This book was a joy to read and review. Finding Landy Enderly by Joanna Davidson Politano captures your attention by the end of the first paragraph when Raina is caught in a Cinderella moment.
Haven’t we all dreamed of being someone else for just a bit? That happened to Louisa in Mind of Her Own–writing that book almost made me what to hit my own head! But that’s a contemporary book and Finding Lady Enderly is historical so let’s get back to Raina!
Imagine living in London in squalor stitching rags together to make money. The clothing you wear is seldom clean. You share a room with a widow and story your valuables behind a loose brick in the wall. Your family has left you for better lives.
People make fun of you and you’re known as the Rag Woman, no one calls you by your name. What if the man you loved had drowned at sea before he asked you to marry him? You’d be miserable right?
Then this amazing thing happens. You get an offer to be a substitute countess! You feel a little strange about it but it will change your life forever.
Would you do it? All the servants, the big house, the clothes… too perfect to be true? Yes, yes it is. But Raina is stuck and she can’t see a way out but it is a book so there is a way out.
There are twists and turns and you’ll be racing to the end to discover them all in this gothic era novel.
