The House at the End of the Moor by Michelle Griep

What Can a London Opera Star and an Escaped Dartmoor Prisoner Have in Common?

Opera star Maggie Lee escapes her opulent lifestyle when threatened by a powerful politician who aims to ruin her life. She runs off to the wilds of the moors to live in anonymity. All that changes the day she discovers a half-dead man near her house. Escaped convict Oliver Ward is on the run to prove his innocence, until he gets hurt and is taken in by Maggie. He discovers some jewels in her possession—the very same jewels that got him convicted. Together they hatch a plan to return the jewels, clearing Oliver’s name and hopefully maintaining Maggie’s anonymity.


About The Author

I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the latter. Way cheaper. I've been writing since I discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write...except for that graffiti phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?


My Review

I really enjoyed this read, and it kept my attention right to the end, and hoping that those we come to care about will survive.
Loved how the author answered all of my question as they appeared while reading this book, and even though I wanted to continue being in their lives, we do have an idea how all is resolved.
What injustice, and a different kind of law enforcement, here a prison guard that went on his own to find an escapee would be considered rogue, but here I guess it was acceptable, and all kinds of force could be used.
Through out the book, we see God's hand on these characters, and there is a reason for all, even if we don't always see it. Evil doesn't always prevail, and we get to see how it is trying hard to win.
You don't want to miss this one!

I received this book through the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
