A Catch of Consequence
An acclaimed historical novelist makes her American debut-with a story of love and war in colonial America and England.
A captivating historical novel from the national bestselling author, as Ariana Franklin, of Mistress of the Art of Death."Makepeace is so irresistibly indomitable, readers will relish every moment of her unforgettable adventures."
Makepeace Burke serves Patriots at her late father's tavern on the Boston waterfront in 1765 and hates the redcoats with a vengeance. But even she can't watch an angry mob drown an Englishman. She rescues him and nurses him back to health-and falls in love.
In Patriot Boston, hers is an unforgivable sin-made worse by the fact that her Englishman turns out be the aristocratic Sir Philip Dapifer. Philip must smuggle Makepeace aboard a ship bound for London and save her life at the expense of the world she knows.
Rich in period detail, bringing the years of colonial rebellion to vivid life, A Catch of Consequence is a stylish novel of Boston and England, and of a woman who defies convention in both worlds.
"Moves at a cracking pace...An exhilarating sense of those times and their possibilities."
