YA-- Set in England at the time of the French Revolution, this historical novel is hard to put down. Mark Weatherby disappears after asking Kathryn Pennan's abusive, lecherous stepfather for her hand in marriage. A year later, she is forced to marry a wealthy young banker, a desperate act to save her family from poverty and to escape the advances of her stepfather. Trapped in a loveless marriage, Kathryn does her best to adjust to the situation. Falsely accused of murdering her husband, a pregnant Kathryn flees from her small town and settles in London, where she finds a world of opportunity and an unlikely change in her circumstances. This is a suspenseful story with a courageous young woman as the main character and a happy ending.-- Linda A. Vretos, West Springfield High School, VA
