Warm-hearted Victorian romance brings 1880s London to life.
When a series of circumstances beyond her control leave Rosalyn Bernay alone and penniless in London, she chances upon a job backstage at a theater that is presenting the most popular show in London. A talented musician and singer, she feels immediately at home and soon becomes enthralled with the idea of pursuing a career on the stage.
A hand injury during a skirmish in India has forced Nate Moran out of the army until he recovers. Filling his time at a stable of horses for hire in London, he has also spent the past two months working nights as a stagehand, filling in for his injured brother. Although he’s glad he can help his family through a tough time, he is counting the days until he can rejoin his regiment. London holds bitter memories for him that he is anxious to escape. But then he meets the beautiful woman who has found a new lease on life in the very place Nate can’t wait to leave behind.

My Review





The author gives us a glimpse into the world of theater back in 1870’s England, and the name drops of Gilbert and Sullivan, well known opera producers whose names live on.
Right from the beginning to the end of this book the author showed us how God played a roll in this young woman’s life, she ends up in the right place at the right time. Even when danger lurks somehow she becomes aware of her plight and is given time to flee.
Having grown up in a Christian orphanage Rosalyn has known her share of hardship, and finally ends up all alone in London, then becoming penniless and fleeing from a crime she never committed. She finally ends up at the theater and ends up as a dresser, right spot at the right time, definitely!
Then a meeting with a man whom is carrying his own demons, but has such a huge heart, Nate, he is working in his injured brother’s place to hold his job. Coincidence he is there with Rosalyn, don’t think so, but will these two be able to make a connection despite there different goals.
The author has given the opening for a new novel to come, first with sister Julia, a woman determined to break into a man’s world and become a doctor, and then I’m sure we will be seeing younger sister Cara.
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review
