A Lady in Disguise
Four out of Five
A Lady in Disguise was as much of an entertaining read as Mist of Midnight, which I enjoyed immensely.
Springtime in Victorian England of 1883 finds Gillian Young has become an orphan in her mid-twenties. Her father, a policeman, has recently died in an accident—or so Gilliam assumes—until small pieces of evidence start appearing.
Lord Thomas Lockwood steps into her life. Gillian has not seen him since childhood and he seems to want to draw closer to her. She feels the same way but is unsure who to trust as events in her life unfold, leaving her uncertain who to turn to.
There are many things I could say about this story. The writing is creative, enduring at times, and full of suspense. After a few chapters I found myself not trusting any of the characters! This made for a delightful read. I could list a number of quotes from this novel but one of my favorites is, ‘The Lord may care for the birds of the air, but He does not drop food into their nests. Each of us must carry part of the load.’
Thanks, Sandra Byrd, for a marvelous book!
I received a complimentary copy of this book to review.
