ABOUT THE BOOK
Raina Bretton is a rag woman in London's east end when a handsome stranger appears in a dank alley and offers her a glittering smile and a chance for adventure. Rothburne Abbey has a unique position for her, one that will take her away from her hardscrabble life and give her a chance to be a lady. Things she could only dream of might be coming true. But some dreams turn out to be nightmares.
Though Raina has traded squalor for silk and satin, something about the abbey is deeply unsettling. As she wrestles with her true identity, the ruin, decay, and secrets she finds at the heart of the old mansion tear at her confidence and threaten to reveal her for who she really is. Only one man stands between her and the danger that lurks within--and only if he decides to keep her biggest secret hidden.
Is there truly a Lady Enderly? Inquiring minds want to know.
Readers you will just have to read this fascinating book with it's twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.
I was waiting on pins and Needles to see if Netgalley would approve and yay!! They did!! I finished this delightful book in one day!! Today in fact. That's just how good this story was well written.
I love this author's writing because I can tell from this book that it comes from the heart and I really believe that God has guided her to write this.
One such verse is SOS:6 (Song of Solomon) took me a few mins to figure this out because that usually a ship's distress signal.
I will say the hairs on the back of my neck kind of rose up a little cause I wasn't sure where this was leading.
I enjoyed this story from beginning to end. It's a sort of Cinderella tale from rags to riches and y'all know the rest.
Lady Enderly truly has a wonderful personality. I love it and I love her!! She's strong in her Faith until the end!! And that's a good thing! I felt like I could see a special glow whenever she was truly happy. I could sense her sorrow when she wasn't.
The shady characters like Victor Pendergast is what makes this story interesting. It seems like he just appears out of nowhere.
I think the true mystery is Sully. Now he really mystified me. His part in this story is real interesting.
But what it all boils down to nothing is really as it seems.
The best part about this book is hope. There's a wonderful messageat the end but I'll let you readers figure it out! Let me know if you do!!
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher with no compensations received. All opinions are my own!!
P. S. Be prepared to spend the whole day reading because you won't want to put it down!
