Laurie Alice Eakes in her new book, “A Lady's Honor book coverA Lady’s Honor” Book One in the Cliffs Of Cornwall series published by Zondervan brings us into the life of Elizabeth Trelawny.

From the back cover:  On the cliffs of 19th-century Cornwall, a spirited, impetuous young woman is torn between the honor of her family and the longing of her heart.

England, 1811

A tarnished reputation. A distant home. A forced engagement to a dangerous man. When Elizabeth Trelawny flees London, she has more than one reason to run. And when her carriage, pursued by her would-be fiancé, is caught in a storm, she quickly accepts the help of a dark stranger. Anything to get back to Cornwall.

But Rowan Curnow is not exactly a stranger. He’s not quite a gentleman either. Class disparity once kept him from courting Elizabeth . . . even if it didn’t keep him from kissing her.

The couple elude their pursuers and reach Bastion Point, Elizabeth’s future inheritance and the one place she calls home. But in the very act of spiriting her to safety, Rowan has jeopardized Elizabeth’s inheritance—if her grandfather ever learns she spent the night, however innocently, in the company of a man.

When smugglers unite the pair in a reckless, flirtatious alliance—an alliance that both challenges the social norms Elizabeth has been raised to revere and rattles Rowan’s fledgling faith in God. Elizabeth must choose between the obedience of a child and the desires of a woman: cling to the safety of her home or follow the man she loves.

What are you going to do when you are in London and being set up for an arranged marriage to a much older man? You take off and run for your family home in Cornwall. However when all does not go according to plan Elizabeth meets up with Rowan who helps her but also may have caused her to lose her inheritance. “A Lady’s Honor” is a wonderful romance filled with mystery, intrigue, and scandal.  These pages are filled with wonderful characters that live and breathe.   “A Lady’s Honor” is full of reputation, finding yourself, finding your place in the world and romance.  This is an interesting story filled with lots of excitement and romance as well as history.  I liked it a lot.
