash to the ground when she discovers a devastating secret: her father was a spy for the Sons of Liberty. Determined to uncover the truth--at any cost--not even a marriage proposal from the dashing British Officer Samuel Martin can dissuade her. When rescued from British capture by handsome patriot Thomas Watson, Eliza discovers what her father risked his life for and yearns to know more. But will her budding attraction to this courageous patriot damage her already wounded heart? 

After years of being blackmailed by Officer Martin, Thomas plans to start a new life in the small town of Sandwich. However, when his actions place Eliza and her sister in danger, he must act quickly to protect them from falling into enemy hands. If the three of them are discovered, their lives will never be the same. Now, not only must he protect Eliza, he must protect his heart from a love that is sure to wound him far greater than any British soldier ever could.

So Fair a Lady - Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

A spectacular debut novel by Amber Perry! Breathtaking and gut-wrenching scenes fill this wonderful Pre-Revolutionary War story about two courageous Americans; whose faith and patriotism motivate them to seek truth above all else, and whose love of country and each other push them toward ultimate sacrifices.

Eliza Campbell's sheltered life disintegrates when her beloved father dies and leaves behind the discovery of a well-kept secret; one that he desperately wishes Eliza to know and understand. Abruptly driven from her home by British forces, she and her sister Kitty escape from Boston with a virtual stranger; Thomas Watson. Thomas has secrets of his own and vows to protect the beautiful daughters of his beloved mentor by sheltering them in obscurity, within the walls of his own home. Also pursuing both Eliza and Thomas; for totally different reasons, is British officer Samuel Martin, who demands love from Eliza and vengeance from Thomas. Both realize the horrific consequences of being found; not only for themselves but for the cause they support.

The ensuing chapters of this book are filled with tender moments and glimpses of historical events; events that should challenge those of us who enjoy freedoms afforded by the valiant efforts of those who bravely secured them, to be very thankful. Perry's characters are well developed; the scenes in this book are neither under-written or over-written and the reader leaves its pages with a deepened understanding of the value of serving one's heavenly King above all else.

It was tempting to banner this novel with five stars and I would have, except that I think Amber Perry is only going to get better, and the rest of this story is just waiting to be told in its upcoming sequel.

It was a pleasure to receive this novel from the author and act as an early influencer.
