In 1814 and though her wealthy American expatriate family has become part of London¿s high society, eighteen years old Abigail Aldridge feels she must help those less fortune than herself. Abigail sneaks out with her cousin at night to tend to the needs of the residents of the Soho slums when Reverend Derrick Ames finds her wandering the dangerous alleys. While her cousin flees for home, Derrick and his friends escort Abigail to the Soho Square Church. When a raid of the church occurs, Abigail is arrested and taken to Newgate along with others.---- Her parents use their contacts, influence and affluence to gain her release. However, the subsequent scandal forces Abigail to return to the United States. Though stunned by the reactions of the Ton to her good intentions, Abigail plans to continue her efforts to help the poor chaperoned by the Countess Lillian Houghton, who seeks solace from her own woes.---- INNOCENT LIBERTINE is a vivid early nineteenth century character study that looks deeply into two women (more so Abigail than Lillian) as they adapt to new lives trying to tend to the poor. Abigail and Lillian have learned what paves the road to hell (or at least ¿colonial¿ exile), but both courageously move on with hopes of helping the impoverished as they feel all good Christians should do. Fans of inspirational Americana tales will appreciate this fine look at an expanding nation through the eyes of the two brave females and Abe, a brilliant intellectual who helps them find the path even as he and Abigail fall in love.---- Harriet Klausner

Once again T. Davis Bunn and his wife Isablla are at the top of my reading list. This Heirs of Acadia series has been a page turner from beginning to end. I would highly recommended these books for anyone who is looking for good, perfectly written, and wonderful Christian books that keep your attetion from one page to another. The Bunn's have me hooked for I will continue to read their books.

This is a wonderful series. This is the second book and it was great. I am now reading the third book and loving it also. You should certainly read these books in order because there is a continuing story line. Excellent writing!
