In the Shadow of Croft Tower by Abigail Wilson

In the Shadow of Croft Tower by Abigail Wilson

From debut author Abigail Wilson comes a mysterious Regency tale of secrets and spies, love and treachery. Orphaned Sybil Delafield jumps at the opportunity for a position at the mysterious Croft Towers. She believes she was hired to act as companion to a dying woman, but a highway robbery and a hostile welcome from the Chalcroft family cause her to wonder if she was actually hired to help someone spy for France. An unsolved murder adds intrigue to this already secretive family, and Sybil recognizes Mrs. Chalcroft’s handsome grandson as one of the infamous highwaymen who robbed her. Sybil must determine if this man’s charming smile and earnest eyes speak the truth or if he is simply using her like others in the house. Everyone seems to have something to hide, and Sybil must decide who to trust while also coming to terms with the truth about her own past.

My review

I loved this book. This story captured my attention from the very beginning.  I couldn’t put it down and when I did, I found myself thinking about it.  Abigal Wilson blends mystery, romance, and adventure in her story and out comes this unique and fascinating tale. The characters especially Sybil and Mr. Sinclair and their relationship made me wish they were real. Each person in this story played their part well. I wasn’t sure who to trust and believe as differing things kept coming up.  Abigal Wilson weaves important  truths about forgiveness, second chances, and hope throughout this story.  I believe that we as readers can learn these truths right along with the characters.
