"Mist of Midnight is wonderfully atmospheric, with all the right elements for a true Gothic novel, from sounds that go bump in the night to characters who are not at all what they seem. The spiritual underpinning is solid, comforting, even as we're trapped in the author's finely spun web of mystery, romance, and a sense of foreboding that doesn't lift until the final page. Charlotte Brontë? Victoria Holt? Meet Sandra Byrd, the modern mistress of Gothic romance!” Liz Curtis Higgs, New York Times best-selling author of Mine Is the Night
One of the many things I love about a Sandra Byrd novel is knowing that her words will transport me to another place and time, win me over with intriguing and complex characters and that I’ll savor every word. Mist of Midnight is no exception. I loved this book! Sandra Byrd could belong to the writing group of the Bronte sisters if they’d had one. Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre along with crumbling mansions, mysterious distant cousins and one woman’s journey to prove who she really is are just few layers that ripple through the mists. Bravo, Sandra! Another winner. Jane Kirkpatrick, Award-winning author of A Light in the Wilderness.
“From the first word to the last, Mist of Midnight is a completely absorbing romantic, and mysterious, novel. Ms. Byrd’s writing is splendid, and her characters are so complex and endearing that they leap off the pages. I couldn’t put it down. An absolutely irresistible read!” ------ Anne Girard, author of Madame Picasso)
Richly written and multi-layered, Mist of Midnight blends traditional England and exotic India in an historical feat worthy of Victoria Holt. Breathless danger, romance, and intrigue made this series opener by the ultra-talented Sandra Byrd a compelling must read! Laura Frantz, author of Love’s Reckoning
A marvelous mingling of mystery and deeply moving family and romantic love, Mist of Midnight kept me guessing until the very end. A house on a cliff, a Victorian-Gothic atmosphere, a cast of suspicious characters including a dark, brooding hero and a strong heroine: shades (or mists) of Jane Eyre and Rebecca! I look forward to the next novel in this compelling, new series. Karen Harper, NYTimes bestselling author of Mistress of Mourning
