“Not only is this a delightful regency romance but it is also suspense filled mystery of the very best kind.” ~ Amazon review

“The author did a great job, maybe too great a job, describing the slave scenes. Spine tingling and suspenseful. I was biting my nails throughout much of this book.” ~ Amazon review

Plagued by nightmares, Annette yearns to find her anonymous rescuer — the man who saved her life from a near deadly assault. Deep inside she is starving for companionship and a mutually respectful relationship. When Mr. Peter Adsley, an abolitionist pastor dealing with his own emotional baggage, agrees to a clandestine meeting, the event appears providential. But self-doubt, deception, and the schemes of a mutual enemy threaten to keep the pair apart. A phantom adversary will stop at nothing to win Annette’s dowry for himself, even if it means killing Peter.

My thoughts:

A book full of twists, turns and unexpected outcomes.

This book takes you on a journey that is at times delightful and others times chilling.

The picture of the slave trade that is painted is horrifying and, I have no doubt, too real.

Annette is a strong young woman, who has some high expectations, but she won’t settle and I respected that about her.

Peter wants to do the right thing, what struggles with what that is, what is God leading him to do?

This is definitely a Genesis 5020, God used things that could harm our characters for good. I will be reviewing the second book in a couple of days. Stay turned!
