Rich A Crown
young women from three
different parts of the world meet in Williamsburg, Virginia in the early
1700's and become best friends, eventually sharing their most precious
secrets with one another. Although they were young when they met, all
three had already lived adventures most women never experience in a
lifetime. In those adventures of life, each woman finds herself with the
burden of a secret that could cost her everything. Their lives, loves
and children could be gone in the whisper of a secret. After years of
devoted friendship, the women share their secrets with one another,
promising to be the guardian of each other's lives. Sarah shares her
secret first...she is an escaped criminal from an English prison ship.
Her crime...she stole a handful of the crown jewels from the King's
bedroom. Christina tells of being an escaped member of the family of
Peter the Great, Czar of all Russia. Abbey, the young widow of a
suicide victim, reveals that the father of her child is not the husband
of her youth but a man she has long loved. Although he is himself a
widower, years of rumors that Abbey killed his wife, and perhaps even
his own mother, leaves him unable to respond to any gesture of love she
makes towards him. Abbey knows, if he finds out that she has kept his
son away from him, for the boy's entire life, he might contemplate
killing her himself.
Sarah is threatened by
an outsider who knows who she is, she blackmails her best friends to
keep her own secret safe. They pay her off, but she is soon found
murdered. Abbey is arrested. Christina suddenly decides to go back to
Europe and Matthew Townsend is to be Abbey's attorney charged with the
responsibility of saving her life. As the story progresses, there are
times when Abbey wonders if Matthew is out to save her or to hang her.

left she shared everyone's secrets with Matthew, including Abbey's.

shared with one another and also reveals the secrets of yet another
family which leads to the true killer.

secrets are fully explored in this novel, giving each character the
