Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Part political tract, part fairytale and melodrama, The Wife of Freedom is the story of a woman whose wild heart leads her to betray. She takes up the job of spy to harnesss her own faithless nature, and only then learns real friendship and loyalty.

===

The Wife of Freedom is a romantic adventure that takes place in a fictional world called New Acton - a world something like America in 1776.

Mary Alwyn is the upstanding wife of a local revolutionary. She was once a wild orphan, who loved to run barefoot and jump in the mud, but she's been raised to be a good and proper wife. When she married the irrepressible Jackie Alwyn, everyone thought it was a perfect match. Unfortunately the man known to all as "Jackie the Freedom" is married to the revolution. So when Mary meets a charming nobleman, he's like a big mud-puddle, and she just can't help but jump in bed with him.

But Jackie - ever the anarchist - doesn't take the infidelity the way you might expect. When she betrays her lover's trust for the revolution, he holds her up as a hero and publishes a book about her titled "The Whore of Freedom." This becomes Mary's scarlet letter. If she's ever going to live down the first part of that name, she's going to have to live up to the second. So she sets out to be a spy, as bold as the reputation that precedes her, while learning anew what it is to be a real friend to those you love. But she'll never really be free until she returns to face her past.

(Note: the subject matter of this novel is mature, and while the style is not explicit, it does contain some intense scenes and material not suited for children.)

"Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen is and always will be my favorite book. I read it for the very first time when I was 16, and even before I finished it, I knew that it had forever changed my perception of women. Here was a novel that was not only written by a woman (which was exceedingly rare in that day and age) but also featured a very strong willed, opinionated, passionate female lead. Austen dared to step across the line of polite society and write not only WHAT she wanted, but HOW she wanted to. It was not until today, 13 years later, that I have ever seen a character that has impressed me as much as Elizabeth Bennett.

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.

I really enjoyed this book. It shows that you should never pass judgement on another and that everyone is capable of anything...
