What a neat story! Lady in Waiting isn't just a paranormal romance; it blurs many genre lines in its crossing. You will find a mystery, human interest, and romance, all springing from the idea of "what if" that sends the reader on their way. This is a book that could be enjoyed by the young as well as the adult reader and, I think, as well appreciated.
The idea behind the book is intriguing and shows original thinking by an imaginative author as she constructs a world with a different view, one in which you will enjoy your visit. The story will pull you along as the very human characters search for a way out of a their dilemma. The descriptive passages contain the mixture of color and light that will enable any reader to picture the passing scenes, the homes, the clothes.
Set in an English country manor, the story takes place in two time zones. The idea behind it is fresh and requires only that the reader suspend any scepticism about time travel for a richly rewarding read.
Joanna Blake and Dr. William Thomas are linked by the present and each is a prisoner of the past. Dr. Thomas comes into Joanna's life through the intervention of the vicar who tells him that the young woman needs help because she never leaves her house. He takes on the task of curing what he supposes to be agoraphobia and learns the problem is something very different, something beyond his experience.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read for relaxation and pure enjoyment.
