One final cry…“God almighty, help us!” and suddenly her world shifted violently, until a blinding collision scattered her mind and shook her bones. Then, the pain. The freezing water. And as all sensation drifted away, a hand reached for hers, before all faded into darkness…
Now she has awakened as though from some strange, suffocating dream in a warm and welcoming room she has never seen before, and tended to by kind, unfamiliar faces. But not all has been swept away. She recalls fragments of the accident. She remembers a baby. And a ring on her finger reminds her of a lie.
But most of all, there is a secret. And in this house of strangers she can trust no one but herself to keep it.
MY INITIAL REACTION:
Loved it! Julie Klassen writes excellent historical fiction novels. I have read them all, and this one ranks up there as one of my new favorites! It has LOTS of plot twists, as well as romance, historical details, and mystery that one comes to expect with Klassen’s books.
If you like Downton Abbey, Jane Eyre, and/or Jane Austen, you will enjoy this book!
A longer review will be posted by the end of this week, but I wanted to let you know that Lady Maybe is being released on JULY 7, 2015 by Berkley. If you haven’t ordered it already, do so now!
Her next book, The Painter’s Daughter, will be published by Bethany House on December 1, 2015.
