The year is 1838, and seventeen-year-old Julia Elliston's position has never been more fragile. Orphaned and unmarried in a time when women are legal property of their fathers, husbands, and guardians, she finds herself at the mercy of an anonymous guardian who plans to establish her as a servant in far-off Scotland.With two months to devise a better plan, Julia's first choice to marry her childhood sweetheart is denied. But when a titled dowager offers to introduce Julia into society, a realm of possibilities opens. However, treachery and deception are as much a part of Victorian society as titles and decorum, and Julia quickly discovers her present is deeply entangled with her mother's mysterious past. Before she knows what's happening, Julia finds herself a pawn in a deadly game between two of the country's most powerful men. With no laws to protect her, she must unravel the secrets on her own. But sometimes truth is elusive and knowledge is deadly.

I absolutely loved this book. The writing was brilliant and the story kept me guessing. Highly recommend it!

Everything about her world is not as it appears. by BTSCelebs on 8/30/2013

Who Is Mr. Macy?
The riveting tale makes readers feel like Alice falling in the rabbit hole! The twists and turns are unfathomable as the protagonist Julia Elliston is orphaned, forced to choose a husband of nobility and eventually lands in one of the most elegant and upscale estates in England. Everything about her world is not as it appears. It seems like one character has literally been raised from the dead and Julia arrives in paradise.
BTSCelebs was supplied a complimentary copy of the book thru Tyndale for review.
