Lady In Waiting
We make them everyday. Sometimes we truly believe however, that some of those choices are made for us.
Overdemanding parents who assert their will for us in our lives setting expectations on what they feel is "best" for us.
Today we live in a world where it's OK to make choices.
In the early 1500's, most choices for daughters were made by their parents. Mostly for the benefit and well being of their daughter and family, but the daughters desires were never really considered.
Jane Lindsay believes that where she is at today in her personal life, her professional one and even who she is married to were not her choices but that of her overbearing parents. Now that Jane has been dealt with her husband Brad's decision to give their marriage some time while he relocates to a different city, Jane once more feels that nothing is within her control.
Jane Grey was only 11, when she felt she had found the perfect man for her. He could provide for her and her family and was an up and coming member of the nobility class. Yet her choice was not hers to make. It was up to her parents. Their decision was all about influence and political posturing within the country over the next Queen of England during the reformation.
Oh how she wishes her parents would ask for her opinion, but that is not a choice she has.
When a mysterious ring turns up in a centuries old prayer book with a Latin inscription from the Song of Solomon with the name Jane on it, it will unite both of their lives in unique, mysterious and life changing ways. What will they choose to do with their fate?
I received the latest novel Lady In Waiting by Susan Meissner compliments of WaterBrook Multnomah for my honest review. Being a fan from many years ago of the life of Lady Jane Grey and her historical life, I fell in love with the two parallel lives of both Jane's in two different periods of time that overlap one another. This one is a 5 out of 5 stars for anyone who loves historical Christian romance.
