9780425190159: A Catch of Consequence (Makepeace Hedley)

A captivating historical novel from the national bestselling author, as Ariana Franklin, of Mistress of the Art of Death.

Makepeace Burke serves Patriots at her late father's tavern on the Boston waterfront in 1765 and hates the redcoats with a vengeance. But even she can't watch an angry mob drown an Englishman. She rescues him and nurses him back to health-and falls in love.

In Patriot Boston, hers is an unforgivable sin-made worse by the fact that her Englishman turns out be the aristocratic Sir Philip Dapifer. Philip must smuggle Makepeace aboard a ship bound for London and save her life at the expense of the world she knows.

Rich in period detail, bringing the years of colonial rebellion to vivid life, A Catch of Consequence is a stylish novel of Boston and England, and of a woman who defies convention in both worlds.

About the Author:

Diana Norman (1933-2011) worked on local newspapers in Devon and the East End of London and at age of twenty became the youngest reporter in what used to be Fleet Street. Norman authored biographies as well as historical novels. In total, she wrote 11 historical novels including The Vizard Mask, The Pirate Queen, and Fitzempress' Law. She is survived by her husband, film critic Barry Norman, and their two daughters.

From Booklist:

Makepeace Burke hates waste, so it is only logical that she would fish a drowning man out of the ocean. The man turns out to be Englishman Philip Dapifer, who was tossed into Boston Harbor by several Sons of Liberty protesting the Stamp Tax. Most of her customers and Makepeace herself are closely aligned with the cause for American freedom, so she tries to keep Philip hidden in her tavern until he recovers, but once Makepeace's future mother-in-law intrudes, everyone in Boston soon knows she is harboring the enemy. Forced to leave everything behind, Makepeace travels with Philip to England to begin a new life in a country she hates with a man with whom she is slowly falling in love. Resplendent with historical details, filled with beautifully crafted characters, and kissed with a subtle touch of romance, Norman's tale is historical fiction at its best. Makepeace is so irresistibly indomitable, readers will relish every moment of her unforgettable adventures. John Charles
