My Review

True Nobilty, by Lori Bates Wright, is the first book in The Saberton Legacy series. Abounding with surprises and unexpected twists, this novel is thoroughly entertaining. Well-written and thoughtfully composed from start to finish, this book is a pleasure to read. With a satisfying blend of romance, history, and mystery, True Nobility is very compelling and enjoyable.

True Nobility features an intriguingly rich plot that is extremely clever and character-driven. This novel creatively explores the themes of deception, love, redemption, honor, and courage through a varied cast of captivating characters who are vividly developed and truly likable. Their motivations, fears, desires, and choices carry significant purpose and meaning. Also integral to the story is the historic Savannah, Georgia setting. Often just as noteworthy and memorable as the characters themselves, Savannah and its fully detailed surroundings provide a striking backdrop for the majority of the novel’s most powerful scenes.

True Nobility is a story of faith, forgiveness, trust, and truth. Strengthened by Ms. Wright’s richly descriptive style and attention to historical detail, this book is truly satisfying and engaging. The romance and mystery within this novel are certainly elements worthy of being savored. True Nobility is thoughtful, emotionally stirring, and ultimately uplifting. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Publisher’s Description: 

“They say confession is good for the soul.  But, revealing too much could prove deadly.

When devoted governess, Abigail McFadden, discovers her charge has run off to join the Union army on his fourteenth birthday, her impetuous decision to go after him catapults her behind enemy lines and into a life-changing fight for survival.

Failing to locate the boy, Abby is stranded in Confederate Georgia with no means to get home. After taking a nursing position in Macon's confederate hospital, she comes under suspicion as a union spy. Her only consolation is the work she does outside of the hospital walls in a shanty town of unwanted orphans.

Confederate Officer, Ian Saberton, a theological graduate of Yale, is thrust into war and forced to choose sides. His greatest struggle becomes a fight for his soul as his faith and deep convictions are put to the test.

When Sherman advances on Atlanta, Ian is sent to prepare his home state for enemy invasion. Headquartered in Macon, he encounters a town full of civilians oblivious to the imminent danger bearing down on them. He and his men must see the city secured, while avoiding a passel of matchmaking socialites determined to see him married.

When Abby is brought up on false charges and scheduled to be hanged, she has no choice but to trust the handsome Confederate officer who offers the only way of escape.

But will deep secrets pitting them on opposite sides destroy the fragile bond between them?”
