Lady in the Mist

The Midwives-Book 1
by Laurie Alice Eakes
Revell Publishing

"By virtue of her profession as a midwife, Tabitha Eckles is the keeper of many secrets. Dominick Cherrett is a man with his own secret to keep: namely, why he, a British aristocrat, is on American soil working as an indentured servant.  In a time when relations between America and England rest on the edge of a knife, Tabitha and Dominick cross paths, leading them on a journey of intrigue, threats, public disgrace, and . . . love. But can Tabitha trust Dominick? Finding true love seems impossible in a world set against them."

I enjoy reading books about midwives.  Although I was dissapointed that there was a lot of actual midwifery in the book.  The book gives bits and pieces of various secrets, but you do not know them until near the end of the book which is nice for suspense purposes.  The chapters go back and forth between the main characters which can be good but confusing as well.

I am looking forward to reading more of Eakes' books especially in her Midwives series.

*I was sent a free copy of this book to read and review.  I am not compensated for my honest review.
