    Raven’s Bride

    by Elizabeth Crook

    In 1829, Sam Houston was the thirty-six-year-old governor of Tennessee whose marriage to twenty-year-old Eliza Allen seemed to form the perfect social foundation on which Houston would build his glittering career. But just eleven weeks after the wedding, Eliza suddenly and inexplicably left her new husband, creating a scandal that caused the governor to resign his office in disgrace and embark on an exile that would ultimately deliver him to Texas. Richly detailed and splendidly imagined, The Raven’s Bride turns a baffling historical conundrum into a complex and deeply affecting love story.
