In the Aerie of the Wolf
A Division of Nordskog Publishing
Wow! When I selected this book I had no idea what to expect, the cover of the book put me off a bit, I wasn't sure if it was going to be medieval fantasy or what. I had never heard of the author, but the blurb about the book caught my eye and I requested it. I am so happy I did!!! Having never heard of the author or the publisher, it was risky, but well worth it.
Set in the 18th century, we are introduced to the beautiful younger daughter of a poor nobleman, who really hasn't much hope to marry her off too well. Imagine his shock and surprise when a servant of a well to do Lord comes offering for her hand. With a very large financial dowry gift to sweeten the pot, Anne Crofton nearly feels like she has been sold off for marriage. Even more dismaying is the fact that her groom insists she be brought to his estate for the wedding, is this a hoax? Finding out her new groom is very elusive worries Anne even more. The sudden death of the vicar of the Aerie is adding more worry to her already wavering thoughts. Finding herself in the midst of a family feud, and in danger also, makes Anne sure she should have never come here. Her only saving grace and hold to reality is her nightly visits in the dark with her groom to be.
A charming story of love, redemption, grace and relationship, you will definitely want to make the time to read this book. It is unlike any historical novel I have ever read, it kept my interest from beginning to end. In fact I was anxious to return to my reading after attending midweek service, anxious to see where the story would continue on to. A great book! 4 stars 343 pages US $13.95
