Lady Maybe takes place in Regency-era England, where a knighted gentleman, his wife, and her companion set off on a journey together.  When tragedy strikes and they become separated, one of the ladies loses her memory of the entire event.  After being rescued by a neighboring doctor and his son, the travelers attempt to piece together the truth behind their accident, in order to figure out their location and circumstances.  In a case of mistaken identity, one of the travelers must choose between accepting their new circumstances or facing the truth that could damage her reputation forever, while the others must face the consequences of long-held secrets.

 

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed reading Lady Maybe.  Typically, I solely read fiction released by Christian publishers.  However, I was willing to take a chance on a book by Julie Klassen, a well-established author known for her Christian Regency-era romances.  The novel contains some themes that would normally not be found in most Christian fiction, particularly adultery and some physically-romantic scenes (although nothing that would be considered graphic).  It actually reminded me of several themes utilized in Ms. Klassen’s debut novel, Lady of Milkweed Manor, particularly an out-of-wedlock pregnancy.  Personally, these themes made that novel my least favorite out of her works.  Within the format of a non-Christian publisher, I was rather impressed at the novel’s relative cleanliness in terms of content.  I also appreciated the inclusion of some Christian references, which made for a much stronger story and character development that resulted in a satisfying, if not unexpected, conclusion.
