Lady in the Mist by Laurie Alice Eakes

 ...from the life of Diana Lesire Brandmeyer
Lady in the Mist by Laurie Alice Eakes

Amazing book!
Tabitha Eckles is a midwife in Virginia in 1809, and she’s single. This is a huge deal, it simply wasn’t done back then. A midwife had to be married. Tabitha was able to find a way around that since there wasn’t anyone else that could be of service. Being a midwife ran in her family and she was the only one left.

Dominick Cherrett is a redemptioner from England complete with secrets and good looks.

Their paths cross in the mist from the ocean and life gets exciting. From threats on Tabitha’s life and an old love reappearing, and village men disappearing you aren’t quite sure who the bad guy is.
Eakes writes with beauty using senses not ordinarily tapped by writers. She brings her books to life with more than, ‘the mist was thick ’ with lines like, “A hint of sun glowed along the line between sea and sky, turning the sand to a silvery gray and the mist to tendrils of gauze.” 

This reader came away delighted with this love story.
Back Cover Copy
By virtue of her profession as a midwife, Tabitha Eckles is the keeper of many secrets. Dominick Cherret is a man with his own secret to keep:  namely, why he, a British aristocrat, is on American soil working as an indentured servant.

In a time when relations between America and England rest on the edge of a knife, Tabitha and Dominick cross paths, leading them on a journey of intrigue, threats, public disgrace and …love. But can Tabitha trust Dominick? Finding true love seems impossible in a world set against them.

With stirring writing that draws you directly into the story. Lady in the Mist takes you on the thrilling ride of love’s discovery.
