He meets Lisa Crisp, an intelligent, sharp-witted, but penniless orphan, under very strange circumstances. She is a woman who fights against poverty by offering her services to the poor. At a wedding that they both attend, Henri makes Lisa an unusual offer, but she accepts it and thus begins a romantic tale that will transport readers to the heights of delight and keep them mesmerized.
The novel is well-written and its unabashed emotion, coupled with the unexpected plot turns, will have readers' eyes filled with tears of joy. Lucinda Brant injects a lot of humanity into her characters and readers can easily connect to them. The novel offers very subtle lessons in the art of love and hope, opening readers' hearts to the mystery of attraction and how true love can transform one’s destiny. Satyr’s Son: A Georgian Historical Romance features a great plot, fast-paced and intricately woven with surprises that no one would see coming.
