    The House at the End of the Moor, by Michelle Griep, is a captivating novel made utterly enthralling by its hearty blend of action, suspense, adventure, faith, and romance. From the first sentence to the very last word, this historical fiction story is truly compelling. With unexpected twists and stunning surprises, this book absolutely entertains with immersive settings, unforgettable characters, and authentic moments of hope and redemption.

    From dank jail cells, to moors shrouded in mist, to forgotten neighborhoods, to opulent homes, Ms. Griep leads the reader through settings that are raw and memorable. And within these integral settings, she places complex characters that are resilient, believable, and resourceful. Though they often make decisions fueled by the traumas of their past, they still manage to hold on to hope while pursuing justice, forgiveness, restoration, and love.Even while shouldering the weight of undeserved accusations, they persevere and act with courageous self-sacrifice enabling them to discover the true value of freedom and grace.

    The House at the End of the Moor is a genuinely enticing tale, wholly unforgettable and inspiring. It is a remarkably worthy book that certainly deserves to be savored and then shared. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

    The House at the End of the Moor is a delight. Michelle Griep's thorough knowledge of the era and setting shows, drawing the reader in to follow her well-developed, deep characters as their lives intertwine. It's the kind of book you can't put down and are sad when their tale comes to an end. Well done, Michelle. Your book was such a pleasure to read.

    I very much enjoyed reading The House at the End of the Moor by Michelle Griep. She writes using delightfully appropriate metaphors, thus helping me to visualize the action easily. The two main characters, Maggie Lee and Oliver Ward, have some incredible experiences on their way to clearing their names of false information. In the process, they help several others to change and grow also.

    Good writing often causes emotional reactions in the reader. Thus I really disliked the attitudes and actions of the self-righteous Sebastion Barrow, the lecherous Ambrose Corbin, and the greedy Wendell Groat.

    Michelle Griep shows good use of the standard vocabulary of 1861, and I was delighted to have to look up the meanings of a few words. I like to learn new things. I highly recommend reading The House at the End of the Moor.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

    I am convinced that Michelle Griep cannot write anything less than a 5-star story. She is one of the truly exceptional authors who can draw readers into the world of her books so completely that everything else fades into the background and the reader walks alongside the characters. Historical fiction is my favorite genre to begin with, and Griep manages to elevate it to another level. Her prose is Dickensian, which is another reason that I love it so much, and it perfectly reflects the Victorian time period of her most recent novel, #The House at the End of the Moor.#

    Set in England in March 1861, the first two chapters are introductory, presenting the two primary characters. Chapter two opens with my favorite line in the book: #Nights like these, when the wind shivers the bones of the great old house, ghosts of my past waft about unmoored.# This is another favorite of mine: Griep*s ability to beautifully describe a scene in a way that seems old-fashioned but is nevertheless still entirely concise. In #The House at the End of the Moor#, Margaret #Maggie# Lee and Oliver Ward enter into each other*s world, and different though they appear, as the plot progresses, readers realize that they have more in common than they realize.

    Indeed, despite their many differences, Maggie and Oliver share something in common: both are running away. Maggie from her successful but emotionally distressing former career, and Oliver from a wrongful conviction. The conditions and ill treatment of Dartmoor Prison described in this book are appalling, but they are written respectfully and with sensitivity. Furthermore, this book contains a shifting narrative viewpoint between these two characters, with Oliver*s story told in the third-person and Maggie*s in the first-person. While this can be a challenging undertaking, it works well here. It distinguishes the two characters while simultaneously highlighting their similarities, both of which play an important role in the story. A sinister plot links them together, and with the enemy at the door, they must trust not only each but, above all, God, because He promises to be with us always and to never forsake us.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through Celebrate Lit and was not required to post a favorable review. All opinions are my own.

    Maggie Lee, the daughter of a bookshop owner, was hiding a secret. She had changed her name to Mrs. Dosset to hide her identity as she moved to Morden Hall. The house was located at the end of the moor. She decided it was best to be away from society for the time being.

    She had lost her mother years ago and had become estranged from her father when she left the city and fled to the moor. She kept company with a mute housekeeper, Nora, and her butler, Dobbs.

    They lived a quiet life out on the moor until one day when Nora found a badly wounded stranger on the moor. Maggie had Nora help her bring him in to treat him to keep him from dying. It was not long before a prison guard named Barrow came in search of the injured man. Life was not the same from that moment as they set out on an adventure that could end in the death of all of them.
