Local author Mary Hart Perry visits Greetings & Readings for a book signing on Saturday, September 22 from 1 to 3 p.m.

The Wild Princess: A Novel of Queen Victoria's DaughtersFour of the five daughters of England's Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were regal, genteel, and everything a princess should be. But one was rebellious, scandalous, and untamed. This is her story.

To the court and subjects of Queen Victoria, young Princess Louise - later the Duchess of Argyll - was the "Wild One." Proud and impetuous, she fought the constraints placed on her and her brothers and sisters, dreamed of becoming an artist, and broke with a three-hundred-year-old tradition by marrying outside of the privileged circle of European royals. Some said she wed for love. Others whispered of a scandal covered up by the Crown.

It will take a handsome American, recruited by the queen's elite Secret Service, to discover the truth. But even as Stephen Byrne - code name the Raven - vows to risk his life to protect the royal family from violent Irish radicals, he tempts Louise with a forbidden love that could prove just as dangerous.

In the vein of Philippa Gregory, Mary Hart Perry tells the riveting story of an extraordinary woman - a princess who refused to give up on her dreams, including her right to true love.

Mary Hart Perry lives in Maryland with her two cats and husband. She teaches at the Writer's Center in Washington, D.C., and is an inspiring speaker for international and regional groups interested in the joys of writing and history and the promotion of teen and adult literacy.
