Book Review: The Creole Princess by Beth White

Lyse Lanier is different. Though she spends her time with her very British best friend, her skin, her comparative poverty and her french heritage are still very apparent. It hasn't mattered much before, but now that the year 1776 is upon them, everyone's loyalties to the crown will be put to the test.
Enter a young Spanish merchant, and the political intrigue just grows. There are spies everywhere, and it's hard to know who to trust. Especially once the girls hear the ideas of this new free country.

If you are a fan of history, you will appreciate Beth White's writings. There are lots of details about the politics of the times, which if you are not an American citizen (like me), it's a little trickier to follow. Still, I enjoyed it - I did wish there was a little more action at the end - I felt like it was building toward more than what happened so that was a little disappointing. Still a good read though, and highly recommended for American history buffs who like a little romance too :-)

Thank you to Revell Publishing for a free copy of this book to review.
