The Creole Princess (The Gulf Coast Chronicles) by Beth White
Lyse Lanier may be French thru her heritage, but her best friend is the daughter of the British commander of Mobile. Their time spent together has created a close bond between them, even though Daisy is in love with Lyse’s brother. One day when a very charming young Spanish merchant arrives at the docks and sweeps Lyse off her feet with his wit and flair. The American Conflict moves closer to Mobile, it comes time for Lyse ‘s family to make a choice to choose to side with the British or the American side. She wonders who Rafael Gonzalez truly is, is he truly a merchant or is he a spy for the Revolution. Is he someone she can trust to protect her and her family from the danger to come as the conflict grows.
Beth White takes the reader deep into the world of a little known part of the American Revolutionary war. She writes with so much spectacular detail that you almost feel like that you are right there with the characters.
