If you have not read anything by Joanna Davidson Politano, STOP what you are doing and find a novel by her right now! Seriously. She is one of my absolute favorite authors right now. Totally different than Dekker, but up there with him for me!!
Finding Lady Enderly was an amazing story, the twists and turns keep you guessing! Meeting Raina was delightful, but seeing her blossom into the woman she was meant to be was remarkable.
I have loved the past two novels that Ms. Politano has written, and this one is another piece of perfection (read reviews for Rumored Fortune HERE and Lady Jayne Disappears HERE) ! Her character development is almost unmatched. Her stories are absolutely charming and captivating at the same time. I simply love to fall into one of her stories! The only problem I have at all, is that I read them too fast and then I miss the characters when the story ends. Seriously. I cannot get enough of Ms. Politano’s books!
How would I summarize the style of Finding Lady Enderly and Ms. Politano’s others? They are historical, dramatic, light romance, and huge character growth and redemption. They twist and turn when you least expect it. You never know who is the villain, because they are so often very charming, but are they? Honestly these stories take you deep into the world where the characters live and you will not want to come back!
NOTE : I was offered a copy of Finding Lady Enderly in exchange for my honest review! I honestly loved it!!
More about the book:
“For one blessed moment, I was actually beautiful…”
Raina Bretton is a rag woman in London’s east end when a handsome stranger appears in a dank alley and offers her a glittering smile and a chance for adventure. Rothburne Abbey has a unique position for her, one that will take her away from her hardscrabble life and give her a chance to be a lady. Things she could only dream of might be coming true. But some dreams turn out to be nightmares.
“I do not truly wish for all my dreams to come true. After all, nightmares are one type of dream.”
Though Raina has traded squalor for silk and satin, something about the abbey is deeply unsettling. As she wrestles with her true identity, the ruin, decay, and secrets she finds at the heart of the old mansion tear at her confidence and threaten to reveal her for who she really is. Only one man stands between her and the danger that lurks within–and only if he decides to keep her biggest secret hidden.Open publish panel
