Product Description

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?

Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

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.

    This book was a little different that I have read. But the author is not new to me. I am a retired RN so this series caught my eye.

    It shows God hand of protection and His forgiveness. The people in the story showed the same struggles we have today even though dated back in the 1800's. God knows our questions and our feelings and is willing to forgive. He also

    knows our desires. Starting book 2 in the series and am looking forward to more about some of the same characters.

    Lady in the Mist is a enjoyable look in the world of being a midwife. Although a bit unconventional because almost all midwives were married or widows and our heroine was not, I still found the story overall entertaining and well written.

    I do have to admit that it did take me a while to warm up to Dominic and I wish that there was just a bit more adventure/action within the story but those were just minor things.

    Not many historical romances can capture my attention the way this book had. From the first page to the very last I devoured each word. Beautifully written and capturing the true heart of early America, I felt myself being drawn into that time. Historical facts were accurate, but not the center of the book. The emotions and the growth of the main characters developed in such a natural and soft pace.

    I eagerly look forward to the next two books!

    Laurie Alice Eakes has become an author to populate my book shelves. Well DONE!!

    Tabitha Eckles is a midwife in colonial America. Her fiancé had been pressed into the British navy a couple years before the story starts, leaving Tabitha as an oddity: an unmarried midwife who has never given birth. Her parents had died not long before, so she's reeling from everyone she's loved having "deserted" her.

    Early one misty morning Tabbie is walking along the beach after the death of an expectant mother. She meets a tall Englishman, Dominick Cherrett, who is the mayor's indentured servant. Considering the fact that young American men are disappearing from the coastline, kidnapped by the British to join the navy, she jumps to the obvious conclusion that Dominick is an accomplice. If only Dominick, the younger son of a British aristocrat, could explain the real reason he's here.

    Lady in the Mist is a historical romance novel with themes of desertion and the discovery of God's presence, no matter what. I enjoyed the novel and found the story pulled me along. Ms. Eakes managed to leave many chapters with gripping endings that made me turn the page (on my Kindle) even when I should have been in bed.

    Laurie Alice Eakes is a great storyteller. She places trouble after trouble in Tabitha's path to be allowed to follow the occupation of her mother and grandmother. She has heard secrets from mothers-to-be in the pain of delivering a child. Tabitha has never revealed those secrets. She could use some of these secrets to shame men sitting on the town council that reviews her case for continuing to be a midwife. Will she do that or risk being run out of town?. Then there's Dominick and a former beau that has re-entered her life that she must consider for her future. Strong characterization and setting description. A page turner.
