Adds a welcome new dimension to the more standard depictions of the Regency era
By C D Kaye
The Barbary Coast, 1814. Perfect new female slaves are to be sent to the Sultan, imperfect ones the Dey of Algiers may add to his own harem. Beautiful, red-haired Sarah Campbell, daughter of Scottish missionaries and brought up in Polynesia, would be a welcome gift to any man. Corsair Captain Hassan Aziz encounters Captain Gerard Rochelle’s ship too late to prevent the murder of Sarah’s father but yields to the dying man’s plea to save his daughter from slavery by marrying her. Rochelle will not be thwarted and determines to re-capture this prize. American cousins Cora and Abigail have also ended up in the Dey’s harem, as have Irishwoman Tess and her daughter. The Dey is not unchanged by his encounters with these infidel women while Hassan Aziz has his own secrets. As Sarah struggles to come to terms with a new life far away from her beloved island, she finds herself threatened on all fronts.
The author does not balk at describing the absolute power of the Dey and the harsh regime of the harem, nor does she shut her eyes to the evils of the Barbary slave trade. All in all, she adds a welcome new dimension to the more standard depictions of the Regency era while cleverly weaving an intricate plot for her cast of characters. A Maiden’s Honor is subtitled Book 1, The Woman from Eden Series and I look forward to Book 2.
