A RESPECTABLE TRADE
Genre: Historical Romance, Historical Fiction
Only an author of Gregory's talents could create a story with the sweep of a Gone With the Wind, The Thorn Birds or Beulah Land. She evokes the era of the British slave trade within a tangled and haunting tale of forbidden love that truly touches the heart and mind.
Bristol merchant Josiah Cole
The forbidden passion that develops into a strong love goes against everything Frances has been raised to believe in, but there's no denying the power of what is between them. The sacrifices they both make to keep their love a secret and the ultimate risk they take is so powerful and poignant that readers may well rate this Gregory's most powerful work. (Touchstone, Feb., 500 pp., $15.00)
