Lady in Waiting Review

About this book:
Love is a choice you make every day.     Content in her comfortable marriage of twenty-two years, Jane Lindsay had never expected to watch her husband,  rad, pack his belongings and walk out the door of their Manhattan home. But when it happens, she feels powerless to stop him and the course of events that follow Brad’s departure.
     Jane finds an old ring in a box of relics from a British jumble sale and discovers a Latin inscription in the band along with just one recognizable word: Jane. Feeling an instant connection to the mysterious ring bearing her namesake, Jane begins a journey to learn more about the ring—and perhaps about herself.

     In the sixteenth-century, Lucy Day becomes the dressmaker to Lady Jane Grey, an innocent young woman whose fate seems to be controlled by a dangerous political and religious climate, one threatening to deny her true love and pursuit of her own interests.
     As the stories of both Janes dovetail through the journey of one ring, it becomes clear that each woman has far more infl uence over her life than she once imagined. It all comes down to the choices each makes despite the realities they face.

I wasn't sure I would like this book when I first read the cover, but I thought I would give it a try anyway.  This was my first time reading a book by Susan Meissner and I must say she left me wanting more.  I loved this book!  I love her style of writing.  This novel kept me interested from the very beginning.  I love how she connected the two women by a simple ring even though they were born centuries apart.  I highly recommend this book and am eager to read more by Susan Meissner.

(I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions expressed are my own.)
