Tour: A Lady's Maid by Jen Geigle Johnson



A Lady's Maid by Jen Geigle Johnson.
Audience/Genre: Historical Fiction, Clean Read.
Publication: August 1st 2019 by Covenant Communications.
Molly O’Malley, lady’s maid to the progressive Lady Amanda Halloway, is determined to continue the life’s work of her lost love, killed in the Peterloo Massacre. But when her efforts and a trip to Lady Halloway’s charitable orphanage culminate in her own abduction, Molly’s eyes are opened to the horrifying crimes transpiring in the city’s slums. Despite the risks, she broadens her mission and is drawn ever closer to the peril all around them.

Thomas Flaherty, a footman in the Halloway household, has been with Molly from the beginning, but he fears she will never trust him with her heart. Even though her cause and happiness are of foremost importance to him, his loyal patience is tested by the fears that keep her at a distance. But with their safety on the line, Thomas is resolved to sacrifice everything for the woman he loves.

Risking their lives and their love, Molly and Thomas and a team of nobles on their side will stop at nothing to empower the powerless, no matter the personal cost.

Reviewed by Kelly.

This is not your typical historical book at least for me. I usually like the romance in them. The romance in this book is very light and secondary to the plot of getting Parliament to sign a women’s suffrage bill. There is some fact mixed into the book and a piece of note after the book ends.

Molly is Lady Amanda’s personal maid. Lady Amanda has been working on getting women the right to vote. And Molly is totally on board with it. Molly acts before she thinks and she gets herself into some major problems. Molly has a huge heart and just wants justice for all!

Chloe is the daughter of a high nobleman. She is also shy. But as she learns more about the movement, she finds her own voice.

Annesley is the son of another high nobleman who is caught in the snares of an evil bossman who is willing to help everyone out of their debts in return for helping him with his side business of brothel and pretty much free child labor in the factories. Most of the children go because their parents are high on opium or the like and are told to go.

Annesley was also a spy once and was now out of the business until he is blackmailed into doing some spywork about the movement. Chloe is someone whom he is very fond of and she is right in the middle of the intel and Annesley is sick about it and left with nothing to do about it.

Molly gets in deep with the evil Theo and learns of all he does. She is determined to right this injustice. There are no indecent scenes but there is a child who gets hurt in the factory. There is a kissing scene or two towards the end.

If you are looking for women’s suffrage, child labor laws, woman who fight for justice, parliament, the start of change in England, orphanges, a well written story, finding freedom and happiness with a little romance sprinkled in then this might be for you!

Jen Geigle Johnson once greeted an ancient turtle under the water by grabbing her fin. Other vital things to know: the sound a water-ski makes on glassy water and how to fall down steep moguls with grace. No mountain is too steep for her to climb, yet. During a study break date in college, she sat on top of a jeep's roll bars up in the mountains and fell in love. She discovered her passion for England while kayaking on the Thames near London as a young teenager.

Now an award-winning author and mother of six, she loves to share bits of history that might otherwise be forgotten. Whether in Regency England, the French Revolution, or Colonial America, her romance novels are much like life is supposed to be: full of adventure. She is a member of the RWA, the SCBWI, and LDStorymakers. She is also the chair of the Lonestar.Ink writing conference.
