    The Civil War

    Lady of Secrets is a fresh new take on the American Civil War. The story centres around Henrietta, a free woman of colour and Elijah a poor Irish immigrant. At night she teaches other immigrants and black men and women who want to better their lives. Her and Elijah are attracted to each other but nothing can come of it or can it? Their story is beautifully portayed with the civil war as a back drop which though it was a devastating time it's my favourite period to read about in history. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Captivating story!

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I have read other books by Ms. Carr, and her writing just keeps getting better and better with each book. She has such an excellent writing style and creates such strong storylines that really pull the reader in. This book is no different. Set in the time of the Civil War, Henrietta is a free black woman who leads a pretty easy and carefree life until one drunken night with her friends changes her life in a way she couldn't have imagined. Ms. Carr has created a passionate story with a strong and captivating female lead which is filled with intrigue, suspense, and adventure. She did an excellent job of including elements of history that flowed with the story and made it feel all the more authentic, Scenes were described with such detail, it made me feel like I was right there experiencing it all. This was a book I could not put down and I am really looking forward to the next one. A wonderful start to a great series!

    Delightful Historical Romance

    Lady of Secrets is an entertaining book. With the historical setting of the Civil War, G.S. Carr creates a believable world, as are the characters. Henrietta Wright is smart and from a well to do family. She teaches adults to read, which is how she meets Elijah. Elijah is an Irish immigrant who works very hard at laborious jobs. Their love is forbidden even in the North, which makes their story even more compelling. The story did leave a few loose ends. For example, what happened to Thomas after he returned home? Was Ruth's foray into the military successful? What happened to Abby? Did the Confederate Captain come back for Olivia? An epilogue may have given a bit of closure. Other than that, the book was delightful. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
