This week I’m featuring A Lady in Attendance by Rachel Fordham
I have adored every single other read by Rachel Fordham and so I can’t wait for her next one to release! There’s still a bit of a wait since it doesn’t release until June 1, but it’s currently available for pre-order, and Baker is currently having an AMAZING sale on pre-orders with free shipping so now is the time to shop! (Yes, I have already done so myself 😉 )
About the Book:
Five years in a New York state reformatory have left a blemish on Hazel’s real name. So when she takes a job as Doctor Gilbert Watts’s lady in attendance in 1898, she does so under an alias. In the presence of her quiet and pious employer, Hazel finds more than an income. She finds a friend and a hope that if she can set her tarnished past in order, she might have a future after all.
As Gilbert becomes accustomed to the pleasant chatter of his new dental assistant, he can’t help but sense something secretive about her. Perhaps there is more to this woman than meets the eye. Can the questions that loom between them ever be answered? Or will the deeds of days gone by forever rob the future of its possibilities?
Rachel Fordham pens a tender tale of a soft-spoken man, a hardened woman, and the friends that stand by them as they work toward a common purpose–to expunge the record of someone society deemed beyond saving–and perhaps find love along the way.
