Lady in the Mist (#01 in Midwives Series)

Also Available In
By virtue of her profession as a midwife, Tabitha Eckles is the keeper of many secrets: the names of fathers of illegitimate children, the level of love and harmony within many a marriage, and now the identity of a man who may have caused his wife's death. Dominick Cherrett is a man with his own secret to keep: namely, what he, a British nobleman, is doing on American soil working as a bondsman in the home of Mayor Kendall, a Southern gentleman with his eye on a higher office.

By chance one morning before the dawn has broken, Tabitha and Dominick cross paths on a misty beachhead, leading them on a twisted path through kidnappings, death threats, public disgrace, and ... love? Can Tabitha trust Dominick? What might he be hiding? And can either of them find true love in a world that seems set against them?

With stirring writing that puts readers directly into the story, Lady in the Mist expertly explores themes of identity, misperception, and love's discovery.

Action packed
4 stars By Louise, Jan 11 2013
Lovely historical romance set in the early 1800's. lots of action although I got a bit lost with some lengthy and at times repetitive descriptions of the dilemmas the characters were facing. Over all I enjoyed the book and will read the sequels.

Excellent read
5 stars By Audrey, Dec 27 2012
I really enjoyed reading this book. The moral of the story where very consistent and had me thinking of my own attitude towards God when things happen in my life.
This was the first time that I have read a book by this author and I definitely will search for more of her books. In fact the sequals to this book look equally interesting and I would love to read them as well.
