The truth could cost her everything. . .
Olivia Mott didn't intend to lie. Somehow, it just happened. And wasn't it all Lady Charlotte's fault anyway?
Now Olivia's position as assistant chef at Pullman's elegant Hotel Florence is dependant upon her keeping her secrets. And sometimes lies have a way of leading to other lies. Should Olivia admit her real past and accept the consequences or keep quiet in order to preserve her comfortable new circumstances?
Deception seems to be part of everyday life in the company town of Pullman, Illinois, where the grand Pullman Palace Car is manufactured. Samuel Howard, Olivia's friend and the town manager, seems to think everything is fine, but Olivia observes something quite different. Could it be that Olivia is not the only one harboring secrets?
"An excellent story, full of cliff-hanging crises for the heroine, a young woman having to fend for herself in a new environment during the Victorian Age. She succeeds against the background of Pullman, the 'perfect' town built in the 1880s for workers of George Pullman's Pullman Palace Car Company, builder of luxurious passenger train cars. This innovative community, although not the utopia it was purported to be at the time, was a major player very important to the history of the United States during the Industrial Age. Although the tale is fictional, Miller's research into the real town is a job well done, and I found much pleasure in reading the well-named In the Company of Secrets. At the end, this talented author even hinted of 'Mr. Ashton's business card,' leaving this reader eager to continue on to the second volume in its series of three."
