By virtue of her profession as a midwife, Tabitha Eckles is the keeper of many secrets. Dominick Cherrett is a man with his own secret to keep: namely, why he, a British aristocrat, is on American soil working as an indentured servant.
In a time when relations between America and England rest on the edge of a knife, Tabitha and Dominick cross paths, leading them on a journey of intrigue, threats, public disgrace, and . . . love. But can Tabitha trust Dominick? Finding true love seems impossible in a world set against them.
With stirring writing that draws you directly into the story, Lady in the Mist takes you on the thrilling ride of love’s discovery.
Yesterday I received a new book by new-to-me author Laurie Alice Eakes from another publisher I love Barbour Books – Jersey Brides, one of their Romancing America series and right now I cannot be anymore delighted to see it as I have just finished reading my first book from this author in Lady in the Mist from Revell Books and I loved it. Although I have a qualm with the cover not appearing to look like the woman described (hello, widow’s peak anyone?) the writing through out was entertaining and captivating!
I could hardly put this one down, toddler and all. Post Revolutionary War and on a strong independent female character is not a setting often seen in my genre and I loved it. The characters were all real to life and the mystery was fun to follow and try to pick up what were who’s motives and so on. Laurie has a great story in this book and definitely look forward to more in the Midwives Series as well as other publications from her pen as well.
*Thank you to Revell Books for providing a copy for review.*
