Product Description

From the Back Cover

""Lady in the Mist" brims with tension, intrigue, and romance."--Julie Klassen, bestselling author of "The Silent Governess" and "The Girl in the Gatehouse
"
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.
With stirring writing that draws you directly into the story, "Lady in the Mist" takes you on the thrilling ride of love's discovery.
"I loved, loved, loved this book. It grabbed me by the heart and held on."--Lena Nelson Dooley, author of "Love Finds You in Golden, New Mexico
"
"Secrets, suspense, and a sweetly told love story make this a highly rewarding read."--Cheryl Bolen, Holt Medallion-winning author of "One Golden Ring
"

About the Author

Midwives' historic role in society began to fascinate Laurie Alice Eakes in graduate school. Before she was serious about writing fiction, she knew she wanted to write novels with midwife heroines. Ten years, several published novels, four relocations, and a National Readers Choice Award for Best Regency later, the midwives idea returned, and Lady in the Mist was born. Now she writes full time from her home in Texas, where she lives with her husband and sundry dogs and cats.

Having seen one too many young men disappear into the mist on British ships, Tabitha Eckles has resigned herself to a solitary life. As a respected midwife, she's the one woman in her town who can walk unaccompanied in the middle of the night without having rumours whispered about her. Unfortunately, her comfortable and quiet life is interrupted during one of these long, midnight walks. Returning from a birthing that went terribly wrong, Tabitha finds herself alone on the beach in the company of a mysterious English man, whom Tabitha suspects may be involved in the press-gangings that have been becoming ever more present in their peaceful costal town. But it's not long before Tabitha discovers the identity of this mysterious yet charming young man - he's Domonick Cherrett, an English gentleman who has fallen from grace and is now indentured servant and butler to Tabitha's mayor. Knowing that an indentured servant would never be allowed to wander the beach at night, Tabitha remains suspicious a she pursues a friendship with Dominick, who has reasons of his own for wanting to become involved with the town midwife. Soon these two unlikely friends become embroiled in more mysteries than they expected - and an unexpected romance begins to bud between the spinster midwife and indentured English nobleman. Matters are complicated further when Tabitha's long-lost fiancé returns from the sea and Dominick finds himself struggling over whether he could go home to his family with Tabitha or if he should leave her to her simple life in America - or whether he actually wishes to return to England at all. Can Tabitha and Dominick put aside their preconceived ideas about love and rank and - more importantly - learn to trust each other?Read more ›

I enjoyed this book, it is written about a time where faith in God is at the heart of a community. A well written book, that came to an obvious conclusion. It could however have been a few chapters shorter as I felt it lost its way a little in the middle.

A good read for a freebie. I'd recommend this Book.

I really enjoyed this Christian period romance, The charectors were really interesting, especially the midwives role, during this period in history. The book held me captive throughout, with its twists and turns, in the plot. I would be happy to recommend this book, and am looking forward to her next.

I wanted to enjoy this book, but the ever present 'spiritual' content really put me off. Why was it needed? Can we not just have a good story without this strange and constant interruption of the plot in order to push the bible and spiritual stuff down our throats?
Not for me, a shame cos I bet if it had left out all the clap trap I would have been able to stick with it and enjoy it, but it was just too much!

Format: Paperback
My second read by Laurie Alice Eakes and the first title in her trilogy The Midwives has romance, intrigue, mystery and a cast of colourful characters. The writing style and short chapters make it an easy read, and which I found quite compelling once I began to get into the story.
In some places story did drag and could be repetitive, perhaps it was a result of inexperience being the author’s first full length novel, but it could have been wrapped up sooner and been shorter.
Also, I think that some of Tabbie and especially Dominick's behavour would have been considered inappropriate and flirtatious in the extreme for an unmarried or not formally courting couple of the time, yet they seemed to sometimes wonder why people objected.

The War of 1812 and its preliminaries is a subject that receives a fair amount of attention in Christian Historical fiction- especially since the 2011 release of this novel was approaching the bicentenary. The author provided an original ‘spin’ on the subject matter in some ways, with a heroine whose work and connections bought her close the action, and perhaps something of the ‘other side’ with the British hero Dominick, as well as questioning the view that impressment was the official policy of the country he represented.

That said, a major complaint I have with not only this story but those set in this period in general is how they make out impressment alone caused the war- or the threat of war in this book. No mention made of the invasion of Canada or the policies and activities ‘war hawks’ in the American government. If anyone wanted war it may have been them, not the British.
