Sandra Byrd in her new book, “Mist Of Midnight book coverMist Of Midnight” Book One in the Daughters of Hampshire series published by Howard Books takes us into the life of Rebecca Ravenshaw.

From the Back Cover:  Rebecca Ravenshaw, daughter of missionaries, spent most of her life in India. Following the death of her family in the Indian Mutiny, Rebecca returns to claim her family estate in Hampshire, England. Upon her return, people are surprised to see her…and highly suspicious. Less than a year earlier, an imposter had arrived with an Indian servant and assumed not only Rebecca’s name, but her home and incomes.

That pretender died within months of her arrival; the servant fled to London as the young woman was hastily buried at midnight. The locals believe that perhaps she, Rebecca, is the real imposter. Her home and her father’s investments reverted to a distant relative, the darkly charming Captain Luke Whitfield, who quickly took over. Against her best intentions, Rebecca begins to fall in love with Luke, but she is forced to question his motives—does he love her or does he just want Headbourne House? If Luke is simply after the property, as everyone suspects, will she suffer a similar fate as the first “Rebecca”?

A captivating Gothic love story set against a backdrop of intrigue and danger, Mist of Midnight will leave you breathless.

Captain Luke Whitifield may be a hero or an unscrupulous con artist out to take everything from Rebecca.  We know Rebecca is really “the” Rebecca that is entitled to Headbourne House and her inheritance. However she is going to have to prove it because there was another woman who claimed to be Rebecca but died mysteriously and now the townspeople do not trust her. How do you prove your real identity in a time when there wasn’t the kind of proof that we have today?  “Mist Of Midnight” is full of deceit, mistrust and some shady characters. It also has romance. This is a Gothic mystery at its finest. Start reading this book early as you will not want to go to sleep until you finish. Sandra Byrd did a great job.  You will like this book as well.
