Now, I'm not saying that "The Wife of Freedom" is the next P&P because it not, but what it is... is an intriguing novel that jumps the boundaries of the expected and does it all through the eyes of a woman.
Mary Alwyn is a wife and a homemaker, but more importantly she's a free spirit. She's married to a local revolutionary and that's just fine by her, until one day the strapping Henry knocks on her door. With a husband wrapped up in the inevitability of war, Mary looks for flattery anywhere she can find it, and at the moment... it's in another man's bed. It's not until one intentional/accidental slip-up that her world is suddenly turned upside down, and instead of being the beautiful companion of a nobleman she is suddenly a traitorous spy and whore. How much ridicule can a woman take before she finally breaks down? And in the end, will she see flaw in the person she is or embrace the person she has become?
Camille LaGuire's writing was spectacular, creating a heroine that was so lovable/dislikeable that it was hard to keep from reading, and even though this novel was blatantly a period piece (set in the 1700's) it didn't read like one. The language was very easy to follow, the plot was evenly spaced and intriguing and the ending was not only shocking (after everything Mary had been thinking about throughout her journey) but actually quite charming, allowing the reader to embrace each character for their qualities as well as their flaws.
If you are a fan of the classics, period literature, period films, or strong female leads, this is definitely a book to look out for. (And please.. I beg of you... don't judge the book by it's cover!)
Happy reading my fellow Kindle-ites and remember: you are who YOU make yourself... not who OTHERS make you out to be.
