A Name Unknown
The latest from Roseanna M. White, entitled A Name Unknown, is set again in England. The year is 1919, just before the start of World War I. Rosemary Gresham grew up on the streets of London, learning how to pick pockets as a means to survive. Now in her twenties, she has moved on to larger fish. Rosemary's latest prize, 1000 pounds, is hers, if she is able to determine whether Peter Holstein is a true Englishman or actually a spy from Germany!
Rosemary is able to gain entry into Peter's home by presenting herself as Rosemary Gresham, Librarian. Peter is in need of someone to organize his "out of control" library and Rosemary fits the bill! As you watch Rosemary begin to organize the library, you will see that she is also looking for evidence concerning Peter's loyalty. Soon you will realize that something is growing between Peter and Rosemary. You wonder if it will be merely friendship or something more!
Follow this tale to the final page, as you wait to see if Peter will learn that Rosemary is actually a thief, and if Rosemary will learn that Peter is a well-known author!
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my unbiased review.
