Set in Restoration England this book is a swash-buckling adventure. Meriel "Merry" St. Thomas, orphaned servant is an identical double for the Felice, Countess of Warborough. The Countess is the a cold-hearted, unfaithful wife of Lord Giles, a naval hero. Lady Felice is also a spy for the Dutch. The King's spymaster, William Chiffinch seeing the resemblance forces Merry to impersonate Lady Felice and become a pawn in his plans.

Jeane Westin takes the reader into the intrigues of the Restoration court. She does an excellent job of incorporating real historical persons, King Charles II and The Countess of Castlemaine, into the story. She also explores the class differences between Lord Giles and Merry. Although the ending is predictable, it a fast pace story of espionage, battles and court intrigue. ( )
