Is his commitment to the Rebel cause stronger than his hard-won love for Anne? Will her sacrifice tear them apart again...this time forever? Or will they find the peace and happiness they both seek in a new beginning?
The Partisan's Wife follows Anne and Peter through the war torn landscape of Revolutionary War America, from the Battle of Saratoga to New York, Philadelphia and beyond.
"This book was so intricate in detail that I learned a lot about history. I loved that the author took us to great landmarks in the U.S., especially Philadelphia.... The imagery that the author used made me feel like I was on the prairie and was a frontier. How the people of that time period lived was definitely well described by the author. The American Revolution was a sad time in U. S. history, war usually is. This was a hard thing to deal with because the 13 colonies were fighting for their freedom from Britain...I thought about how my life would be different if the U.S. lost. This is definitely a history that is worth reading about. This is when the Continental Congress was formed. I could go on and on. The Boston Tea Party, Ben Franklin, and learning to live in a new and different world was the setting for this book. There was also romance and espionage. 5 stars" Amazon reviewer

About the Author
I've always loved history. Way back in junior high, my mind would wander from dates, battles and treaties to musings on what it might have been like to live in another time. Family vacations always included visits to Civil War or Revolutionary War battle sites, tours of colonial houses and restored villages, which, even these many years later, serve as inspiration.
Born in New York City, I live in central Connecticut with a long-time husband, a grown-up daughter and two dogs. 2012 was a big year for the family as we welcomed our first grandson into the world.
Other books by Kathy Fischer-Brown include Winter Fire, Lord Esterleigh's Daughter, and Courting the Devil.

Reviewed by Tracy Slowiak for Readers' Favorite Historical fiction. If done well, this genre is absolutely my favorite to read. If done poorly, it can be some of the worst drivel a reviewer has to slog through. Thankfully, I didn't have to slog through The Partisan's Wife, which is the third book in The Serpent's Tooth series by author Kathy Fischer-Brown. Follow the story of Anne Marlowe, married to Peter Marlowe, officer in the American Patriot Army, and formerly known as Lady Anne Darvey, now estranged from her father, the Marquess of Easterleigh. We find Anne in the unenviable position of being in the middle of her father and her husband, who are at diametric opposites regarding the fight for independence in the Americas. As Peter gets drawn further and further into the rebel cause and espionage becomes more and more a part of what he feels he must do, both he and Anne's lives are more and more at risk. Author Kathy Fischer-Brown's book is simply a masterful example of what a piece of historical fiction should be. A suspenseful, romantic and exciting story set in the very realistic backdrop of the Americas in the Revolutionary War time period, this book was one that I simply could not put down once I started reading it. This was the first book in the series that I read, and, while I could easily follow the story line, I am looking forward to going back and reading The Serpent's Tooth series from the beginning, that is how much I enjoyed this tale. The Partisan's Wife is a book that would be enjoyed by anyone who loves great historical fiction, a suspenseful read, or just great fiction in general. I highly recommend this book, and am very much looking forward to reading more from author Kathy Fischer-Brown in the near future!
In "The Partisan's Wife", the last book in the trilogy, the author picks up where the second book left off. I have to admit that I am totally impressed with the author's research into the time period her books are written in, everything was just perfect. With more twists and turns, the author finishes off the trilogy with an unexpected ending. I would Highly recommend the trilogy for all suspenseful historical romance fans, but be sure to read them in order so your not missing out on anything. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.
