Bestselling author Tracie Peterson—acclaimed for more than six dozen gripping novels, including the Alaskan Quest finale Whispers of Winter—launches the first installment in a series that stars winsome, independent heroines. Featuring non-stop adventure, endearing characters, and surprising twists, this compelling tale of wholesome love transports listeners to the opulence and privation of 1852 Philadelphia.

Charming young socialite Mia Stanley has a knack for matchmaking—and for sticking her affluent little nose into trouble. Much to the dismay of her proper parents and their highfalutin friends, she also writes for Goodey’s Lady Book magazine. When her writing draws Mia into the seamy WD of the downtrodden, she uncovers shocking secrets that threaten her safety. But as Cupid’s arrow tugs her heart in an unexpected direction, she fears her reckless independence may have dashed all hope for true love.

Barbara Caruso’s exhilarating narration helps charm listeners with the excitement, fun, and romance of Peterson’s captivating gem.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynelle Clark | 2/15/2014

    " Loved the plot of the story and how the author brought everything together in one final sweep. Both the main characters played a vital roll to build the story to a believable and enjoyable read. The word was practically demonstrated. To serve and help your fellow man and honor your parents and He will do the rest. Thanks for sharing the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheila | 2/13/2014

    " This story was basically a retelling of Jane Austen's Emma. The characters were somewhat flat and one dimensional and the storyline got largely predictable and repetitive after a while. The ending also seemed rushed and unsatisfying leaving some, albeit trivial, loose ends. Definitely nowhere near Peterson's best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelly | 2/11/2014

    " Lovely little story. I enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaye | 1/31/2014

    " It started out too slow for me - but picked up in the end. Enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicola | 1/20/2014

    " Simple and easy love story. Guessed the ending and skipped some but it was very clean and fluffy. Has a time and a place. Not for people who ready heavier books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 1/13/2014

    " I LOVED the main characters of this story, Mia & Garrett. I stayed up WAY too late last night finishing the last 1/3 of the book because I couldn't put it down. It's a wonderful love story w/ some action and suspense at the end. Garrett can be my knight in shining armor anyday. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy R | 1/11/2014

    " Great period piece romance with Christian themes, moral dilemmas, choices and their dramatic consequences. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Loraine | 1/1/2014

    " I like the era in which this is written, and it was a good story, but it dragged and didn't keep my attention like other authors do. It was very predictable, and although that's not a bad thing by itself, this one was too much so. I'm not sure what it was, and it was a good book, but not great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 12/15/2013

    " Very sweet book and a must read for those that like Christian Fictuon with a touch of romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 12/13/2013

    " Tracie Paterson takes the plot from Emma and gives it some suspense. A fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri | 12/7/2013

    " OK..hero a bit too artiocratic but who can help themselves with a damsel in distress. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anna | 11/23/2013

    " If you like sermons and interrupted confessions of love, then you'll love this. The story would have made a great short if you cut out all the repetitiveness. It's more focused on how we should reach out to the poor than on being an actual story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Snow | 11/13/2013

    " "It was a good book for one that loves a book of beauty, wonder, and a little mistary....to finish off with a interesting, lovely ending." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larik | 10/27/2013

    " I really like books that are love between long-time "just friends"..and this book didn't disappoint but instead was a great fun story about a woman who wanted to right the world and the man who wanted to right her!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justina | 9/23/2013

    " This was a good book that held my attention. It was easy to get into and read. The plot reminded me a lot of Jane Austens book Emma. I wouldn't mind reading more from this author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 9/21/2013

    " I don't think I'll be reading anything else from this series. The main character has good moral fiber, but is a lot blind to common sense and had to keep being rescued from her own impulses. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elise Widdis | 6/24/2013

    " Really good plot, funny, romantic, and fairly realistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karina | 1/29/2013

    " Didn't know what to expect when I started this and was pleasantly surprised to find it a christian romance....a historical christian romance. Even better! Enjoyed it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kyami | 2/19/2012

    " I liked the book but it was a little boring, up until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candace | 2/7/2012

    " Mia was kind of annoying in some parts but overall, this was a good read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Ford | 12/19/2011

    " I like Tracie Peterson. She writes about interesting periods of time and issues that I've never really thought about. This is about a woman being an advocate for the poor families of a seaport. I've liked the whole series, but this one was my favorite. (Firsts usually are in a series!) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robin | 9/11/2011

    " I bought this book at a used book sale but I still want my $1 and my two days back. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lydia Presley | 7/4/2011

    " A silly, uninteresting book. I picked this up because the covers for Tracie Peterson's books are simply gorgeous - I just wish the stories were as well. I should have known better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 6/25/2011

    " I really enjoyed reading this book a lot! Some of it was a little racy, but other parts were totally intense. I would have given it 5 stars, if the author had spared some of the racy details. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to read the next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamera | 6/15/2011

    " This was a sweet quick read. I enjoyed it, you need a bit of formula fiction every once and a while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalya | 4/3/2011

    " I've enjoyed all of the books in the Ladies of liberty series- This one especially. Wonderful full, characters with faults and goodness. Admirable writing and interesting plot. I loved how she brought a very real issue into fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 3/8/2011

    " Great period piece romance with Christian themes, moral dilemmas, choices and their dramatic consequences. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 2/8/2011

    " I couldn't really get into this book. Not a lot to the plot. I ended up just skimming the second half. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tierra | 1/5/2011

    " Cute story. I think it was a little like Emma where she falls for the best friend.
    The frustrating part of the book was that she couldn't take advice from anyone. Especially when she was putting herself in dangerous situations. I was ready to throttle her is she was real. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelly | 12/29/2010

    " Lovely little story. I enjoyed it. "

    " I enjoyed the story and the writing...the ending could have been more developed and longer, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 10/28/2010

    " Way too cheesy for me. I don't think I'll read the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karina | 10/19/2010

    " Didn't know what to expect when I started this and was pleasantly surprised to find it a christian romance....a historical christian romance. Even better! Enjoyed it! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robin | 8/15/2010

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 7/2/2010

    " Historical fiction about a young woman who wants to help end injustices in her city. Better thoughts on poverty and faith than usually present in a Christian romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 6/4/2010

    " "It was a good book for one that loves a book of beauty, wonder, and a little mistary....to finish off with a interesting, lovely ending." "
