To avoid marriage to a dishonorable man, Margaret Macy flees London disguised as a housemaid. If she can remain unwed until her next birthday, she will receive an inheritance, and with it, sweet independence. But she never planned on actually working as a servant. And certainly not at Fairbourne Hall—the home of two former suitors.I really liked this book enormously and definitely plan to seek out other books by Julie Klassen. I thought the story was well-written and the characters both believable and likeable. I found the discussion of slavery and emancipation that went on throughout the book to be very interesting. And the stories of love and forgiveness and finding out the truth about both yourself and others were also very enjoyable. There is some discussion of faith and God in the book as well, but it's not a major element of the storyline.
As she fumbles through the first real work of her life, Margaret struggles to keep her identity secret. When a trap is set to force her from hiding, will love or danger find her first?
All in all, this was a lovely historical novel that I really enjoyed and that I recommend wholeheartedly if you're looking for a new romance book to read!
