Book Review - THE LOST HEIRESS by Roseanna M. White
Definitely five big stars for this dramatic, suspenseful, inspirational, historical romance. I'd love to see this made into a movie--or better yet, a TV series?
You take one young woman, the illegitimate daughter of the famous actress Collette Sabatini and supposedly Prince Louis Grimaldi--but then Brook finds out the actress and the prince are not even remotely related to her. The actress dies without telling Brook who her parents are, but not without giving her a pearl necklace and several letters written by someone to her real mother, a woman who died in a tragic accident when Brook was a baby.
And then you take one young nobleman, Justin, heir to a dukedom and her best friend, and you send him from Monaco to England with one of the letters. He's going to college, but he tells young Brook he will search for her relatives. He finds some answers, but many more questions.
Why did Brook's mother run away from her husband's estate in the middle of a dark, stormy night? Why did she beg Collette with her dying breath to take Brook far away and pretend the child was the actress's own? Why does Brook's father know nothing about the pearl necklace? What is there about that handsome gentleman that makes her heart go ice cold? Will her best friend become more than a friend? And why does she have the same nightmare every night?
The answers--most of them--can be found in this book. Plus one more question.
Available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Christian Book Distributors. Hurry.
