Baker Publishing Group
From an award-winning author comes a tale of a young midwife who meets a strange man on a misty Virginia beach in the early 1800s, little knowing that this chance encounter will change her life forever.
By virtue of her profession as a midwife, Tabitha Eckles is the keeper of many secrets: the names of fathers of illegitimate children, the level of love and harmony within many a marriage, and now the identity of a man who may have caused his wife's death. Dominick Cherrett is a man with his own secret to keep: namely, what he, a British nobleman, is doing on American soil working as a bondsman in the home of Mayor Kendall, a Southern gentleman with his eye on a higher office.By chance one morning before the dawn has broken, Tabitha and Dominick cross paths on a misty beachhead, leading them on a twisted path through kidnappings, death threats, public disgrace, and . . . love? Can Tabitha trust Dominick? What might he be hiding? And can either of them find true love in a world that seems set against them?With stirring writing that puts readers directly into the story, Lady in the Mist expertly explores themes of identity, misperception, and love's discovery.

I like the story line however the pacing of the book is awkward. Each chapter ends with a cliffhanger but it is not continued in the next instead scenes are changed and the results of the previous chapter are explained in a very round about way.
