“To have God’s blessing is to have everything, indeed.”
Step back once again in American history to the early years of the American Revolution; the year is 1775 and the town is Colonial Williamsburg. The setting showcases the story beautifully with rich historical detail during a turbulent time at the beginning of the war. Elizabeth Anne Lawson, pampered daughter of the lieutenant governor of the Virginia Colony and a rather fiery, rebellious mother, is engaged to Miles Cullen Roth, one of the most eligible bachelors in Williamsburg.
Elizabeth’s life will change rapidly as upheaval and political turmoil arrive in Williamsburg on her own front doorstep. Her life will be forever altered because of her father’s politics and choices. As part of her life changes, she becomes Liberty Lawson, lace maker of Williamsburg. Another complexity that enters her life is Noble Rynallt, a gentleman of Welsh descent and owner of Ty Mawr as well as cousin to Miles Roth. Liberty and Noble find their lives entwined very unexpectedly. The tension of their relationship and their politics plays a key role in keeping the story moving at a good pace.
This novel will please readers of historical fiction. The detail and the presence of historical figures such as Patrick Henry and George Rogers Clark add depth to the novel as well. The romance and references to faith make the book a marvelous read. I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully written novel that takes us back in time.
