A Woman of Entitlement
by Mary Ann Kerr
She'd returned home, in the spring of 1868, full of plans, but her father had chosen a man for her. No coming out ball, no debutante parties, she was to give up everything she'd dreamed about. Betrothed to a lawyer ten years her senior, she didn't even know him.
Raised in elegance, sent to the best boarding schools money could buy, Liberty Bouvier finds herself a bargaining chip to keep her father out of debtor's prison. Married off, to a complete stranger, the despicable Armand Bouvier, Libby is released from her commitment by his untimely death. Cut entirely out of her murdered husband's will, except for an unknown property in California, Liberty Bouvier is faced with the unknown.
With the help of God and Elijah Humphries, her lawyer, Liberty travels west—to flee her evil father's greed—with her maid, turned friend, Maggie O'Neill. The two women encounter much before their journey's end. Meanwhile, there are questions to be answered. Chief Inspector George Baxter and Elijah Humphries join forces to find Bouvier's murderer, and a hidden secret is discovered.
Liberty's Inheritance is the first in the A Woman of Entitlement series. Join author Mary Ann Kerr in her tale of deceit, murder, love, grace, and—ultimately—freedom.
