The English Lieutenant's Lady

By Evelyn M. Hill

Description:

I’m not your enemy.” He held her gaze, willing her to believe that lie.

It’s 1845. Britain and America both claim the Oregon Territory, and neither side is willing to back down. As the two nations prepare for war, the British government sends Lieutenant Geoffrey Montgomery to Oregon City on a confidential mission. Doing his duty means lying to everyone—including the woman who catches his attention the moment they meet.

Lia Griggs needs to find a home for herself and her nephew. She has the chance to carve a niche for herself in Oregon City—so long as she is prepared to hide her past from everyone, even the Englishman who quickly becomes her friend and ally... and more.

To survive, Geoff and Lia both need to pretend to be someone they're not. The last thing either of them wants is to fall in love. And as the threat of war grows stronger, choosing to stay together could cost them everything they have.

Book Takeaway:

C.S. Lewis wrote, "All mortals tend to turn into the thing they are pretending to be."
I think it's better to accept the person you are, instead of pretending to be someone else, and accept God's love for you even with all your flaws.

Why the author wrote this book:

When researching Oregon history for my first book, His Forgotten Fiancee, I came across a reference to British spies on a secret mission in the Oregon Territory. I wondered... what if one of these men were a practicing Christian, forced by his duty to have to lie to everyone he met? And what if he fell in love with one of the local women? What would he do?
I had to write the book to answer that question. I really wanted to know!
