As a midwife, Tabitha Eckles, the woman at the center of Laurie Alice Eakes’ new book, Lady in the Mist, (ISBN: 978-0-8007-3452-7, February 2011, $14.99) knows the most intimate secrets of the women and families she cares for. While the women in town are drawn to her warmth and caring ways, the men are wary at best.My Review:
In the little town of Seabourne, Virginia where Tabitha Eckles lives, another standoff is brewing. It is 1809 and relations between America and England rest on the edge of a knife, when Tabitha crosses paths on the beach one morning with a man named Dominick Cherrett. He seems to have his own secrets to keep, including why he, a British aristocrat, is on American soil working as an indentured servant.
One chance meeting leads these two secret keepers through a twisted path of kidnappings, death threats, and public disgrace. Can Tabitha trust Dominick? What might he be hiding? And can either of them find true love in a world that seems set against them?
When I first saw this book, I really thought I was going to like it based on the cover and the description. The cover is really pretty.
Unfortunately, this has not been one of my fave books. It wasn't bad or had bad content but just couldn't keep my attention. The story itself seemed like a good story line - I just wished the author would have gotten to the end a lot sooner.
With that said, I did think it was interesting story line for an indentured servant to work in America. I have never read a Fiction book that focuses on such a story line.
Some of the content is harsh therefore in my opinion not suitable for children or young eyes.Blessings to you. You are loved.
