""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.

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.

A good read for a freebie. I'd recommend this Book.
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!
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.Read more ›
