    One thought on “Through a Gold Eagle”

    1. This series is compelling, growing more intimate and powerful with each book. I like that the heroine isn't a wilting violet who hides in her drawing room. Instead, she's an unmarried lady by choice who is actively helping women who have been beaten or discarded by their husbands. In those days, a woman lost all rights to her property as soon as she married. This meant that a man could marry a woman, inherit her estate including her family home upon the death of her parents, and then dessert the [...]

    2. A fun read. It's one of a series of a murder mysteries set in Seneca Falls, NY. The spirited and independent librarian heroine meets John Brown, toys with romance, and tracks down counterfeiters in this installment. More engaging than the first 3 in the series although all are fun. This one delves a bit more deeply into history.

    3. Historical fiction that actually teaches a few things. I am enjoying this series by Miriam Grace Monfredo.

    4. I keep reading this series because I love Monfredo's attention to detail. She paints such a rich portrait of time and place that you really get the "you are there" feeling. I also like the Glynis Tryon character and the mystery in this one is quite good. Learning about the huge counterfeit problem that existed in the U.S. during the time covered in the novel was interesting. The reason I only give it 3 stars is because Monfredo tries to cover too many story lines and it gets more than a bit dist [...]

    5. As with the others in this series, this is interesting on many levels. The characters themselves are three dimensional (for the most part - I still can't figure out the attraction to the main male in the series, other than that he is a constable and, therefore, serves the function of getting the main character close to the action) and the very human glimpse into an historical event. This book covers John Brown and Harper's Ferry in a tender way, through the eyes of John Brown's daughter, Annie.

    6. This one was interesting on a couple of levels. Fascinating duscussion on counterfeiting money in the 1850s and how just about everybody was doing it.Also blends in John Brown and his family and the attack on Harpers Ferry. Takes into consideration that his family was just about destitute and hopping to his every command.

    7. My shelves need some revamping, since I have no category for historical mysteries. I am still enjoying this series, though one wonders how long the relationship between Glynis and Cullen can go on. They're starting to bicker as if they were married, although it's understandable why Glynis doesn't want to lose the few rights and the life she leads by tying the knot.

    8. HB-B @ 1996, 2/99. Seneca Falls Historical Mystery, Book 4. Counterfeiting in Seneca Falls, NY in 1859; murder, antislavery, abolitionist sentiments and John Brown's uprising at Harpers Ferry Virginia. Very good.

    9. This is great; I love the historical references! However, like most murder series, they're coming quite predictible. I guess we read them for the fun of it though!

    10. Really enjoyed this series. Had to order them on-line as unable to find this author in stores, even the major bookstores.

    11. This book had a very surpring climax between the heroine and the villian, but was fairly ordinary otherwise.

    12. Excellent mystery series. Uses John Brown's daughter's diary as part of backdrop for additional insight into John Brown. Fascinating.
