The Creole Princess written by Beth White, is the second book in the Gulf Coast Chronicles. This book certainly takes you to 1776, it’s as if you are breathing the warm humid air of Mobile, trekking through the mud yourself. Lyse Lanier, a girl with a mostly French background, meets a charming Spanish merchant in the streets of Mobile. But with tension between British and Americans increasing, will Lyse be able to find love?
This charming book has you journey to a time known as the American Revolutionary War. From spies, to pirates, to teachers and slaves, this book has it all. It’s a glimpse into a time where things were harsh, people brutal, but love still lived on. I loved how the History was threaded throughout the book, with adventure and romance. It’s a page turner, and one you will put down only when your done. The only downside is that the next in the series comes out in 2016. I will admit the beginning was a little confusing to me, especially with who was who, but as I read on I got some clarification and truly enjoyed the book. Now it’s your time to be transported to the Gulf Coast in 1776 and follow a girl as she grows into a woman during a time of war.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Revell.
