it was amazing

Deanna Raybourn has released another chapter in the wonderful story of her Lady Julia Grey. Number Three, Silent on the Moor, is another interesting, mysterious, romantic tale. Julia risks traveling to the far reaches of Yorkshire to find what has become of her troubled but magnetic Nicolas Brisbane.

If you are looking for a different kind of a story that doesn't fall easily into a category, you'll like this book. The cover art may say romance, but this book is great mystery and excellently written fiction in general. Julia is a woman out of her time (which is the l9th century) and she goes about not breaking society's rules as much as not really entering into them to start with. She is intelligent, fallible, and rich (and has reasons to wish she wasn't).

Julia finds Nicholas in trouble and dealing with his past as Silent on the Moor reveals more of his story. The author continues to build solid characters with many facets and emotions, who have a great history and connection to each other.

If you haven't read the first in the series, you'll want to do so as you become absorbed here in her latest number.
