Item Description...
Born into affluence, Mia Stanley is a winsome socialite with a knack for matchmaking. She's also a writer for Godey's Lady's Book magazine, much to the disdain of her family--and their society friends. A proper young lady of her social standing isn't meant to labor in such a way, but Mia has always had a way with words?

When her writing draws her into the world of downtrodden seamen's wives on Philadelphia's docks, Mia uncovers a scheme that puts her in harm's way. But her heart ends up on the line as well?. Has her determination to always make a match driven away the one man whose esteem she covets?

Tracie Peterson
Read by Judith West
Judith West gives a polished performance depicting Mia Stanley, a young woman from a wealthy and influential Philadelphia family. Mia comes to believe she's a born matchmaker, but she can't find a romantic interest of her own. So she launches a journalism career instead. West captures her family's dismay, and Mia's resentment, when her father orders her to stop writing for Godey's Ladies Book. She adeptly depicts Mia's shock and concern after visiting seaman's wives on the Philadelphia docks and learning of their victimization: physical and sexual abuse, even their children being sold for bad debts. With clarity of narration, textured characterizations, and cultural authenticity, West brings to life Mia's ensuing fight for higher wages, reduced hours, and the return of the seaman's children.

Enjoyable read.  Jan 1, 2008
LADY OF HIGH REGARD follows Mia Stanley, the daughter of a wealthy Philadelphia family. Set in a time when social classes did not cross lines, Mia finds herself on a mission to help woman that are less fortunate than her, many who are seaman's wives being abused in their husband's absence . When she finds out these women are being forced to pay higher rents and bogus debits, she does some investigating. When Garrett, the boy next door and her lifelong friend sees her sneaking out of the house one night, he follows her, only to be horrified that she's gone to the docks to get more information about the seaman's wives. What starts out as brotherly protection, Garrett soon realizes his feelings for Mia have turned to love. He decides to do some of his own investigating into the corrupt behavior of one man, hoping Mia will obey her parents and leave the matter to someone more suitable. Mia, the consummate matchmaker, tries to get Garrett paired off so he will have less time to concern himself with her dangerous late night rendezvous. When it appears Garrett has found someone else, the idea of him no longer being around stings Mia's feelings. She too, realizes she is in love with him, but feels it is too late to tell him the truth.
Even though I'm not a fan of period pieces, I enjoyed LADY OF HIGH REGARD. The setting took a backseat to the story. I liked that TRACIE PETERSON set the tone of the book with the restrictions put on ladies at that time, but allowed tenacious Mia to be the moderate rebel, only wanting to right the wrongs of those less fortunate than herself. Of course, we had to wait until the end of the book to see if Garrett and Mia would reveal their true feelings for each other, but it was worth the wait.
An enjoyable story that makes you think.   Oct 18, 2007
Mia Stanley is a woman whose heart is bigger than her common sense. Mia is a writer for Godey's Lady's Book magazine during a time where it was frowned upon to be a working woman. Mia's heart and her writings lead her to the rougher part of town. Seamen's wives were being taken advantage of, and Mia made it her personal mission to makes sure they were treated fairly.

Tracie Peterson has her readers traveling to 1800's Philadephia, where there is adventure, danger, and very lovable characters. She also provides depth and has each of her readers thinking about what their role should be in helping people less fortunate.

A Lady of High Regard is the first book in the Ladies of Liberty series. This book is an enjoyable read, I finished it in one weekend and look forward to more.

She has also written the nonfiction book I Can't Do It All: Breaking Free from the Lies That Control Us with (Boomer Babes Rock!) Allison Bottke & Dianne O'Brian.

Can't go wrong with a Peterson book  Sep 5, 2007
I'm so glad that Tracie has started a new series. She has a great knack for bringing up social issues of the day (1800's). The women of Tracie's stories go against the social norm. They don't just want to see change, they do something about it.

Mia is one of those women. She sees how the seamen's families are being treated and sets out to find an answer. In the mean time, she makes an enemy. On the flip side of the coin, Mia loves playing matchmaker with her family and friends. At 24, most would be considered old maids, but because of her position and her beauty no one seems to give it a second thought. Her next match up is going to be for her best friend, Garrett. They've been friends since she was born. What they don't realize at the beginning of the story is that they are falling in love with each other. This story watches their journey towards each other...maybe. Just as you think one of them is about to share their feelings, something happens! You just want to shake your book, though you know the wait is going to be worth it.

Tracie can blend romance, history, and excitement into any novel. She has numerous books written on her own and with other authors and each one is worth the read!
