Forced to leave her childhood home, Abigail Clarke flees to the royal capital of North Carolina. She soon finds that there are few jobs for a girl who's only been trained to be a planter's wife or a healer. Starting over as Abby, she lies her way into a position as a maid in the royal governor's household.
But her healing skills–and her magical talent for knowing–have drawn the attention of the governor's stepson. Nathaniel Eton is charming, mysterious–and completely forbidden to a servant. Yet Abby can't resist her fascination with him…until his secrets threaten to put the fragile, new life she's created into jeopardy.
About the Author
Elizabeth Langston lives in North Carolina, halfway between the beaches and the mountains. She has two twenty-something daughters, one old husband, and too many computers to count. When she's not writing software or stories, Elizabeth loves to travel with her family, watch dance reality shows on TV, and dream about which restaurant ought to get her business that night.
Elizabeth has two YA paranormal trilogies. The I WISH series tells the story of a "genie" who helps 3 friends struggle through the hardest year of their lives. The WHISPER FALLS series is YA time travel and follows a modern-day athlete as he develops a "long-distance" relationship with an indentured servant girl from 18th century North Carolina.
Elizabeth also writes YA contemporary romance as Julia Day. Learn more about Elizabeth at http://www.elizabethLangston.net .
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Every time I read an Elizabeth Langston novel, I am impressed again with how beautifully she writes, how compelling the narrative and characters are, and how much I am drawn into her stories. I thought the Whisper Falls series was done, but was delighted to see she has more to tell. This story takes place in the Whisper Falls "universe," but unlike the series, this story is not SF/fantasy, but rather a straight historical fiction story. We learn the background story of two characters who appear in the Whisper Falls novels, but until now we did not know much about them, except that their roles were critical in advancing the stories. Now we learn more about them and understand why they were so willing to help Suzanna and Mark. I hope there will be more novellas. There are other characters I would love to know more about.
