By Jessica Dotta / Tyndale House
Having finally discovered the truth of her birthright, Julia Elliston is determined to outwit Chance Macy at his own game. Holding a secret he’d kill to keep, however, is proving more difficult than she imagined.
Just when Julia thinks she’s managed to untangle herself from Macy’s clutches, he changes tactics with a risky ploy. As the scandal of the century breaks loose, drawing rooms all over London whisper what so far newspapers have not dared to print: Macy’s lost bride is none other than Lord Pierson’s daughter—and one of the most controversial cases of marital law ever seen comes before Victorian courts.
Though Julia knows Macy’s version of events is another masterful manipulation, public opinion is swaying in his favor. Caught in a web of deceit and lies, armed only with a fledgling faith, Julia must face her fiercest trial yet.
I can honestly tell you I was not sure where Ms. Dotta was going to take this but I really did not expect it to go the way it did. The whole time I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what was going to happen next or wondering how she was going to get out of this mess now. Having anticipated this book since I began reading this series I literally devoured this third and final book.
I will not be rude and give away the ending but I have very mixed emotions about how things ended on this one. I really enjoyed the story but I’m not sure that I really wanted what happened to happen but life is not always perfect and through our trials and tribulations we learn much like Julia did to trust God to help work out her future. It was a struggle for Julia to finally come to the peace that she desperately needed but I think she finally found it but not in the way any of us would have imagined.
Ms. Dotta writes very deeply and when you want a good novel that has the feel of Bronte or Austen then I highly recommend this series. She knows how to tell a good story and how to make you fall in love with the hero and heroine and you also love to hate the villains. A good author can do that. I really do look forward to reading even more by Jessica Dotta.
