Elizabeth Rutledge By TheInsensibleLizzie Completed

She never wanted anything more than to be loved, but providence had something else in store for the young Beatrice Fisher. Orphaned and then adopted by the Lee Family of Virginia, she looked to have a life filled with happiness, but when her friend Nathan Hale steps back into her life and the taxes spark the battles of Lexington and Concord, her life will never be the same. She finds herself at the epicenter of the British Empire when she agrees to spy for the Continental Commander George Washington and is almost swept off her feet by the handsome and charming John André. Her adventures don't cease with the Battle of Yorktown. Thrown back into regular life with haunting images of her past, Bea finds herself needing to settle down. With her dear friends embroiled in politics, Bea finds herself in a dizzying waltz in a brand new world filled with new faces and excitement, but can she find the one thing she wants most of all? Can she find love amid the scandal and frightening pace of her new life or will her greatest nightmare of being unloved and alone finally be realized?

This is really well written.
                              And knowing that one of the characters name is also Beatrice is just, good?

I do like the first paragraph but it would help to speak like she is in 1804

Can't remember exactly how I find this, but I can't wait to start reading it (the description is very intriguing!)
