TLC Book Tours Book Review: A Name Unknown

About A Name Unknown

Series: Shadows Over England (Book 1)
Paperback: 432 pages
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers (July 4, 2017)
Edwardian Romance and History Gains a Twist of Suspense
Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins that helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they concentrate on stealing high-value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. But when Rosemary must determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany, she is in for the challenge of a lifetime. How does one steal a family’s history, their very name?
Peter Holstein, given his family’s German blood, writes his popular series of adventure novels under a pen name. With European politics boiling and his own neighbors suspicious of him, Peter debates whether it might be best to change his name for good. When Rosemary shows up at his door pretending to be a historian and offering to help him trace his family history, his question might be answered.
But as the two work together and Rosemary sees his gracious reaction to his neighbors’ scornful attacks, she wonders if her assignment is going down the wrong path. Is it too late to help him prove that he’s more than his name?

Review: A Name Unknown is set in one of my favorite time periods. (Anywhere around the time of The Great War) Its also the first book in a new series. (One I think I'll want to continue on with)

Rosemary is an orphan who grew up as a pickpocket. She's one of the oldest in the "family" and she has received a new job, trying to find information on an author who has the ear of the king and has ties to Germany.

Peter was all I could want in a hero.

This is an absolutely stunning story

Rating: 5 flowers
