Publisher's Summary

Lady Elizabeth Davenport is desperate. Her hand in marriage has been offered to the highest bidder, a distressing proposition in and of itself but made all the more repulsive when she meets her father’s first choice for her hand: Lord Pinweather. When her parents refuse to hear her pleas, Liz is forced to take drastic measures - she will impersonate her maid and begin anew in America on her own terms.

Once on board the ship to America, another passenger, Lord Barton, almost immediately discovers her true status as a noble. After listening to Liz’s highly modified version of her life and her plans to begin again, Barton has compassion on her and teaches her how to abandon her noble mannerisms. Upon disembarking, however, Barton’s generous spirit quickly dampens when he discovers Liz has indeed found work - as his own head housekeeper. 

Suddenly, the tender feelings they hid from each other on the ship are inescapable, but their difference in station makes romance impossible. As misunderstandings abound and a shocking character from Liz’s past looms, she knows she can’t hide her true identity forever. But as her deception begins to unravel, will her charade cost her the man she loves?

long fluffy interesting story

long fluffy interesting story... I've grown a little bit bored with some of the fluffy romances with extra simple plots, this is a little lengthier and very interesting historical fiction. The story nice side character development, keeps it interesting with transoceanic points from America and England in the plot.

This book is fantastic!

Wow. This book is wonderful. It hit all the top markers if what makes a great story for me. I laughed, I cried, I was entertained, and it also made me think.

Johnson is an excellent author who really knows how to tell a good story.

The narrator was also very nice to listen to. She portrayed a number of voices and accents distinctly and well. I don't know if someone who is actually from England would agree with that assessment, but as an American not overly familiar with British accents, I enjoyed it very much.

Great listening pleasure.

Loved this story! Loved the characters including the deplorable and gross Lord Pinweather. I am soooo glad Lady Liz and Lord Barton reached their HEA albeit with much heartache, twists, and turns which kept me up past four am listening to the Audible version. This book also deals with the sensitive topic of slavery in a very diplomatic way. And of course during this time period women were much used like cattle, however, Lady Liz and Lord Barton handled their situation with aplomb. What was new to me was the subject of females being able to inherit without having to give all their money to their husbands upon marriage. To this I said “Yaayyyy, hallelujah, amen”! Get this book. Highly recommended.

Amusing romp across two continents in the 1800s

Pleasant and light hearted, this tale amused and surprised me with some intriguing historical details, like the inclusion of Pastor Allen and his church in Philadelphia. Although the heroine at moments took on a victim role, and she was more forgiving than most, she seemed sketched aptly for the time period. Overall I found this to be an enjoyable romp with likable (and despicable) characters across nineteenth century America, England, and Wales.
