mary's book basket ~ "lady in the mist" by laurie alice eakes

Product Description:
By virtue of her profession as a midwife, Tabitha Eckles is the keeper of many secrets: the names of fathers of illegitimate children, the level of love and harmony within many a marriage, and now the identity of a man who may have caused his wife's death. Dominick Cherrett is a man with his own secret to keep: namely, what he, a British nobleman, is doing on American soil working as a bondsman in the home of Mayor Kendall, a Southern gentleman with his eye on a higher office.
By chance one morning before the dawn has broken, Tabitha and Dominick cross paths on a misty beachhead, leading them on a twisted path through kidnappings, death threats, public disgrace, and . . . love? 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?
With stirring writing that puts readers directly into the story, Lady in the Mist expertly explores themes of identity, misperception, and love's discovery.

I love a well written Regency Historical. They are usually filled with barons and balls, social intrigue and class conflict. Lady In The Mist is NOT your average Regency. Author Laurie Alice Eakes tells the story of two "average" citizens. It is a tale of redemption and it was one I had a hard time putting down. Tabitha is a woman of grace and strength whose only desire is to help the sick and assist in bringing new life into the world. Dominick is a man on a mission. He is trying to restore his name and reputation while exposing the truth behind politically motivated kidnappings.

This book has got it all. True love, mystery, political intrigue, grace and redemption. It takes place at a time of great unrest in our country. It is a book that you will want to read then read again. 

So get to it!

Happy Reading!
