Travel along with Elise Finster and her British mistress, Lady Anne Stone, as they search for the new but missing earl of Stoneford. Determined to follow David Stone’s somewhat cold trail leading to Oregon, greenhorns Elise and Anne secure livestock and supplies to join a wagon train. Will the ladies succeed in their quest or succumb to the malfeasance of the mysterious man dogging their heels? Scout Eb Bentley’s initial disgust with these ill-prepared women eventually turns into admiration for one lady in particular. Can he protect her long enough to win her over, or will prairie dreams turn into a Wild West nightmare?

Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Entertaining Story!November 23, 2015Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Lady Anne Stone's world shatters into a myriad of uncertainty when her father dies; her future appearing rather dire unless she can locate her beloved Uncle David who travelled to America, but has not communicated with his English family in quite some time. Her uncle is the rightful heir to her father's vast estate and is to be named the new Earl of Stonefield, if he can be located and convinced to return to England. Lady Anne and her personal maid, Elise Finster, bravely decide to travel to St. Louis, Missouri, David's last known location, only to learn that David Stone has apparently moved farther west to Oregon. Can two beautiful British ladies possibly endure the rigors of wagon train travel to find a man who may not ever be found?
Eb Bentley is determined that he is making his last trip to Oregon as a trail scout. He begrudgingly accepts the fact that the wagon master is going to allow two regal ladies and their trunks full of fripperies to accompany their group, but Anne and Elise are determined to prove everyone wrong. Interestingly, somewhere along the trail, the lady's maid and the wagon scout begin to blaze a trail all their own. If only there weren't so many complications.
What a fun way to travel West!
CindyNW IndianaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Book, But...September 8, 2015CindyNW IndianaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I thoroughly enjoyed "The Lady's Maid." Intriguing premise and plot; nice balance of adventure, suspense and romance; great historical detail which made the story all the more interesting. I am a stickler for good writing skills and Susan Page Davis did not disappoint in that regard, either. There is not much spiritual content for a "Christian" book, but at least it is a nice, clean book. My only real complaint, however, is that I felt I'd been "had" when I came to the end and discovered I had to buy the next book to find out the answer to the biggest question of the plot! I am sure this is a marketing ploy to sell more books (we see it more and more these days in books, movies, etc. that come In "series") but it was even more blatant in this book. Whether this was the author's idea or the publisher's I cannot say, but it irritated me. I prefer to have the loose ends tied up, especially when it comes to the main mystery. It really is an excellent read, though--as long as you are prepared to shell out more money to find out the end of the story.
