Griep (The Thief of Blackfriars Lane) delivers a thrilling Regency romance centered on a life-changing surgery. In 1815 London, independent Amelia Balfour is proud of her career as a travel writer, but when her estranged father dies, she becomes guardian of her brother, Colin, a gentle giant with a disfigured face. Before dying, their father arranged for Uriah Peckwood to perform a cutting-edge surgery on Colin to correct his disfigurement. Graham Lambert, a man desperate to atone for past sins, is Peckwood’s new assistant, and he soon grows uneasy about Peckwood’s methods, concerns that increase when he discovers a corpse in Peckwood’s room. Over the weeks leading up to Colin’s surgery, Graham falls in love with Amelia, who returns Graham’s feelings but is torn between choosing marriage or her career. Colin places his trust in God before the risky surgery, and Amelia and Graham must also learn to rely on God after the surgery goes awry. Frankenstein fans will appreciate the nod to that story throughout Griep’s faith-infused homage, including an appearance by Mary Godwin herself. Readers who enjoy historical inspirationals should take a look. (Nov.)
